While it’s not uncommon for online games to see their servers shut down at some point in their lifetime, Apex Legends Mobile is an incredibly young game. The game began rolling out to specific regions in February 2022 and then launched for all iOS and Android devices in May. Less than one year after that launch, the game will no longer be playable.

Apex Legends Mobile wasn’t the only EA game that had bad news to share in the company’s latest earnings report. It was also announced that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been delayed by six weeks.
