Respawn Entertainment has explained a bit about the technical updates and quality of life changes coming to Apex Legends, but it’s probably not the news you want to know. In an AMA on Reddit this weekend, Respawn's director of communications, Ryan K. Rigney, explained that the cross-platform progression was scheduled to be released next year. Rigney also confirmed that a major graphical update to the game, with the goal of sending it to 120 FPS, was still in progress.
Oh, and they’ll probably be a nerve for the new stealth legend Seer. So I guess you use our Seer guide before we need to update it.
The delay in cross-progression has been caused by the technical complexity of it, a task that Rigney described as "gnarly as hell." He the fun of resources to avoid the scourge of piracy that has plagued Apex Legends and the two Titanfall games has not helped. Oh, and there are also cheaters that everyone has to deal with thanks to cross-play.
Still, Rigney said of the cross-progression that "we're working on it and we're committed to delivering it."
Respawn promised a graphics update to coincide with the launch of the new generation of consoles and detailed this 120 FPS goal earlier this year, but not much has been said since then. "I wish I had an update to share," Rigney said of the update, "but for now we can't say anything definitive, so we can't spoil anything here. Trust us, it's up and running too." excited about it ".
