Respawn officially responded to Apex Legends data mines leaks and Season 1 release date in a Reddit post and told fans not to treat rumors as “as a source of truth”.
There have been quite a few rumors circulating on the webs that the season 1 of Apex Legends would launch today. These rumors were a combination of updates provided by Apex Legends and data mining leaks by fans. EA’s Origin service on PC posted an update that revealed a bevy of information about season 1, the Battle Pass, an upcoming Legend named Octane, and more.
Community Manager at Respawn Entertainment, Jay Fresh posted on Apex Legends’ official Reddit thread. He gave “Some Clarity Around Datamining and Season 1” and addressed several rumors regarding Apex Legends.
Jay Fresh stated:
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.
Now it is very likely that we will not get to see the supposed legend called “Octane”. Jay Fresh further elaborated:
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.
Whether or not we’ll get to see Octane anytime soon is yet to be determined but we’ll keep you posted regarding all Apex Legend news right here.
Apex Legends is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
