Apex Legends 120 FPS 2023 Next Gen Update: Code lines found by Apex Legends leaker “Shrugtal” suggest that the expected next-gen upgrade from Respawn Entertainment may soon be released.
The update would be release by 2021, according to the developers, but they haven’t provided any formal information in months. It seems like we might get a next-gen update by this year after all, given the additional lines of code that were found in the game’s files from the most recent patch.

Since the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, fans have clamoured for Apex Legends 120 FPS on next-generation consoles. A high frame rate upgrade to the well-like free-to-play battle game Respawn has been hint at several times by Respawn Entertainment. Thus, you might be wondering if Apex Legends has a graphics setting on consoles that is finally compatible with it if you have a TV that supports 120 FPS.
Respawn has added ‘Hardware XB5’ and ‘Hardware PS5’ to its lines of code in the game in addition to all of the hardware that Apex Legends is compatible with. This suggests that Sony and Microsoft are optimising the game for the new systems.
Does the console version of Apex Legends have a 120 FPS mode?
On the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S, Apex Legends still does not support 120 FPS. For top-tier systems, the game is still stuck at 60 frames per second right now. This contrasts with Apex Legends for PC, which does support 120 FPS. Given that the game supports crossplay across PC and consoles, as you might expect.
This has been a sticking point for many gamers. Although the game tries to make up for this by integrating a built-in aim help mechanism for the console version, console players claim that they are at a significant disadvantage versus PC gamers.
Fans continue to clamour for a console update with 120 frames per second. Why it hasn’t happen yet is a question pose on Reddit on February 7, 2023, especially given that other console games like Borderlands 3, Modern Warfare 2, Fortnite, and Overwatch 2 are all capable of operating at 120 FPS.
The last time the developer mentioned “120hz gameplay” was in a post regarding the Warriors Collection Event in March 2022. We can only assume that this indicates Respawn is still engage in the project.
What can we anticipate from the Apex Legends next-generation update?
A 120 FPS improvement is in the works and will be available by the end of 2021, the Respawn Team Director said in a Q&A earlier this year. Respawn has been quiet lately, but with the most recent leaks becoming public, we may anticipate an update by the end of the month. The last development update we got was in September 2021, and the studio’s Director of Communications said at the time that it was still on schedule.
The new frame-rate enhancements will be available for PlayStation 5 Digital and PlayStation 5, but thus yet, only Series X of the new Microsoft Xbox consoles has been confirm. There is currently no official confirmation on the console, therefore it is unknown if the Series S will be able to run the game at 120 frames per second.
