Forge is not coming back to Apex Legends, because he is “Super Dead”.
Jason McCord goes on to say this:
“Honestly, it started as a fun way to misdirect data miners who, at the time, felt like they had solved our next legend and had ruined our surprise,” McCord said. “We actually purposefully leaked fake concept art and details of Forge’s kit in patches, so there would be a bread crumb trail by the time we announced him. It’s pretty insane, really. I can’t think of any other game that has gone through such hijinks.”Jason McCord
After explaining his pleasureful experience on trolling Data Miners, he then slams the hammer on Theory-Crafters stating:
“Forge is super dead.”Jason McCord
