Apex Legends Data Mining Not "A Source of Truth", Says Respawn

  • Tyler “Ninja” Blevins Was Paid $1 Million to Promote Apex Legends by EA

While this success is largely down to the fluid gameplay crafted by Respawn Entertainment, publisher EA doubled down on influencers by reportedly paying Tyler "Ninja" Blevins $1 million to play the game. "Game is just fun!"

As with any improbably popular game, Apex Legends has already seen an influx of cheaters. The folks at Reuters were the first ones to find out about this deal and they were informed by one of their sources. I'd personally stream practically anything on Twitch for a fraction of that. This will surely surge even more when Apex Legends drops its Battle Pass sometime in the near future.

It's been teased for the better part of a month, but we're still yet to hear anything about the title's first season of incoming content - but that may be because an initially planned release date has been scrapped.


Apex Legends by Electronic Arts (EA) is one of the hottest battle royale themed games for consoles and PC right now.

"There's lots of stuff that has been datamined from Apex since launch and is swirling around the Internet", Respawn Entertainment Community Manager Jay "JayFresh" Frechette began in a statement on the /r/ApexLegends subreddit.

And even if that wasn't the case, for our money, Apex Legends - with its perfectly balanced mechanics, watertight controls, and ingenious Ping system - is already the best battle royale game now on the market. Either way, EA is sure to have no regrets in its decisions. If nothing else, the battle pass also might include additional credits to earn, allowing you to earn the character faster. On Apex Legends' release day, it doubled Fortnite's concurrent viewership numbers - pulling off a coup that, days earlier, nobody would've thought possible.
