No Fill Coming In Season 8

Apex Legends has always been built a team-based game.

Solos has made an appearance in the game before, but only briefly, leaving team-based modes such as Duos and Trios as the only option if players want to jump into Apex.

Back in November 2020 during as Reddit AMA, Apex Design Director Jason McCord confirmed it was being tested and worked and that it would be coming in Season 8.

However, it won't be available at launch, and will instead be implemented later on.
