For those fans who are looking for something new in Apex Legends, you may have some good information in store. Respawn Entertainment, the developers of Apex Legends, may be making an overhaul of their battle royale map. While the developer hasn't made an official announcements, a new job listing for a level designer may indicate that a new map is currently in the works. According to the listing, Respawn is looking for someone to "create and own large scale multiplayer maps iterating through gameplay blockouts in a live playtest environment." The candidate should also be "forward-thinking and pro-active in terms of finding ways to improve the players' experience through map design." The job was posted on May 19th.
Job Listings like these a lot of the times indicate what a game publisher is looking to make. While developers and publishers try their hardest to maintain as much secrecy as possible, the internet has made it much easier for gamers to speculate and draw conclusions as compared to previous generations. Given how recent the job vacancy was listed, and the fact that the position doesn't seem to have been filled yet, means that a new Apex Legends map might not see release for some time. Regardless, players will be happy to know that Respawn seems to be hard at work building something new.
Season 5 of Apex Legends launched on May 12th, but with that new update, there was no new map. There are plenty of planets that Respawn could choose from for a new location, but it's impossible to guess what might appear next. Recently, Respawn made changes to the Mastiff shotgun, by making its spawn rate less frequent. At this point, it's anyones guess as to what will be next, but this is a good glimpse at what the future holds.
