For a while, fans thought Forge as going to be the next character added for Apex Legends Season 4, but he was subsequently killed off – or was he?

Respawn decided to channel their inner Mirage and deploy a bamboozle on the whole community by having Forge assassinated in a teaser video, which revealed Revenant to be the true new character.

Just as players finally started coming around to Forge and liking him as a legend, the rug was pulled out from under them.

Nobody is denying Revenant isn't a cool character, but it does seem a bit strange to start fleshing out a new one, who has their own datamined abilities, just to have them unceremoniously killed off.

Hold your ziplines though – Forge might not be dead according to some new evidence.

Apex Legends writer Tom Casiello, who has already dropped hints about Forge's fate, welcomed actor Darin De Paul to the team, revealing that he voices both Revenant and Forge. He then goes on a tangent hinting that Forge might not have been murdered in cold blood like players first thought.

"Hmmmm...guess that means we have the voice of Forge available to us anytime we want, doesn’t it," he said before going back and forth about the new character being deceased. He ended up leaving the door open to a return by saying he's "maybe" dead, which definitely has fans asking questions.

This revelation comes after a Respawn developer explicitly said the character was dead, so now we really don't know what to expect with Forge.

With each of the previous seasons, we've only seen one new character each time, but that doesn't necessarily mean we can't receive two in Season 4.

Revenant could still show up at the beginning and then maybe midway through, we could see Forge somehow pop up looking for revenge on this murderous robot.

The possibilities are near endless and considering how much of a narrative the developers are spinning out of this incident, we're sure we haven't seen the end of the short-lived character.

Apex Legends Season 4 kicks off February 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
