Following leaks, rumors, and some mistakes – Respawn Entertainment has decided to speak to the community directly regarding the release of Season, the Battle Pass, and new Legends.
In a post to Reddit titled “Some Clarity Around Datamining and Season 1” Respawn addressed the dataming and “unintentional update” from Origin that led many to believe today was the day.
To confirm it was unintentional, the post goes on to state while it is coming soon, “it’s not coming out today.“
With so many leaks regarding game modes, Legends, weapons, and more, Respawn also stated that “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.” Many of the leaks are from data that may have been left in from previously tried or closed projects according to the post. They further drive the point home that “this stuff by no means confirms that it’ll ever come out.“
While fans have been quick to jump on and get worked up over leaks, Respawn has sought to calm the masses and ensure them that while content is on its way, it may not be the content they think.
The Battle Pass while not releasing today is still expected within the next week or two as March is half way through.

So between the datamining and the unintentional update about Season 1 on Origin today, there’s been a lot of speculation and confusion so we wanted to give some clarity:
- 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.
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.”
