Apex Legends Mobile Won the Best Game of the Year at Google Play and App Store 2022 Awards
Created by Electronic Arts, Apex Legends Mobile has released in May 2022. Following the ban on BGMI in July, the Indian community experienced a shift to other titles in which Apex Legends Mobile caught the massive attention among players. This was also confirmed by two of its senior executives in an interview with Fiiber.
As a result of the sudden surge, it became hard for the developers to manage such kind of rise, given the game is still in its early stages of release. However, the creators pulled it out to some extent and improved its servers to deal with the additional strain.
“We have servers in 3 cities in India. When BGMI was banned, we strengthened the servers and tried to understand what Indian gamers want. We saw an influx in gamers, and we hope that those gamers stick around,” Myke Hoff – Senior Director of Product at Respawn Entertainment and Kevin Childress – Creative Director of Respawn Entertainment, told Fiiber in an exclusive conversation.
The game developers aim to retain their players while welcoming in more by introducing more content over the upcoming year. The focus will also be on providing a mobile-first experience, say the executives. As of today, the game only has only a couple of mobile-exclusive legends namely, Fade and Rhapsody.
It remains to be seen whether the game can maintain its win streak in the coming future with other titles like Warzone Mobile, Rainbow Six Mobile and more settling up for release in 2023.
