Much like Fortnite, which set the standard for battle royale games in many ways, Apex Legends will have a continuous schedule of new content broken up into “seasons”.

The first of these seasons is expected to kick off in March, but a precise date has not yet been announced by Respawn Entertainment, leaving fans to wonder whether the launch of Season One is days or weeks away.

During a recent stream, however, Shroud may well have let slip that the season could be starting almost immediately. During a stream on February 28, Shroud suggested that the update could arrive as soon as March 1, before  repeating rather suspiciously that he had “no knowledge.”

“I’m excited for the update for this game. Just wait, if it comes out tomorrow, it might, who knows, they might surprise you. I have no idea, I don’t know anything, I have no knowledge, I’ve never played this game before. Ever.”

It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Shroud does in fact have insider knowledge about the upcoming Apex Legends season. Not only was he one of several popular streamers invited to play the game before release, he even claims to have directly influenced the game by suggesting a change to the weapon recoil that Respawn Entertainment ultimately implemented.

It’s entirely possible, then, that Shroud’s relationship with the Apex developers has let him in on exactly when the first season should be expected.

While Respawn Entertainment haven’t gone into a huge amount of detail about Apex Legends’ first season, some details are known.

The season will introduce new weapons, new loot, new Legends, and a battle pass that will offer access to additional cosmetics and Apex Legends packs. Each season is expected to last approximately three months.

The road map for the first year of Apex Legends.

Leaks have revealed “Octane” as a future Legend, and he appears likely to be one of the first new additions to the game’s roster. The L-STAR light machine gun was also leaked alongside the Havoc rifle, which has already been added to the game, so the L-STAR can be expected to join along with the new season.

Apex Legends has already smashed several player records, passing 25 million players just a week after the game’s launch, and the addition of new content less than a month after the games launch is likely to help keep the game on the incredible trajectory it’s followed so far.
