Rumor: Apex Legends possibly coming to Switch
EA has previously indicated that it intends to give Switch additional support this year. At least in one way, that could manifest by porting the free-to-play battle royale title Apex Legends to Switch.
The speculation has come about thanks to a new article from VentureBeat. Editor Jeff Grub, who has recently reported accurate Nintendo rumors, has suggested that an announcement regarding Apex Legends for Switch could be made during the EA Play 2020 event, which will be held tomorrow. Grub labels his piece as “informed speculation.”
The official Twitter account for Apex Legends has confirmed that it will have a news update during the presentation. However, that could be for additional content planned for the game, and there’s no official confirmation at this time.
