Someone's Attacking Hammond Robotics in the Apex Legends Universe

The hackers become the hacked.

The big Apex Legends reveal on Twitter might be all done and dusted, with new Legend Forge being brutally murdered during an interview, but there's still something going on. The Apex Legends Twitter account, in character as an in-game TV station, is still doling out information on Hammond Robotics.

The developments in Hammond Robotics started yesterday afternoon with the tweet below. The TV station, which is part of the Apex Legends universe, began reporting on developments surrounding Hammond Robotics, who were one of the big backers of the recently-deceased Forge, supplying the cyborg with numerous robotic enhancements.

In the Titanfall/Apex Legends shared universe, Hammond Robotics is one of the big, evil mega-corporations with far-reaching influences. They're backers of the IMC, the antagonistic forces of Titanfall 2, and they're generally not to be messed with. Except in recent developments, someone is definitely messing with them.

But who? The logical answer is "Revenant," a new character who murdered Forge during the recent interview. Maybe the character has some sort of vendetta against Hammond Robotics, and went after their golden boy Forge, and now their facilities, technology, and even employees.

Whatever the case, the Apex Legends Twitter account is definitely worth keeping an eye on, especially with the countdown to Season 4: Assimilation launching on February 4, which could likely introduce Revenant as the next Legend. Of course, there's always those that believe Forge isn't really dead, and used a body double instead, one of the more elaborate but still plausible theories going around right now.
