No new agent is coming to Apex Legends Season 16

According to new rumors in the community, the high-pace battle royale will be skipping new Agent addition in Apex Legends Season 16 for the first time.

When Apex Legends first launched in 2019, Respawn Entertainment gave players an initial roster of eight characters, six unlocked from the start and two more, Caustic and Mirage, unlockable.

Since then, battle royale has grown exponentially and there are currently 20 legends in the game.

Each new Season is marked with the arrival of a new Legend who instantly jumps to the top of the Meta and Pick Rate charts.

A few seasons ago there were rumors that Respawn would be slower when adding new characters, and the developers themselves say that they are aware of the danger of having too many legends.

Well, season 16 could be in line for just that kind of slowdown.

Apex Legends Season 16 new Agent

As mentioned, the rumor has been around for about a season, but picked up steam again in early December when trusted Apex leaker ThordanSmash stated that he “sincerely believes” Respawn won’t be adding a new character to the game season would be 16.

The YouTuber highlighted that claim again on December 18, saying there was “slight concern” about there not being a new legend, before adding a day later that Respawn were focused on buffs and nerfs for the current roster.

“No new legend, but legend buffs and nerfs including Lifeline buff with Care Package dropping faster,” he noted in his December 19 video as he went over a number of leaks and rumors surrounding Apex for 2023.

Not having a new Legend to play and deal with would probably worry some fans, but there have been many who have supported a season that resembles a healthy operation focused solely on fixing problems and rebalancing the game.

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens, as it is Respawn’s call at the end of the day, but the leaker has proven himself more than reliable in the past.
