Respawn Might Have Some Things Cooking For Underserved Playstyles In Apex Legends

Mad Maggie is the latest addition to Apex Legends’ list of assault characters. But, Respawn Entertainment seems to have more in the works for other, less common playstyles in the future, explained gameplay engineer Chris Winder in a press conference earlier this month.

Respawn is “always looking towards what are those types of experiences that we’re not serving as much,” said Winder. “We’ve released a number of aggressive characters, so thinking now about servicing some of those other playstyles that are less served by some of our recent characters.”

One of those “underserved playstyles,” as Winder called it, is support legends. Apex only has two support characters, Lifeline and Loba. Only one of them can actually heal the team directly.

This doesn’t necessarily mean fans will get a supporting character next season. It usually takes 18 months for Respawn to fully develop a legend from its initial design to actual modeling, writing, voicing, and animating. However, Respawn is “always looking for those open spaces” in design, as Winder said, that other legends still haven’t taken up. And, with how few support legends there are in the game, this seems to be a direction the team will gravitate toward.
