Apex Legends season 6 is arriving in less than a week. “Boosted” will introduce a new legend and a new weapon. But, a new map might not be the case.
The speculations of a new map started during the season 5 quest “The Broken Ghost.” The last part of the quest shows Ash from Titanfall 2. She mutters the words, “Welcome to Olympus,” and the hype for a new map went up.

Respawn clarifies Season 6 changes
The developers have sent a teaser email last June 12. The message contains promotional materials for the next season.
Instead, one particular line in the message talked about a “revamped map.”
This might mean that the World’s Edge will undergo some changes once again. Previous teasers pointed out that there are some sites on the map may change.
While running her own modding shop, Ramya Parekh (aka Rampart) built her rep in underground gauntlet circuits. But success has a way of making enemies.
Good thing she knows how to use all those fancy weapons she’s upgraded…😏 pic.twitter.com/GkgDGlqIfA

Apex Legends teaser are confusing at times
This email may be an attempt by Respawn to hide the fact that Olympus is coming.
Respawn is good at confusing its player base. This is evident during the Season 4 reveal of Revenant.
Leaks of “Forge” came out back in season 3. This is meant to confuse data miners and leakers on who the real Legend is.
The developers even made it to the point of creating a fake introduction video of Forge. Ultimately, Revenant killed Forge on the spot thus introducing him as the real legend.
That being said, Olympus may still be arriving next season. Apex Legends Boosted is just a few days away. All questions may be answered by then.
