Originally due out in Fall 2020, it was delayed into 2021, and now it seems like a release date may have been confirmed inadvertently.

Currently, Apex Legends is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as well as PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility. The game is also coming to iOS and Android devices before April 2022.
