Today Respawn acknowledged a potential leaks, one of which was seen on the Origin store. The community manager, Jay Frechette, released a statement explaining what to actually expect.
In the updated Reddit post, Frechette did say there was an “unintentional update about Season 1.” This confirms the leak of a new Legend, Octane, who was seen on the Origin site.
He also addressed the datamining, reminding players they shouldn’t always believe what they see and hear.
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.
He also noted that the Respawn team will provide details for Season 1, it’s Battle Pass and the next Legend, very soon. However, it was clarified that would not be today.
We’ll be providing details on Season 1, Battle Pass, and the next Legend very soon. It’s not coming out today.
Alongside the leak of Octane, the Origin site also mentioned new weapons, loot and a battle pass price of 950 Apex Coins (around $10). Hopefully Respawn will release official details soon and get rid of the guessing game.
