Apex Legends, now over three years old, is on a roll of revolving seasons and events, trying to keep up with the playerbase’s thirst for content. Here’s a look back at the history of Apex Legends, and when every season and event began and ended.

As it becomes clear Apex Legends is a game to stay, it’s useful to have a record of its history, with EA even saying that they expect Apex to be a global franchise for at least a decade.

Each new season brings a new Legend to the Apex Games, as well as an assortment of other content, like maps, game modes, weapons, and cosmetic content. Here’s a rundown of the history of Apex Legends, and when each season started and ended.
