We know Vantage has only just joined the Apex Games – and that the Apex Legends Season 15 release date is still a little ways out – but, Apex Legends fans are already discussing the next playable character coming to Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play shooter and there’s some contention as to who it might be. Following the revelation that Apex Legends’ Maggie stole abilities designed for another legend way back in February 2022, it looks like the lost legend known as Husaria is back – well, it looks like they could be back.
Apex Legends fan and data miner ‘ABAxStorm’ has highlighted a new folder in the battle royale shooter’s game files related to Husaria – a long-lost leaked legend that, as we mentioned above, seems to have been adapted into Season 13’s Maggie. However, this folder interestingly does suggest that Husaria may actually be their own Apex Legends character in the future – as this file folder is found among other files and folders for all the other already-established legends, maggie included.
Of course, it’s worth taking this with a grain of salt. However, it’s certainly raising some questions as to who we’re going to see included in Apex Legends’ Season 15 update – when it drops.
As you can see below, the leak itself doesn’t offer much in the way of additional information. On top of that, the Apex Legends fans in the comments section have been quick to point out that another leaked character, Catalyst, would be a much better fit for Apex Legends’ Season 15 update when you consider other leaked details – such as a moon-based map.
Catalyst is also another name that appeared in the major set of Apex Legends character leaks from earlier in the year – so, they’re also a likely candidate for next season’s new face.
However, that isn’t to say Husaria would make a fine legend in their own right. However, her introduction does seem unlikely given the fact that Maggie’s abilities share a striking resemblance to what we know of a leaked kit for Husaria. Of course, these things can change drastically over time and Respawn Entertainment might like the character enough to want to bring them into the Apex Games one way or another, but it’s unlikely.
So, what does that mean for this unusual Apex Legends file folder? Well, it could very-well be another Forge-like situation where one legend is teased and then another is added – a bait-and-switch type situation to keep us on our toes. However, it could also just be a temporary folder name used to throw leakers, data miners, and fans off. At the moment, we just don’t know for sure.
What we do know for sure is that Apex Legends is one of the best battle royale games out there right now and whether we get Husaria, Catalyst, or someone completely different, they’re going to find a nice spot somewhere in our Apex Legends tier list – and our hearts, like Vantage.
