Respawn Entertainment has extended Assimilation, the fourth season of Apex Legend by one more week. Instead of launching the game’s next chapter on May 5 as originally planned, Season 5 will debut on May 12.
“We’re extending Season 4 by one week, giving those who want to grind out their Battle Pass or try and hit that next level of Ranked a little more time to do so before Season 5 kicks off on May 12,” said Apex Legends Design Director Jason McCord.
For players who are disappointed about the delay of Season 5’s debut, Respawn is offering some solace by rolling out a brand new limited-time Battle Armor Event on April 28.
