Apex Legends players have been looking forward to the announcement of the first Battle Pass since the game's shock launched and a new bug seems to suggest that it should be out by now.

It was widely expected among the game's online community that the first Battle Pass for the free-to-play title would land on March 12, following an accidental leak from Origin which seemed to announce its price and arrival. 

Disappointment soon set in, though, when Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment posted on Reddit that an announcement would be made sometime in the future.

Apex Legends players can't wait to get their hands on the Season 1 Battle Pass.

However, a new bug that can be seen in-game seems to show that the Battle Pass was indeed planned to launch on March 12 - or thereabouts. 

The bug, which can be seen in the short clip below, seems to show items appearing in Apex Packs that don't seem to be authorised yet.

Some fans are speculating that these items were being prepared to be added to the game ahead of the initial launch date of the Battle Pass, but were not set live due to a change in direction from the developer. 

Apex Legends data miner @Shrugtal claims this is further proof that the battle pass was scheduled to release on March 12, but was delayed.

There's still no word from Respawn that suggests that new content was planned to arrive on March 12, but now it's not only leaked information that seems to hint at it - as items that can't even be used yet are being handed out in packs.

Whenever there's an announcement on the official release of the Battle Pass for Apex Legends, we'll be the first to let you know. Until then, it seems to be a waiting game for fans.
