Well, this is awkward. With TItanfall 2 hitting record numbers on PC, which was most likely buoyed by Apex Legends’ Legacy Season 9 new legend, it seems playter excitement has reached a fever pitch, as Apex L:egends down reports are still coming in even after close to an hour of the Season 9 patch’s availability!
Servers on consoles and PC are still down, though Respawn Entertainment is aware of it and cites user demand as the cause.
We're working through some service issues in @playapex at the moment due to high demand.
We're on top of it and will get players into games as quickly as we can!

It looks like some people are able to log in, though servers are getting melted, so don’t expect to have a great experience now. We’re monitoring the situation and will update the post as more info becomes available.
