The next season might be closer than you think
The first teasers for Apex Legends Season 5
The second split of the ranked season in Apex Legends is slowly coming to an end and the next big thing to follow it up with is Season 5. Respawn left us a trail to follow.
With The Old Ways event almost behind us, there’s yet again a few weeks before the next big thing in Apex Legends. Fans and data miners have already noticed some of the first clues left by the developers. Over the course of the last year, Respawn Entertainment have earned a reputation for leaving things in plain sight and it remains true to this day.

The Season 5 teaser
If you’ve been spending more time in World’s Edge than Kings Canyon you might have stumbled upon something interesting. In The Dome, you can find a device that resembles a phone and includes some interesting information. The clue was found by /u/HIRUZENandENMA and made public by the well-known data miner iLootGames.
Unless you pause it at the right moment it’s hard to see what exactly the device says. Shrugtal provided a close-up screenshot with the details.
We see the familiar name “Singh Labs” which were added as part of the Voidwalker event. The Labs expanded on Wraith’s backstory and portals. If Singh Labs are the entry point it could potentially lead to a new map, an anomaly or simply the next clue? Shrugtal seems to think that there will be a total of three devices in each game and once collected an event will be triggered on the map. The most obvious conclusion from this teaser is that players will be able to delve deeper into the underground facility. What’s really interesting is that Singh Labs are located in Kings Canyon while the clue itself is found on World’s Edge. It won’t be too far-fetched to have the two maps somehow combined by the portals in the facility. It could always be a completely new map too.
It’s all speculation at this point, but considering that the ranked season concludes on May 5, we should get more updates from Respawn in the weeks to follow. Previously iLootGames also hinted that the next legend to enter the roster will be Loba.
The miner also revealed some of the first animations for the character.
At this rate, we could expect another clue from Respawn which might also include some trace back to Loba. The last time we saw her was in Revenant’s trailer where she was still a little girl. That’s no longer the case
Season 5 will probably arrive in early may and knowing the developers they’ll probably have another Dev Stream right before the official launch. Stay tuned for more Apex Legends news.
