Forge Will Not Be Joining Apex Legends in Season 4

We talked about the changes to Apex Legends with Season 4, one of them being a new hero, Forge. Well, he was inconvenienced and won't be able to make it.

When Respawn talked about the planned changes and additions to Apex Legends in the new season, one of them was a new hero, Jimmie "Forge" McCormick, a five-time Hyperfighting Federation champion. Which sounds cool, but he’s dead now.

Everything was going well, then Respawn dropped a new trailer in which you would guess they talk about Forge and his abilities, but no, he gets killed.

The reveal of Forge was a surprise because there was a bunch of teasers and leaks suggesting that the next hero is Revenant, the red robot that kills Forge.

Now if you go to the page that talks about Season 4, you will notice the picture of Forge is grayed out and it says “RIP Jimmie ‘Forge’ McCormick - Never defeated (except for that one time).

Interestingly, Drew McCoy, Respawn project lead, posted on his Twitter: “We spend insane amounts of time and energy to create cool surprises. Really sucks when someone wants internet points bad enough to ruin that.

It’s possible that Respawn just got really annoyed by the leaks, so they made Forge to make us forget about Revenant for a bit. We'll have to wait to see what Respawn has to say on it all.
