2. Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Dataminers have uncovered a ton of information about the upcoming season of Destiny 2 and all signs are pointing towards the return of the competitive PvP mode Trials of Osiris. According to the dataminers, the upcoming “Season of the Worthy” starts on March 9, and will launch after a series of events beginning with an Empyrean Foundation Event. It seems the dataminers’ predictions were spot on; Bungie just revealed that the “Empyrean Foundation rebuild effort” will launch next week.
3. Apex Legends Mobile It looks like Apex Legends may be coming to mobile after all. In May of last year, shortly after the release of the game, Respawn mentioned their desire to bring Apex Legends to mobile. It’s been nearly a year since then, and a quiet one at that, but now EA finally confirmed their commitment to mobile during yesterday's Q3 earnings report. There’s no word yet on any sort of timeline, but we should learn some more information during their Q4 earnings report in May.

The Animal Crossing-themed Switch will release on March 13, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons will launch one week later on March 20.
