Apex Legends Season 3 was teased by publisher Electronic Arts during its recent financial call, with the company revealing it’s shaping up to be even bigger than the previous season and will drop during EA’s next fiscal quarter.
It also looks like Respawn is busy working on a new hero for the battle royale title, which many people think is Crypto.
Developer Respawn Entertainment previously said that there won’t be an Apex Legends 2, with the idea instead to continue supporting the first game for years to come.
Apex Legends was originally released for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One back in February, and attracted 25 million players in just one week. That figure swelled to 50 million in one month, and the game continues to attract 8-10 million players on a weekly basis.
Respawn was originally tipped to be working on a new Titanfall game prior to Apex Legends’ release, although sadly that looks like those plans have been put on ice for now. It’s a shame too, as Titanfall 2 was brilliant, and a third game would have been a welcome addition at this point.
The battle royale genre has really taken off in the past couple of years, thanks to titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The former remains not only the most popular battle royale games on the market, but one of the most popular video games on the planet right now.
