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?
