Apex Legends is experiencing a connection issue on all platforms, but acknowledged the situation and is working to correct it.
UPDATE 7:00 PM EST - Consoles are back! PC players still have a bit of waiting to do, though it might be worth trying for an occasional game.
We are seeing good recovery on consoles. PC is slowly coming back up as well but not out of the woods yet. We're continuing to work on it. Thanks for your patience :)— Apex Legends (@PlayApex) February 9, 2019
UPDATE 6:16 PM EST - The servers are starting to come back on, multiple Twitch streamers have been spotted getting back into matches. However, the performance is still spotty and disconnections are being reported mid-match.
Original story as follows.
The team announced they were looking into a unnamed issue that affected PC, Xbox and PS4.
We are currently investigating an issue that's affecting all platforms. Hang tight and sorry for the issue. We'll update when we have more.— Apex Legends (@PlayApex) February 9, 2019
