The developer of Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment, is very much aware of the appeals made by fans for a Nintendo Switch version of the battle royale game. However, it looks like it might not happen or maybe it might not happen yet, well at least that’s what Respawn lets on. The project lead, Drew McCoy said in an interview with Wired that the studio is currently occupied with a lot of things but sadly, the Switch edition of the popular game is not one of them.

"If Switch was coming, we would tell you and we would blast it across the world." says McCoy. "We are hearing all the Switch players who say they want the game. I can't make any promises right now. We have a lot of things that we're working on, so stay tuned for anything in the future. But currently we don't have anything to announce."

This news doesn’t come as a surprise at all, seeing as Respawn has its hands full with the upcoming release of publisher Electronic Arts’ latest Star Wars title, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This is not the time to lose hope just yet Switch players, nothing has been announced for now, but it’s good to know that Respawn is hearing and considering the demands of the players. For now, you can still enjoy Apex Legends on your Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Another piece of exciting news revealed by McCoy is that the studio is looking into the prospect of cross-play between current gen consoles and PC. This allows the players using different platforms to play with each other, regardless of online service.

In the meantime, Respawn focused on unveiling their newest and hottest action game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order last weekend during the Star Wars Celebration event held in Chicago, in addition to this, they are also working on a virtual reality game for the Oculus Rift, as well as expressing their interest in continuing their Titanfall series.
