Mobile gamers can expect Apex Legends from developer Respawn to arrive on mobile devices at some point in the future, at least based on comments made by EA in its newly published quarterly financial report. Wilson talked a little about the success of the EA Sports titles over the previous year, the rapid expansion of the Battlefield V active players count with the introduction of Firestorm in Q4, and the slightly underwhelming launch of Anthem.

For digital categories, EA reported $169 million in revenue from full game downloads (a 27 percent decrease from last year's $232 million), $714 million in live services revenue (a 2 percent increase year-over-year), and $182 million in mobile revenue (a 6 percent increase). I think the upcoming games roster will be fleshed-out some more shortly - at EA Play 2019, part of E3 in mid-June.
