Respawn recently brought Duos back to Apex Legends as a permanent game mode, after running it as a temporary thing in a few times in 2019. The everyone-for-themselves Solos mode won’t be getting the same treatment, however, as Electronic Arts said today that it just doesn’t fit with the game’s underlying co-op elements.

Apex Legends is normally played in squads of three, but developers found that cutting that number to two in the Duos mode “had a positive effect on the game’s health in regards to queue times and gameplay systems in addition to reinforcing teamplay,” community manager EA_David explained. But the experience with Solos mode, which eliminates the cooperative framework entirely, was very different.
