Fans of Apex Legends are starving for new information about Season 1 and while Respawn Entertainment hasn’t said when the season is coming, we do know it’s coming in March.

Numerous leaks and datamines have revealed tidbits of information but fans are still waiting for the floodgates to officially be opened.

There was a lot of assumption by players in the community that Season 1 would be announced today and the hype train gained more steam when EA streamed Apex Legends.

No announcement came out of the stream despite practically every comment during the stream asking for some sort of information.

At one point, EA had to say there would be no official information given today, which was later stated again in a Reddit post.

“We’ll be providing details on Season 1, Battle Pass, and the next Legend very soon,” wrote Jayfresh_Respawn on Reddit. “It’s not coming out today.”

It might look like poor timing on Respawn and EA’s side of things by holding a live stream on the expected day of the new season.

However, it’s worth mentioning there has been no official announcement anything was coming today so it appears everyone was just a victim of their own hype.

This hasn’t stopped fans from voicing their displeasure across social media.

“My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined,” wrote Reddit user Elvenstar32, who was rewarded with two Reddit Silvers and three Reddit Golds for a good usage of that meme.

Many comments in the Reddit thread share the same sentiment, with some taking a joking manner like the above quote while others turn a bit hostile.

“You think they’d buy us dinner before fucking us…” wrote user Oteeksx, who has over 200 upvotes on the comment.

Other players shared their displeasure on Twitter.

We are still in the month of March which means the release window hasn’t been missed and fans should still feel confident that it’s coming out in the next couple of weeks.

Apex Legends adds Double XP to finish Battle Pass before Season 7

Respawn Entertainment are adding double XP to Apex Legends, so that players can complete their Season 6 Battle pass before Season 7 starts, after they shortened it by a week.

Season 7 was initially due to start on November 10, as the battle pass ‘days remaining’ had indicated for the majority of the current season.

However, only 3 weeks out, Respawn changed the date to November 4, unannounced, leaving players somewhat confused about the amount of time they had left to finish all their battle pass levels.

Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier apologized for the lack of communication on the matter, and assured players that they were working on a Double XP period to give players a boost and a chance to get the battle pass completed before it changes to Season 7.

When is Apex Legends Double XP?

The Double XP week is due to start on Thursday, October 29, at 10AM PT (1pm ET / 5pm GMT), and run until the end of the Season.

The exact start time for Apex Legends Season 7 is not confirmed yet, though the usual time is either 10AM or 8AM PT.

Grenier also previously said that there would be a slight ‘retune’ the Season 7 battle pass, but didn’t go into details about what exactly that would mean.

Season 7 starts on all platforms on November 4.
