Forge, the Apex Legends killed in the lead-up to Revenant's release in the game's fourth season, may return to the game, according to Apex Legends writer Tom Casiello.
When a fan asked Casiello via Twitter whether Respawn Entertainment planned to bring a character from the Voidwalker short back into the Apex Legends story, Casiello replied by saying no Legend is off the table for story developments.
"With an ever-growing cast (my anxiety dreams all take place in Season 29+ [scared emojis]), our team does our best to rotate which characters get the trailers/animated shorts/lore so no one Legend monopolizes the spotlight," Casiello wrote. "You can safely assume NO Legend's story is 'over' at the moment."
In follow-up tweets, Casiello specifically addressed Forge.
"Except Forge's. His story ended. Period," he wrote. Then, in a third tweet: "....maybe."
Respawn Entertainment introduced Forge as a red herring to confuse data miners and obscure Revenant as the Legend set to join the game's cast in Season 4. Design director Jason McCord previously described Forge as "super dead," so it's likely Casiello is just being cheeky and keeping players on their toes.
