A new leak of the Apex Legends has revealed a new mode that is reportedly coming to the game soon alongside the possible return of Skull Town. To be more specific, it looks like Respawn and EA are getting ready to add an Arena mode to the game, possibly for the seventh season or maybe even before the ending of the sixth season.
At this moment, it is unclear what this mode could possibly be, but it has the fans of the game talking and, moreover, speculating about the future of the game.
As for the leak itself, it comes was from the data miner of Apex Legends, Shrugtal, and via the files of the latest patch of the game, which added code to support the UI slots on the Play menu for a new Arena mode.
Shrugtal notes adding to this that it is possible that this could be a new smaller mode that would be ideal for warming up players and training before jumping into the game proper.

It has also been astutely pointed out by the data miner that Respawn has expressed its deep desire to bring the Skull Town back, and thus maybe these two things are related to each other.
