Apex Legends Data Mining Not "A Source of Truth", Says Respawn

Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass

Between the data mining and the unwanted update to Season 1 on Origin today, there was much speculation and confusion. A purported leak appears to show a new character named Octane, along with some other details about what's coming in the battle pass.

We would also guess that Respawn will avoid deploying such a big change during the weekend. Costs 10% health. Immune to slows while active.

But there has been another development that has led people to believe that March 12 was the actual release date after all.

"Everything you earn with the Battle Pass is yours to keep, even after the Season is over".

But there is still no telling what day the Apex Battle Pass will drop for players to buy. Dataminers have unveiled what looks like new characters for the battle royale.

"The Battle Pass is a seasonal system that rewards players with exclusive cosmetic items", the official website confirms.

Yes, Respawn could have taken away all the packs and coins from the exploit abusers, but that would have taken a ton of extra time and resources that the developer may not have wanted to dedicate to the issue.

After the recent flurry of Apex Legends Battle Pass. It's not coming out today.

Even as Respawn continues banning cheat users, it's hard to enforce those bans - since Apex Legends is free, there's little stopping players from simply signing up for a new account and starting all over. We know it's fun to dig up these things, but you should not treat such info as a source of truth. 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. Thank you to everyone for staying patient through this and hang tight.
