Apex Legends Season 17 Release Date
Apex Legends follows a regular rhythm when releasing new updates and patches. It releases a new season after every 2-3 months. The new season, Apex Legends Season 17, will follow the same pattern and launch on May 9, 2023, at 10:00 AM PT (6 PM BST/ 1:00 PM ET / 7 PM CEST).
This will be a fairly significant update with lots of new features. But hopefully, we will be able to begin pre-downloading it 12-24 hours before it releases.
The previous season, Season 16, lasted a little less than three months, and Season 17 may follow the same pattern ending in July 2023.

Fortunately, Season 17 will bring a new character to the story. This latest addition will be named Ballistic. It is an Apex Arms Dealer.
