This is the usual time that Respawn Entertainment releases updates for Apex Legends, and also the time that the previous Chaos Theory Collection Event began on March 9th.
Event End Date
Players will have exactly two weeks to enjoy the benefits of the new Collection Event, as it finishes on Tuesday, July 13.
That means there are only 14 days to unlock all the rewards on the event’s track and to nab the range of hot new items and skins.
Should you not be able to compete too much in the event window, however, Respawn confirms that cosmetics may return at a later date.
“Some event-specific cosmetics and rewards will return at a later date, but not all of them. Event items fall into these categories:
Event Exclusive – Can only be obtained during the specific event period in which they first appear. Will not be made available again in the future.
Battle Pass Exclusive – Can only be obtained during the specific event period in which they first appear by Battle Pass owners who reach the required level. Will not be made available again in the future.
Event Limited – May return in a future event or promotion.”
