Apex Legends Revenant Easter egg suggests two Legends are on the menu for season 4

After much speculation, Respawn Entertainment finally revealed Apex Legends season 4 (opens in new tab) in a new devstream last night, but a recently discovered secret (opens in new tab) hidden on Electronic Arts' website suggests the studio has plenty of other plans for the next chapter of its free-to-play battle royale. 

As is customary for each season, Respawn announced that a new Legend, Apex Legends Forge (opens in new tab), would be joining the arena when the new competitive period starts on February 4, which came as something of a shock to those expecting Revenant, the enigmatic robot who first appeared in the game's Halloween event (opens in new tab), to make his long awaited debut instead.

However, fans have now discovered further proof of Revenant's impending arrival on both the backend of EA's own website (opens in new tab) (which shows off his character model in full), in addition to a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo (opens in new tab) in the latest devstream, suggesting that the character may soon follow Forge's arrival to World's Edge sometime during Apex Legends season 4. 

Indeed, the upcoming season also marks the first anniversary for Respawn's hit shooter, suggesting it could be a particularly big one for the player base, and its designers were even teasing Revenant (opens in new tab) as early as October last year, via screenshots showing off new designs for the game's map layout. 

With that in mind, it's not crazy to assume the studio might buck the trend, and drop two new heroes at once next month. While neither Respawn or EA have said anything official just yet, I'd imagine we'll be hearing more from Revenant very, very soon.
