Prior to EA Play 2019, Respawn Entertainment confirmed that we could expect to see an array of different details revealed regarding the next addition to Apex Legends. This event is now upon us, meaning we now have a much more in-depth look as to what’s on the horizon. Check out the Apex Legends Season 2 trailer, release date, new weapon, next character and more below.
Apex Legends Season 2 has been highly anticipated for a while now, despite Respawn’s revenue dropping by a significant amount. While it may not be as awaited to the same extent of Season 1, it has certainly kept many fans interested.
Apex Legends Wattson – 10th Legend
Back in March, Respawn introduced the game’s very first post-launch character called ‘Octane’. This wasn’t kept a secret prior to its launch, and the next one hasn’t been either.
Now, as recently confirmed, Wattson will be the next character to release in Apex Legends. While this has been heavily rumored for a while now, it certainly doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
In fact, the official Twitter account provided a first look at the character only recently, courtesy of a glimpse at the end of a video. It didn’t necessarily confirm Wattson would be the next addition to the title, however.

Apex Legends Season 2 Release Date
Although Respawn has provided a rough release period for Apex Legends Season 2. The exact time of arrival remained a mystery, however.
Alongside the announcement of the next character, Respawn has also confirmed when Season 2 would be releasing. The new season will officially be coming July 2nd, as announced during EA play 2019.
Ranked mode will also be coming to Apex Legends. While this was leaked via the in-game files a while ago, this decision appears to have been in the making for a long time.
The levels go from Bronze all the way up to Apex Predator.
Respawn has also confirmed that a new weapon is on the horizon. The previously leaked l-Star weapon will also release on July 2nd.
What to Expect
In addition to the arrival of Wattson, Apex Legends Season 2 will also introduce an array of other aspects. Like always, we can expect to see new loot and a whole host of goods up for grabs via the Battle Pass.
