Apex Legends Season 12’s Release Time is Finally Explained

Apex Legends: Defiance, the actual name for Season 12, is out today, and while we know when it’ll be out, the creators haven’t formally confirmed it yet. That said, it’s a pretty safe assumption that Apex Legends Season 12 will be released at the same time as the previous seasons, so if you’ve forgotten those facts, we’re here to help.

The Apex Legends Season 12 release date will bring us a new legend with Mad Maggie, as well as a new ranked system and a “sabotaged” version of Olympus. We’re also getting a new 9v9 mode called Control, a series of login bonuses, and an array of balance changes.

One of the more noteworthy changes comes to Crypto, who can now use his drone without needing to control it. He’s also had some quality-of-life tweaks made to his kit. The devs explain that “the goal of these changes” is to make his kit more “accessible and engaging”, as his pick rate was fairly low. Caustic receives the other noteworthy change, as his Nox Gas Traps can now be broken after they’ve been deployed.

Now that you know what you’re getting, here’s when you can expect Apex Legends: Defiance to go live.


Based on previous season history, the Apex Legends: Defiance release time will be February 8 at 10am PST / 1pm EST / 6pm GMT. If we see a developer tweet something to the contrary, we’ll update, but for now you’re safe to expect the update to land at that time.

Once the release time comes, you’ve also got the battle pass. You can check out the trailer for that below.
