While nothing has been officially confirmed regarding Agent 22, leaks have emerged we will once again be receiving another Initator, named Gekko. This leak comes as a surprise considering Riot had released Fade (controller) less than a year ago in mid 2022.
Unfortunately unlike previous agents, no data mined descriptions or clips of Gekko’s abilities have been leaked, so you’ll have to watch the show match to find out.
