While the feature is said to be built for ‘small-scale use,’ Respawn still has work left to fine-tune and table it to a wider audience. Although the feature is cited to be robustly designed and will offer players cross-play for private lobbies too, besides group up across platforms.
“We made that support [for tournament mode] crossplay as well, so it can be used on console and on PC, or even a mixed lobby using crossplay. We have a separate effort that we’re doing to make it go public. I don’t have a timeline, but we’re trying to make that go as quickly as possible, where we offer the private match feature available for anybody who plays Apex,” Grenier told the publication.
Grenier even promised a ‘ton’ of Titanfall content for Apex Legends Season 9. Gamers will witness a lot of cool stuff in future updates. Rumours indicate that Blisk, the protagonist in Respawn might come to Apex Legends with a ‘Titan as his ability.’ Apex Legends Season 9 is expected to arrive on May 9, 2021, with new cosmetics and elements.
