Respawn has said not to expect news on the Apex Legends battle pass today and to take recent datamines with a grain of salt.

Respawn Entertainment has released a statement regarding the recent Apex Legends datamine and the “unintentional update” regarding the battle pass on Origin.

The studio said on the game’s subreddit it would provide details on the Season One battle pass “very soon,” but not today.

As for the datamining, here’s what the studio had to say:

“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.”

Earlier today the Origin store went live with a Apex Legends battle pass splash image before pulling it quick sticks. This came after dataminers discovered what was assumed to be 10 leaked legends coming to the game.
