A recent rumor is going around the Apex Legendscommunity, stating that the game developers will be adding a clan-like feature into the popular online shooter.
The rumor states that the new feature will be called 'clubs,' and function similarly to clans or guilds in other shooter titles. The rumor comes from a recent tweet by popular Apex Legends leaker, Shrugtal. This new update would be great, as it would encourage players to become more team-oriented in their play style. The introduction of 'clubs' would better encourage Apex players to discover and meet new players and help develop team skills. In the game's current state, team-play is still done, but it is admittedly a bit limited compared to other online shooters and this addition would make the game more encouraging of teamwork among players.

This information was found within Apex Legends' code, with many phrases such as'UIScript_ClubJoin', 'UIScript_ClubKick' and UIScript_ClubInvite' and much more. Shrugtal gives plenty of more information regarding the leak in his YouTube video, providing a good case for the potential leak.
Working on collecting all info possible on this upcoming 'Clubs' feature I found for Apex Legends.
Think like a Clan or Guild. Would actually make a lot of sense, reinforces that the game is meant to be played as a team.
Keep a eye out for a vid tomorrow.

This new feature would help make Apex Legends become a more team-friendly game by allowing players new and simpler ways of finding team members. 'Clubs' would come with their own names and clan tags according to the leak, and would also have join requirements including player account levels and rank badges. This would more easily allow players to find teammates with skill levels that more easily match themselves.
The leak also gave information of Club Member Ranks, with four different ranks found: Grunt, Captain, Admin, and Creator. Each of these ranks will likely have different permissions within their respective clubs, with Grunts having little to zero permissions and Creators likely holding the ability to kick other members and approve of new ones.
Shrugtal guesses that the update will either release alongside the upcoming Season 6, or later this year alongside the Switch port and Apex's Cross Play update which are both due to launch this fall. This would make sense, as the leaker also found that players will be able to find others through their universal ID numbers: this bit of information is interesting, as players show be able to find one another across all platforms, which goes hand-in-hand with the game's upcoming cross-play functionality.
