The Legends set for release over the seven seasons of Apex Legends are already in testing, according to a pair of Respawn Entertainment developers.

"We always have a ton of exciting stuff in the works," Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier told GamesRadar in an interview featuring him and design director Jason McCord. "We do internal play tests every day, and we're testing new legends, map changes, and content all the way up through to season 12 now. So you know, there's a lot of really cool stuff in the works, but I obviously can't talk about the details!"

Neither designer revealed any information about the characters already in development, but they described how the team has streamlined its writing process season over season.

"For seasons one through three, we were writing new stories and content raelly close to the end, right before they launched," McCord said. "In season four and five, you started to see that we had a little more time to plan out something and we're just getting better and better at it."

Apex Legends Season 5, which stars the teleporting thief Loba, kicked off May 12. Respawn Entertainment has yet to reveal when the season will end, or when Season 6 will start, but based on the length of previous seasons it will likely wrap in mid- to late August.
