It was reported last week that we’d see the first Battle Pass release on March 12th along with new legend, Octane and new details on Season 1 for Apex.. Community Manager, Jay Frechette commented on all the leaks and datamining of Apex Legends that has been going around.
“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.”
It’s not surprising that some of the things found in the coding is old as we talked about with the potential hoverbike Vehicle that didn’t seem to be finished. The C.A.R. SMG was one of the other weapon leaks which is a beloved gun in Titanfall 1 & 2. The one leak with ten new legends does seem legit so far as it had Octane listed in it. You can see the ten potential new legends coming to Apex Legends here.
Respawn had stated in a previous community update that they are continuing their fight against cheaters on PC. They’ve banned over 355 thousand cheaters so far and the number continues to grow.
We should expect Season 1, the Battle Pass, and Octane to release this month at some point.
