Whether it's demands for Pathfinder to finally get a Passive or significant matchmaking improvements, there are some heavily requested features for Apex Legends that get asked over and over again.

However, none of them even come close to the countless calls for cross-progression to be added to Respawn's battle royale.

The devs have made it clear multiple times that the feature is in development and on the way, but after waiting for so long, a lot of players have lost hope completely.

Despite this, a new leak may have reignited hope that cross-progression could come to Apex Legends in Season 19.

Apex Legends leak hints that cross-progression is coming

Reliable Apex Legends leaker KralRindo took to Twitter on September 19 to reveal that with the Harbingers Collection Event, Respawn had added cross-progression-related scripts to the files.

This follows previous cross-progression files that were added in Season 18 by the devs, suggesting they're preparing for its arrival.

Of course, these scripts provide no information on a potential release date, but with so much activity in the files related to the feature, it could mean good news is on the way.

This would be a landmark addition to the next seasonal update if the devs can pull it off, and would definitely leave some fans in disbelief that it finally arrived.

Unfortunately, this is the golden question that no one can answer at this point in time. While the new leaks are certainly a good sign, it's difficult for players to get their hopes up as they've been in the position before with cross-progression.

This isn't the first time files have been added to the backend and in those cases, cross-progression was never added.

Ultimately, we'll just have to wait for an official announcement from Respawn, but it's clear a lot of fans will have to see it to believe it.
