There is a bit of bad news for those who were looking forward to solo and duo modes in Apex Legends. Dataminers have revealed that developers have taken the code out of the files which previously hinted towards the two modes making their way to the game.
Apex Legends has done a tremendous job at attracting a devoted fan base. The game has grown immensely since the day of the release. The free to play expect of it has also helped with the insane traffic to the game. However, many of the players have asked for a Solo mode and a duo mode as the game only offers squad. This can be a bit problematic for those who don’t like playing with random people.
Around a month ago there were some leaks by dataminers that hinted towards the possibility of a solo and a duo mode coming to the game. However, according to recent datamining it seems that the devs may not have any such plans after all.
