Apex Legends Devs Warns Fans About The Accuracy Of Datamined Info
Humans are curious beings by nature. And, after being caught off-guard by the unexpected launch of Apex Legends last month, the gaming community has taken it upon themselves to find out what’s going on behind the scenes in Electronic Arts’ battle royale shooter. All it takes is a little knowledge about source codes, databases, and data files and you can practically dig up a truck-load of information about a game. Respawn Entertainment, however, warns fans about the reliability of datamined information in a recent Reddit post.
“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.”
Respawn published the post in response to speculation and rumors floating around about Season 1, a new Legend, and Battle Pass which were accidentally leaked through the Origin client. “We’ll be providing details on Season 1, Battle Pass, and the next Legend very soon. It’s not coming out today,” says Respawn. “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.”
Don't worry we'll let you know as soon as we hear anything from EA or Respawn. On the other hand, a little speculation never hurt anybody. Feel free to speculate as much as you want in the comments section below.
