Apex Legends Season 5: Does Fortnite Delay Spell Trouble for Respawn? Release Date, New Character Loba, Crossplay & More
Fortnite’s upcoming season has just been pushed back until June – will Apex be in any trouble?
There have been questions of a new legend being raised after potentially being seen in the Season 4 trailer, especially now an Apex Legends data miner has released what look to be in-game animations for Loba, the rumoured next character.
However, we’re not here to discuss this.
Continue below for more information on the upcoming season.
Season 5 Release Date
On the whole, Apex Legends Seasons follow a much more definitive pattern than the likes of Fortnite and PUBG Mobile.
We typically see an Apex Season lasting exactly 3 months, and with Season 4 being kicked off on 4 February.
You can, therefore, expect Season 4 to draw to a close in early May, with Season 5 kicking off on 5 May 2020.
That is if it isn’t delayed until June like Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3.
New Character: Loba
The data miner found quite a lot in her files.
Loba’s default skin is likely to be a white, grey and gold outfit with wolf emblems on her shoulders (since Loba translates to ‘wolf’ in Spanish and Portuguese).
She also has a large device hooked to her belt loop that could be her jump pack.
In a recent interview with Game Informer magazine, the idea of cross-platform play was brought up to Respawn devs, and they provided a strange response:
“We are obviously big fans of playing our game — at work and in our free time — and we go home on a Friday or weekend and want to play with each other and we’re on different systems.”
“On a personal level, yes, we’d love to do that and party up on the weekends. I think it’s an important thing to get to.”
