Apex Legends players will have to wait until E3 next month to learn more about the game's upcoming second season.
EA said that the publisher has "big and robust plans" for new content in the game. The details will be revealed at the EA Play conference on June 7. This event will be taking place at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. It will be broadcast live for fans to check out online if they can't be there in person.
“We’re now very focused on delivering for this massive global community with a long-term live service, including new seasons with more robust Battle Pass content, new legends, and exciting evolutions to the in-game environment,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said.
These changes will most likely begin near the end of June, when EA's current financial quarter ends.
While new legends and environment updates sound exciting, the Apex Legends community has been consistently demanding that Respawn Entertainment focus on addressing existing bugs. Some of the game's current bugs include frequent crashes and game-breaking audio errors.
EA stated that it recognizes that the battle royale's rapid growth since February has consistently caused issues for developer Respawn Entertainment. The company was allegedly required to learn brand new things on the fly regarding matchmaking, content creation, and anti-cheating measures in order to keep the game functioning properly for its surging number of players.
EA is also moving forward with a mobile version of Apex Legends. The publisher revealed that the mobile game is in "advanced negotiations."
Leading up to the second season's reveal, players can expect a new legend to arrive near the end of the current season. This will bring the current legend roster count up to 10. This information led data miners to discover the possibiliy of nine new legends. Their names include Crypto, Jericho, Skunner, and Wattson, who may have an ability called the Tesla Trap.
