Apex Legends for Switch will likely receive cross-progression, but not for some time
March 09, 20211 min read
Today sees the release of EA's futuristic battle royale title Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, bringing all of the explosive action of the Respawn Entertainment developed shooter to the hybrid console. Players can dive straight into the action with a huge roster of "Legends", a double XP event, and the option to play with the community-at-large, thanks to its cross-play capabilities.
But for those perhaps hoping on making a permanent transition from Apex Legends' current PC and console ports to the Switch, I'm afraid that you'll have to start from scratch, as the new release does not support cross-progression - at least not in the immediate future. Speaking to Nintendo Life, Respawn's Chad Grenier spoke of his regret that the team cannot offer cross-progression at present, but that they are working hard to make it a possibility at some point down the line.
