The former landing location and fan favorite in Apex Legends known as Skull Town could possibly make a return sometime in the future. The development team at Respawn Entertainment has pointed out that they too would like to see the location return to the game one day, since its removal in Season 5.

As fans watched as one of their favorite parts of the map got taken away through Season 5's storyline, players began to lose hope of ever seeing Skull Town make a comeback. However, throughout some of Season 5's limited-time modes, the flames of some fans' hopes have begun to be restored.

In an interview with Gamasutra, head developer at Respawn Jason McCord said that the team kept putting off adding Skull Town back into Apex because they wanted it to return in a "healthy state" that would benefit everyone and the game as a whole. McCord understood that for some Apex players, Skull Town as a whole was simply their favorite part of the map.

The great news for Apex fans here is that the devs are on their side. They want to see the fun and chaotic location make its return and allow everyone to experience it once again, as much as the fans do. The question in everyone's mind: how do they add it back into the fold after removing in Season 5.
