Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends Mobile, became a massive reason for disappointment for the mobile community when they failed to soft launch the mobile title as promised weeks ago.

Apex Mobile was supposed to come out in selected regions on February 28. However, after hours of waiting, the community realized that the title would not be released on the expected date.

Apex Legends fans across the globe have long been waiting for this launch. This is because after what seems like years, the mobile community will experience battle royale in a whole new manner, something restricted to PCs and consoles.

However, the recent delay has resulted in disappointment, and Respawn has addressed the mishap and provided a new date for the soft launch.


Ukraine-Russia crisis cited as official reason behind delay of Apex Legends Mobile soft launch

The developers at Respawn have responded and given a reason behind their inability to launch Apex Legends Mobile on February 28, as announced earlier. In an updated blog post, the studio cited the ongoing Ukraine-Russia crisis as the reason behind the delay.

Furthermore, a new date for the soft launch has also been provided:

Due to current world events, we made the decision to shift the limited regional launch of Apex Legends Mobile. Our intention is to now release the game to participating countries on March 7. Details: bit.ly/3t0uaqj

While the post never mentions Ukraine or Russia categorically, the ongoing war is the biggest "world event" at the moment. It is understandable how such a sensitive time can get difficult for people around the globe.
