Respawn Entertainment’s game director in charge of Apex Legends, Chad Grenier, has confirmed that all players will soon have private matches regardless of the platform.
Given the incredible popularity of “Legend of Apex”, it is a little surprising that Royal Royale does not have a universal private match feature. It has been more than two years now, and many players have asked Respawn to implement this feature, which will allow anyone to jump into a closed lobby with custom rules and players.
Currently, Apex, which is closest to the private game mode, is the tournament mode. If permission is obtained, players can organize a private lobby, and Respawn organizes the code.
In a speech to the BrownGirlGamerCode community, Chad Grenier outlined Respawn’s intention to add the feature in the near future, although he could not provide a date for the addition.
He said: “As of a few weeks ago, we have provided support [for tournament mode] And cross games, so it can be used on consoles and PCs, and even in mixed halls where cross games are used…
“We are working alone to make it publicly available. I don’t have a timetable, but we are working hard to achieve this goal as soon as possible. We provide a private game feature for all Apex players.
He continued: “Again, it’s not just turning on the feature and making it public.” “On the backend, we need to do some work to scale it up to so many people. But we are doing this work. It’s difficult. The date is given, but we hope that soon we will have private matches on all platforms, you can play different games, or organize your own events without having to ask us for the code and for the official event to happen. Yes, please continue attention.”
The news will be welcomed by many Apex fans, who have been eager to add this feature. This means that players can decide their own private lobby, customize the rules and players to suit their needs. As Grenier said, this will make the organization of the game easier because they will no longer need Respawn’s management code.
Although no date is given, we do not expect it to be released in Season 9, which will be released on May 3. It sounds like it is still under development.
