A new leak from Apex Legends dataminer ‘That1MiningGuy’ gave fans a full look at Revenant, after the Legend was noticeably absent from the Season 4 dev stream on January 23.

After the events of Season 3, mainly the Shadowfall LTM co-starring the mysterious mech and the mounting leaks, fans of the battle royale were sure that Revenant was next in line to be released into the Apex Games.

But players were surprised when the biggest reveal was that Forge would actually be headlining the launch of Season 4 – that is until new clues surfaced pointing towards a double-release including Revenant.

It seems like That1MiningGuy stumbled onto a featured image showcasing the Legend by changing a single character in the web address for an image asset on EA’s site.

The clerical leak resulted in a clear view of the red robot holding a metal skull in front of a backdrop with skyscrapers and a volcano.

This qualifies as a leak since it wasn’t officially unveiled by the devs, but the image is sourced directly from the EA site.

Now, evidence is piling up that Respawn might be planning a two-Legend release either on Season 4’s launch or throughout the events of the game’s new chapter.

Eagle-eyed Apex Legends fans spotted Revenant in the Season 4 web page, after people noticed that the Legend was noticeably absent from the new content coming to the game.

Fans noticed a distortion in the background image of Season 4’s official site, and a quick outline for the glitched portion of the image revealed a silhouette that’s unmistakably linked to the character.

The way Respawn has handled Legend releases so far has a few members of the community paranoid that the devs could be up to something.

“I'll probably end up being wrong but Forge came out of nowhere,” Apex loremaster ‘FrozenFroh’ said. “On the devstream, they use black and white for Forge's Season 4, but in the end it changes to RED... Revenant had the Halloween tease and other datamines I won't mention… I'm sure Forge is coming, but Revenant might be sooner than expected, and this might just be a double bamboozle.”

The community was thrilled to see that Respawn slipped in a cheeky reference to a character previously introduced in the Apex cannon, but it’s starting to look like players could get two Legends in the new season.
