Apex Legends have revealed a handful of skins coming in their crossover with clothing brand Chinatown Market, but the release of the skins has been delayed as the company rebrands.

Over the last few years, Fortnite set the bar for other battle royale games to follow when it comes to doing crossovers. Epic Games have done everything from in-game concerts to new skins, and beyond.

In the case of Apex Legends, crossovers have, so far, been limited. Other EA properties like Star Wars and Mass Effect have reared their heads, and you can get weapon charms for games that are made by Valve.

The next crossover was planned to be with LA-based fashion company Chinatown Market. On March 26, Apex revealed an upcoming Bloodhound “Sundown Desperado” skin and the event’s date: March 30.

The Chinatown Market crossover was first meant to be available on March 30, 2021, but has now been pushed back.

Chinatown Market, an LA-based streetwear brand inspired by New York City’s Chinatown neighborhood, was established in 2016. They have worked with gaming brands like FaZe Clan and NBA 2K in the past, so there is some gaming pedigree at hand. Trendy and known for a yellow smiley face, the brand’s Apex Legends skins are sure to be unique.

But, the brand said they are responding to feedback from the Asian American community and changing name, and as a result, the Apex crossover has been delayed.

There were four skins in total leaked for the Chinatown Market crossover, which will now be released later with changed designs after the rebrand: Bloodhound, Lifeline, Wraith and Mirage.
