Apex Legends dev confirms Seasons 5, 6, 7 and 8 already in development

Apex Legends players may still be enjoying the end of Season 4, but according to Respawn developers, there are already plans for Seasons 5, 6, 7, and 8. In fact, they might even include some Titanfall 2 content as well.

Apex’s fourth season has been a smash-hit so far. First, blood-soaked robot Revenant joined the battle royale’s extended roster. Mid-split, ranked switched to King’s Canyon. Now, World’s Edge is hosting Bloodhound’s Town Takeover.

Already, however, eyes are turning to the title’s fifth season. That’s not all Respawn has in the pipe right now though ⁠— according to design director Jason McCord, Apex’s devs are hard at work on the next three seasons beyond that too.

“We are updating the game as fast as we can. We literally can’t do anymore, and we have a lot of stuff planned that people want – but it takes a lot of time. There’s nothing to be done about that,” McCord said on Twitter on April 6.

McCord’s statement came after a deluge of comments from the Apex community on Twitter regarding how slow Respawn was often perceived as being when it came to huge changes to their ongoing Apex Legends franchise.

That perspective seems pretty unfair, the battle royale’s lead game designer said, especially when the dev team was “hard at work” constantly on new content. That includes future guns, legends, and planned balance changes.

“Stick with us…” McCord continued. He also revealed just how far ahead the devs are compared to the live game-state. “We are literally testing content for Season 5, 6, 7 and 8 regularly. We have LOTS coming, and aren’t going anywhere.”

Respawn teases more Titanfall content for Apex Legends

Of course, fans may be more interested in what is coming in those next four seasons, rather than just hearing they’re on the way. In that regard, Respawn has remained more quiet — that is, outside of a major Titanfall tease.

“We’re always bringing in stuff from the Titanfall universe,” Apex game director Chad Grenier and general manager Dusty Welch said on future content in an interview with Game Informer for the magazine’s 324th print issue.

“We built an awesome world in Titanfall and want to make sure we’re bringing that forward,” Grenier continued, before teasing a slice of new content. “I will say this ⁠— there could be a pleasant surprise for Titanfall fans in Season 5.”

There could well be a few answers to Grenier’s riddle. We’ve seen Prowlers, local to Titanfall’s Leviathan planet, arrive in Bloodhound’s Town Takeover already. There’s also rumors hardy South African pilot Blisk could be a future legend.

Months ago, leakers also dug up code suggesting Titanfall’s energy submachine gun the Volt could be arriving in Apex during the title’s fourth season. Instead, we got the Sentinel sniper, but the Volt SMG could still be on the horizon.

When will Apex’s future seasons actually launch?

With at least four more seasons on the horizon, it’s easy to get excited for all the brand-new content Apex players will get their hands on. What we have to remember, though, is Apex is quite slow with how they drop updates.

Season 5 is the easiest to predict. Season 4 is slated to finish on May 5 ⁠— just under a month away ⁠— meaning that’s when the fifth season should start.

Beyond that, it becomes a bit more of a guessing game. Season 1 ran from March 19 to June 18 (91 days), before Season 2 kicked off on July 2. Apex’s lengthy third season launched in October. Season 4 dropped February 4.

A standard season seems to last around 90 days, unless it lands across Christmas. Those last a little longer than the usual content run. That means the best guesses for when the next season drops are as follows:

Potential Apex season release dates

  • Fifth Season ⁠— May 5, 2020
  • Sixth Season ⁠— August, 2020
  • Seventh Season ⁠— November, 2020
  • Eighth Season ⁠— February, 2021

Taking Season 7’s potential Christmas extension into account, we’re looking at brand new Apex content all the way until the end of April 2021. It’s no small surprise, then, that McCord says the devs have “a lot coming” in the future.

Respawn is reportedly already hard at work polishing off Apex's fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth seasons.

For now though, we’re still right in the middle of Season 4. There’s still a month to go for the ranked split, as well as two weeks of Bloodhound’s titular event.

So, stay patient! Respawn has promised plenty more to come, and they’re sure to deliver ⁠— as more details on the next four Apex Legends seasons are revealed, you can be sure we’ll have all the info right here at Dexerto.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.
