Respawn Entertainment premiered a new Apex Legends Stories from the Outlands video on June 14, and players are convinced that leaked Legend Uplink featured in the latest cinematic.

Apex Legends players usually have a fair idea of the upcoming roster of Legends, with the likes of Newcastle, Fuse, and Mad Maggie all being leaked months before their arrival. Back in March, a massive Apex Legends leak revealed a ton of upcoming Legends.

Uplink was one of these unreleased Legends, and fans are convinced that he made a cameo in June 14’s ‘Family Business’ Stories from the Outlands.

The ‘Family Business’ Stories from the Outlands premiered on June 14, and it didn’t take long for Reddit user CrystalClown96 to notice a striking resemblance between Uplink and a character from the cinematic.

At around 1:50, the camera focuses on a medic who has the same spiked hair and headset as the leaked image of Uplink. With Uplink being a Support Legend similar to Lifeline and Respawn dropping teasers in the past, players are convinced this could be our first look at Uplink.

New Legends usually have a link to someone in the already existing roster, and it’s possible that Uplink would have a bone to pick with Lifeline’s mother and Octane’s father after they attempted to murder everyone in the field hospital.

Of course, it’s just as likely that Uplink didn’t feature in Stories from the Outlands. The similar hairstyle and headset could just be a coincidence, and there’s no guarantee that the leak showed Uplink’s finalized appearance.

We’re still a couple of months away from Apex Legends Season 14 which leakers claim will introduce Vantage, so we may not know if this is really Uplink for some time. But, check out the video embedded above and see what you think.
