It appears a Respawn Entertainment developer has dropped a not-so-subtle hint regarding the possible return of the Winter Express limited-time mode (LTM) in Apex Legends Season 15.

Winter Express is Apex Legends' go-to LTM for the holiday season, inviting players to board and capture the World’s Edge train decked out in Christmas decorations. A return this time around would mark the LTM's fourth straight year of returning to the fold for the holidays.

Will Winter Express LTM Return in Apex Legends Season 15?

Per Dexerto, when asked whether Winter Express will make a comeback during a Season 15 launch press event, Respawn senior design director Evan Nikolich replied, "Yes, there is a chance."

Of course, this is far from an official confirmation of the mode's return this year, but it certainly seems likely.

As touched on earlier, the Winter Express LTM has returned to the Apex Legends playlist rotation in each of the last three years, particularly with the Holo-Day Bashes in 2019 and 2020, and the Raiders Collection Event in 2021. It would certainly be interesting to see which of the two aforementioned Collection Events would get the nod this year.

Here are the dates of the three previously released Winter Express LTMs:

  • Dec. 12, 2019 – Jan 7., 2020
  • Dec. 1, 2020 – Jan. 4, 2021 
  • Dec. 7, 2021 – Dec. 27, 2021

If Winter Express were to make its return, it would land right in the middle of Apex Legends Season 15.

There could also certainly be a number of new twists introduced to shake up the LTM once again. Winter Express has typically only been played on World's Edge.


Apex Legends: Eclipse is set to begin on Nov. 1.
