Respawn Entertainment has decided to stall things with Apex Legends. Apparently, the game is taking a slow step and will delay the start of Season 5, taken into consideration the pushback of the end date of Season 4. These sorts of delays are occurring not only in Apex Legends but also in other video games.
The pushback is for a whole week, which naturally means it will add 7 days to the starting date of Season 5. Now, Season 4 will finish on Tuesday, May 12, which usually overlaps with the beginning of Season 5.
This delay would support the adaptation of the new Battle Armor Event, which is scheduled to arrive on April 28 – May 12. According to Jason McCord, the extension of Apex Legends’ Season 4 is to allow players to reach the maximum Battle Pass level.
