Apex Legends Crossplay Leak Reveals Potential Release Date (VIDEO)
The Respawn Entertainment spinoff of their acclaimed Titanfall series, Apex Legends introduced a variety of fun and colorful characters in survival of the fittest mayhem. Respawn surprised many earlier this year with the announcement that not only would the game finally arrive on Nintendo Switch, but that crossplay between all of the game’s platforms would be enabled in the future. At the time, no official date for Apex Legends crossplay was given, but a new leak may point towards a release date.
Dataminer Shrugtal recently shared a video discussing and showing their recent findings from the latest code update for Apex Legends on their official YouTube channel. Shrugtal begins the video by referencing an earlier video of theirs in which they claimed the big new Aftermarket update for the game would release on September 15th, based on previous datamined findings. Shrugtal claims that this release did not happen because there were delays for the launch of Apex Legends crossplay, as well as the Nintendo Switch and Steam versions of the game.
According to Shrugtal’s newer data findings, they believe that the new planned release date for Aftermarket will be October 13th. By extension, the dataminer suggests that Apex Legends crossplay will be enabled either on that day, or some day shortly after that. It would certainly make sense that EA and Respawn would not want to make the Steam and Nintendo Switch versions available until crossplay is also functioning between platforms. It is also possible that the various delays were all related due to the COVID-19 pandemic making development more difficult for remote workers. These leaks should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism, but these signs would seem to point towards crossplay reaching the Apex of its potential.
