Apex Legends was leaked almost a year ago by an alleged Respawn DevMarch 1, 2019
The reddit post features an old render of the Apex Legends map which is still quite similar to the version we have now.
I really hope this doesn’t happen
While some have doubted the legitimacy of the game.
This guy thinks it’s fake because of…..the “dinosaurs” we now see in the game which by the way, seems like they do not get damaged by the ring.
Others expressed interest.
The Reddit post was mostly dismissed by the community judging from the amount of comments however the original, one which was posted on /v/ was actually met with more reaction with people being curious on the specifics of the game.
Reddit sleuths assumed the one who leaked on /v/ was actually a Respawn employee testing the waters with the community reaction since he said “our maps”. This also lead people to believe that more maps will be coming to the game.
The leaked map looks almost identical to the original save for a few changes. The one used now is obviously more simplified.
And since the community did not receive the new BR game with more enthusiasm and some users dismissing the idea, Redditors assumed this is the reason why Respawn did not announce nor market the game.
