Respawn's cross-platform ambitions for Apex Legends were confirmed by EA CEO Andrew Wilson.

After a hard 2018 characterised by sluggish sales and further loss of ground to multiplayer juggernaut 'Fortnite', EA has taken another huge hit after newly released earnings figures of $262 million for Q3 2018 showed that the company missed its $1.38 billion revenue target for 2018 by some way.

Following the swift announcement and release of Apex Legends, many fans of Respawn Entertainment were disappointed that the studio isn't making Titanfall 3.

"As I said earlier, we are looking at how to take the game to mobile and cross-play over time, and I also expect that this game will have tremendous value in Asia, and we're in conversations about that", said Wilson. The company was most disappointed in the low Battlefield V sales, as well as its mobile-gaming revenue. This seems to contrast EA's recent earnings report, which states that the studio will deliver another premium Titanfall game by the end of the year.

"What we have seen is that the community who plays these types of games is hundreds of millions of people strong", Wilson explained during EA's Q3 Investors call. Will you still play it even if it doesn't have walljumping and titans?
