Apex Legends developers have changes planned for Horizon, according to Josh Medina, a producer for Respawn Entertainment.

Dr. Mary "Horizon" Somers has taken a backseat in Apex Legends as of late. The Scottish astrophysicist won't be receiving any buffs or nerfs within the next even patch for Genesis. Thanks to Medina, however, Horizon fans have a bit of renewed hope for their favorite "master of gravity."

Apex Legends' Horizon has Plans Behind the Scenes

Andre "Draynilla" Joseph, an Apex Legends Twitch streamer and member of SoaR Gaming, took to his Twitter profile to publish some thoughts on the next patch dropping on Tuesday, June 29. He expressed that he was "HELLA HYPED" for what Respawn has planned in Apex Legends.

"Honestly everything looks fire...All the bug fixes, changes, & THE REVENANT HEIRLOOM all look so dope!!" He wrote, "Good stuff Respawn I cant wait to play it all next week."

However, there were some cons. Draynilla lamented the way Respawn decided to treat Lifeline and, in a separate reply, the lack of love for Horizon.

"I miss my bouncy space lady," he wrote.

As usual, Apex Legends developers were quick to keep their players informed. Medina replied to Draynilla minutes after the tweet went live on Thursday, June 24, with some insider information about the "bouncy space lady" in question.

"She got stuff in the oven," Medina wrote—though he neglected to explain exactly what that "stuff" was.

This brief reply was likely for good reason as Horizon, indeed, appears to have some plans in motion at the time of writing. The next day, the official Apex Legends Twitter account dropped a five-minute animated short featuring the scientist working on the "marvel of modern science" designed by her colleague, Lillian Peck, where Horizon raised her son.

Horizon and Wattson appear to be working together to salvage the station before Ash, the representative of the Arena games, appears. The two engage in a brief argument after which Ash saves Horizon from falling debris and, following a short pause, commends the astrophysicist on her devotion. Strangest of all: Ash mentions Horizon's son, Newton, by name.

The short mention of her son seems to shake Horizon to her core. Wattson tries to console her, but, despite Horizon's best attempts to self-soothe, she still looks taken aback.

Players will have to wait and see what this could mean for the Genesis Collection Event.
