Will Arenas be removed in Apex Legends Season 16?

Unfortunately, yes, the developers have decided to sunset Arenas, and it will be removed from Apex Legends game modes in Season 16. Arenas were added to the game back in Season 9, and it became quite popular then. However, the current state of Arenas is not meeting the goals the devs had in mind, so it will be replaced in Season 16. While there is no official news regarding Arenas returning later on, players can look forward to the new permanent modes playlist Mixtape in the upcoming season.
