After the recent flurry of Apex Legends Battle Pass, the developers themselves have responded to Respawn. On reddit they announced that the Battle Pass will not come today, March 12, and at the same time admonished the players.
What does Respawn say? In a post on reddit, the developers directly addressed the community and fans of Apex Legends. Already in the title it says: “A little clarity about the data mining and Season 1” It is about more official information:
- 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.
Specifically, it is about the recently occurred leak by Origin itself, through which the new Legend Octane and the price of the Battle Pass were apparently prematurely shown.
