Self-Own: Respawn Accidentally Leaks Next Apex Legends Character

Apex Legends Season 17 is coming very soon, and we now know that it will feature a new Legend, thanks to a silly mistake by EA.

Well, isn’t this funny: Respawn Entertainment published an image of what seems to be Ballistic, the new playable character coming to Apex Legends Season 17 on May 9. Whoopsie!

New Apex Legends Character Leaked By Respawn

Respawn posted a new page about the Veiled Collection event, which is currently running in-game. This page featured the image above, which shows Ballistic in action. Ballistic has already been rumored to be the next legend for a while, this seems to be the confirmation that it will actually happen. The first leaks appeared around a year ago in a huge hack that targeted Respawn.

Apex Legends Season 17 will start on May 9, so we’ll have to wait until then to get to play Ballistic. Unless this was a double error, and it won’t be Ballistic after all… that would be even weirder…
