Since its release in 2019, Apex Legends has regularly welcomed new playable characters, who have brought a breath of fresh air to EA and Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play battle royale. Things may change in the future, with developers opting to slow down the rate at which new legends are added if they believe they have reached a “breaking point.”
Senior character designer Devan McGuire explained to Dexerto that as time passes and the number of characters on the Apex Legends roster grows, it becomes increasingly difficult to come up with new legends that are “unique, but not too much.” “strong or too specialized” McGuire believes the game may reach a “breaking point” where adding a new character at the start of a Season is no longer viable, especially given Respawn’s focus on balance and quality.
“We’re talking about whether or not the current pattern will continue, and it might not,” McGuire says. “But we don’t want to oversaturate the roster.”
