Apex Legends Season 7 Start Date Moved Up
Apex Legends Season 7 will begin a week earlier than originally scheduled, based on a change to the Season 6 battle pass introduced Wednesday by Respawn Entertainment. The developer will introduce a double XP event for the end of the season to make up for the lost time.
The Apex Legends Season 6 battle pass in-game menu says the pass will end Nov. 4. Prior to Wednesday, that date had been listed as Nov. 10, indicating Respawn Entertainment changed its plans for the length of the season.
Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier addressed the change on the game's subreddit Wednesday, apologizing for the poor communication.
"Agree the communication was bad," Grenier wrote. "We are discussing internally and will be better going forward. We hope to make up the gap with increased XP at the end of the season."
Grenier called the situation "a bit of a misstep on our part while trying to sort out some things with Fight or Fright and Season 7." He also said players could expect a "slight season 7 retune," as a result of the change.
Apex Legends social media accounts are currently teasing what appears to be the leaked Legend, Horizon, who is expected to arrive in Season 7.
