Apex Legends Cross-Progression Out 2022; Level-Cap Increase Coming, But Wants to “Future Proof” It

Apex Legends Cross-Progression

Apex players hoping to be able to transfer their progression to another platform anytime soon, Respawn has confirmed today that Apex Legends cross-progression will be making its way next year at the earliest.

This was revealed by the studio in a recent Apex Legends Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) where Respawn Entertainment’s Director of Comms, Ryan K. Rigney (rkrigney), confirmed the Apex Legends cross-progression system is currently targeting next year for release, and explained the reason why it’s taking so long to get it out.

Q: Any rough timeline on Cross Progression? Or maybe share some light on what the issue is that has prevented it for so long now?

rkrigney: Next year.

Cross progression is gnarly as hell in terms of being a problem to solve. It’s not only that you have to solve the technical challenge of merging existing accounts, but there are also legal and contractual issues to navigate with purchasing on other platforms. Different regions have different laws. It’s a mess. But we’re working on it, and we’re committed to delivering it.

In the same Q&A, Respawn Entertainment Team Director at Vancouver Steve Ferreira (tex10four) also confirmed that the Apex Legends level cap is getting increased! Alongside that, the studio is making changes to the progression in order to “future proof” it.

Q: Are we going to see a level cap increase that goes beyond just another couple 100 levels? Have you guys thought of Regenning like how TF2 does it?

tex10four: The level cap is one of those features that has existed for a long time and we’ve been looking to update it for along time too but we plan to do this in a few phases. First we are planning to straight up increase the cap with maybe a couple small changes in the mix but we also want to future proof it with some of the other progression mechanics we are developing that are not yet ready. With that said we may hold out a little longer to ensure these core systems are as consistent and stable and future proof as we can with fewer bigger changes rather than constantly making small changes.

All of that is to say you can expect a more significant update to the whole system in the future with a possible level cap between that larger update when our other progression system features are ready for prime time.

No specific release date for when this level cap increase has been mentioned though, but hopefully it’ll be sometime this year.
