The Control LTM is being removed from Apex Legends as Respawn takes some time to tweak a few things.

The 9-vs-9 respawn mode introduced in Season 12, which pits teams against each other as they look to capture three control points on the map, has proven pretty popular with players both as an aside from the battle royale and as a way to warm up. However, some issues have surfaced that developers plan to fix, such as spawn.

As the limited-time mode tag suggests, Control isn’t a permanent addition like Arenas and was ultimately going to be put back on the shelf. With its success though, developers have confirmed that Control's return is imminent.

Multiple members of the Respawn team have confirmed that Control will be returning in Season 12 as a part of another event, given that there are more badges in the works. For now, it will be removed from the game to fix various issues.

Respawn have yet to confirm a return date for Control, however, we do know that it is more likely to arrive as a part of the Unshackled event, rather than the Warriors event, as that was the later of the two on the Season 12 roadmap.

Stay tuned for updates on a confirmed return date for the popular Apex game mode as news is released.
