Electronic Arts confirmed during its latest earnings call that details on Apex Legends Season 2 (which will release for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One) are coming at E3 2019. When exactly can you anticipate this news? Mark your calendars as EA will reveal Season 2 info on June 7th during the EA Play conference taking place inside LA’s Hollywood Palladium. These content additions are part of EA’s “big and robust plans” for Apex Legends, setting the tone for what gamers can expect from the title moving forward.
EA says the second season of Apex Legends will kick off around its next quarterly fiscal end—which is June 30th. Looks like we won’t be waiting long to get our hands on the new content rolling out in Apex Legends’ second season. Season 2 is expected to include a new Battle Pass, new character(s), new weapons, and new loot.
I’m anticipating the next major character will be a female hero called Wattson. This is based on rumours and reports surrounding the alleged Legend, with sources saying her powers will play into the “watt” part of her name. Wattson is said to possess electric gadgets of some sort. She sounds like a strong follow up to the daredevil Octane who debuted in Apex Legends Season 1. That is, of course, provided the rumours are true. Should EA prioritize another Legend for Season 2, Wattson may still appear down the road. Popular Twitch streamer Shroud claims to have tried Wattson, lending some credibility to the recent reports.
As for plans beyond the second season of Apex Legends, EA has confirmed that it has entered “advanced negotiations” to bring the game to mobile devices. No further details were offered, but Apex Legends following Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds into the mobile space makes logical business sense. Mobile is much larger than the PC and home console markets, and the move could help Respawn expend into the mobile-centric Asian market.
