Apex Legends Dev Says It Has Tons Of Content Coming For The Game


Besides performance issues, rampant cheating, audio glitches and a myriad of other glaring problems, there’s one key fault with Apex Legends that continues to hold it back more than any other. New content, or lack thereof, is a sticking point for many that, try as it might, Respawn just can’t seem to remedy. Off the back of its disappointing Season 1: Wild Frontier, fan disquiet over the matter has only grown louder and now, months later, the battle royale has found itself at a crossroads.

It’s true, of course, that Kings Canyon continues to record thousands if not millions of regular players, though with a fraction of that well-publicized 50 million figure still remaining, the hype has well and truly evaporated, leaving a core, dedicated fanbase. Respawn has reiterated several times over the last several weeks its intention to continue supporting Apex Legends, of course, but patience will only last so long.

Fortunately, we now know, by way of publisher EA, that Season 2 will be officially revealed at next month’s E3 with a release likely to come not long after, but that hasn’t stopped some from taking a cheeky jab at the studio’s perceived inaction. Fast food chain KFC’s offshoot gaming Twitter page (because why not?) has taken to getting in on the act with the image below, which has ultimately prompted the company’s Rayme Vinson to respond in kind.

“Dearest brand. We’ve got tons of stuff coming, but it takes a little time,” adding that “We can’t hype-fry or flash-flambe or crunch-inject or whatever it is you do to your tasty fried birdflesh. This gameplay is hand-crafted using old-world techniques. Eat some chicken, we’ll see you soon.”

Unsurprisingly, the good-natured back and forth has prompted onlookers to weigh-in on the discussion, many of which defend the developer for not resorting to Epic Games’ reported crunch culture.

What do you think, though? Are you in agreement that the Apex Legends creator should move at its own pace and not bow to pressure, or is it your view that battle royales, by their very nature, require frequent content updates to remain relevant? Let us know in the usual place below.
