Apex Legends Mobile is set to release on May 17th, according to a new leak from trusted video game insider Tom Henderson.
Henderson has written an article for Exputer, claiming that the mobile version of the wildly successful shooter is set to release later this month.

It will include 10 Legends at launch, will feature the classic World’s Edge and Kings Canyon, and will also have Ranked Play and a variety of mobile-exclusive modes. The game is said to have been built from the ground up for phone gaming.
Henderson has now confirmed that nine of the Legends will come from the console game, while the final one will be exclusive to the mobile game.
He has named the new Legend: they will be called Fade, and will be known as the “Phasing Punisher”.
There will be a number of new perks too for him, with a Slipstream coming in as a Passive ability, giving players a short movement speed boost after sliding. There is a Tactical ability called Flash Back, which sends you back to where you were earlier in the game.
