Apex Legends’ data miners are giving away information about the upcoming Season 12 seasons, and one possible change that is now being tested is the option to host larger private games.

Apex Legends data miner GarretLeaks has revealed data that appears to show a new maximum of 100 players or 100 teams in private games. That’s more than the 60 players found in a standard Apex Legends match.

This information has not been confirmed and the data mine shows that the potential large matches are only being tested for now.

Gamers familiar with Storm Point will know that not only is the map big, it is actually “Apex Legends’ largest map to date, about 15% larger than World’s Edge, our previous map size record holder”. That’s according to an official description from Respawn Entertainment.

At this size, 100 player matches could easily fit and play well on Storm Point, adding 40 more players to the match. Apex Legends are currently the smallest among the best battle royales; Fortnite runs 100-player matches and Call of Duty: Warzone can hold up to 150 players.

Players were looking for 100 player matches that could make playing on maps like Storm Point even more fun. But not until October, Apex Legends Design Director Jason McCord tweeted that respawn would likely stick to 60-player lobbies.

“We think the game is balanced for 60 players and optimized for 60 players,” he wrote. “And our cards are made for 60 players.”

Now that Apex has Storm Point as a new and bigger map, it’s possible that the mindset of Respawn Entertainment has changed over 100-player lobbies. For now we have to wait and see.
