It appears Respawn Entertainment has leaked its upcoming Legend and seasonal theme for Apex Legends Season 14.

The Apex Legends leak trail never seems to disappoint, and while Respawn has long been known to craft hints and teasers for its upcoming announcements, there have also been times like this where it seems content has been released earlier than intended.

Spoiler warning for the unconfirmed details ahead, of course.

As spotted by u/TheKzX on the r/ApexUncovered subreddit, it seems a Season 14 news post was mistakenly dropped in-game Friday. Titled "Watch 'Survive,'" the image shows what has long been rumored to be the next Legend, Vantage, as well as the season name "Apex Legends: Hunted."

The date Aug. 9 is also seemingly confirmed to be when Season 14 will drop, which is expected since that is also when Season 13 will come to an end.

The post has since been removed from game, but seems to have already all but confirmed that Vantage will indeed be the game's next Legend.

Back in March, a massive Apex Legends leak circulated online, first revealing Vantage along with an array of unreleased characters, weapons and new lore.

In May, data miners began to find cosmetics in the game's files that mentioned the name Vantage as well.

According to the aforementioned leaks, Vantage is described as a survivalist sniper Recon Legend with a kit that specializes in gathering information about the enemy before striking:

  • Sniper Kit (Passive): Tactical info available in ADS unarmed or any long-range scopes (Legend name, shield rarity, team size, and range).
  • Echo Launch (Tactical): Launch towards your winged companion, Echo. Order Echo by tapping Q. Launch to Echo by holding Q.
  • Mark to Kill (Ultimate): A custom rifle that scans enemies and boosts damage for Vantage and her squad. Damage doubles for Vantage on successive shots. The team gets a 15% bonus on marked targets.

Respawn has yet to acknowledge, or announce any details about Season 14, but did drop a fairly mysterious teaser Saturday.

Members of the Apex Legends community have yet to nail down the meaning of this latest teaser.
