Respawn plays down Apex Legends datamine leaks

"It's not coming out today", wrote Respawn community manager Jay Frechette on reddit. A new report claims that industry leader Tyler Blevins, better known as Ninja, was paid $1 million by EA to play and promote Apex Legends the day after its launch.

As with most major games - especially live service titles that are constantly updated with new content - Apex Legends was recently subject to dataminers looking to find out what might be next for one of the biggest games in the world.

The amount underlines the increasingly cut-throat fight for dominance of the free-to-play battle royale genre that, through Epic Games' global smash hit "Fortnite", has pushed major publishers like Electronic Arts to change how they do business.

In a message to fans, Respawn warned that not every leak is accurate, and that some discoveries will never make it into the game.

The promotional relationship wasn't a secret-his stream was labeled as an "Apex Legends partner"-but the amount involved is staggering, particularly given that the report suggests that it was exclusively for launch day". 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.Finding this stuff by no means confirms that it'll ever come out.

Apex developer Respawn Entertainment will likely patch this really soon, just like they did with the Twitch Prime exploit.

Thank you to everyone for staying patient through this and hang tight.

The Origin leak didn't tip a specific launch date for Octane, or the associated Season 1 Battle Pass for the game.
