With Apex Legends hitting it big, dataminers have dug and dug a ton of info regarding this year’s surprise hit. While we’ve gotten news regarding new Legends, and new game modes set to come out soon, Respawn has chimed in on whether we should rely on these scraps of info or not.
Over on Reddit, Community Manager Jay Frechette has mentioned that the Apex Legends Battle Pass won’t be releasing today, and that news will be coming “very soon.” He also adds that the datamined files are from an old build, and some of it are from ideas that were scrapped by Respawn.
So between the datamining and the unintentional update about Season 1 on Origin today, there’s been a lot of speculation and confusion so we wanted to give some clarity:
- We’ll be providing details on Season 1, Battle Pass, and the next Legend very soon. It’s not coming out today.
- There’s lots of stuff that has been datamined from Apex since launch and is swirling around the Internet. We know this stuff is fun to dig up and speculate about, but you should not treat any of that info as a source of truth. There’s stuff in there that is very old, or things we’ve tried in the past and cut–remember our design process is to prototype and play lots of ideas–and some of it may be things we’re still building for Apex Legends. Finding this stuff by no means confirms that it’ll ever come out. At best you should treat any posts about this as a rumor and the real info will come from us when we’re ready to show off what’s coming next.
Thank you to everyone for staying patient through this and hang tight. We’re excited to get Season 1 kicked off and having you grinding on that Battle Pass with a new Legend to master soon.
