Users of “Apex Legends” are anxiously awaiting the release of Season 1 Battle Pass, but the rumor that it’s being released on March 12 is false according to an employee of the company.
After several reported leaks and datamining speculation, the company felt the need to release a statement Tuesday to clarify some things. The statement didn’t reveal exactly when Season 1 was being released, other than to say there will be an update “very soon.”

Here’s the statement in full, via Reddit:
So between the datamining and the unintentional update about Season 1 on Origin today, there’s been a lot of speculation and confusion so we wanted to give some clarity:
We’ll be providing details on Season 1, Battle Pass, and the next Legend very soon. It’s not coming out today.
There’s lots of stuff that has been datamined from Apex since launch and is swirling around the Internet. We know this stuff is fun to dig up and speculate about, but you should not treat any of that info as a source of truth. There’s stuff in there that is very old, or things we’ve tried in the past and cut–remember our design process is to prototype and play lots of ideas–and some of it may be things we’re still building for Apex Legends. Finding this stuff by no means confirms that it’ll ever come out. At best you should treat any posts about this as a rumor and the real info will come from us when we’re ready to show off what’s coming next.
Thank you to everyone for staying patient through this and hang tight. We’re excited to get Season 1 kicked off and having you grinding on that Battle Pass with a new Legend to master soon.
The unintentional update on the Origin page he’s refrencing was posted by user Spliddo on Reddit.

The screenshot shows a new Legend, Octane, along with new weapons and “unique loot.” The price shows it’s worth 950 Apex coins, which would come out to be about $10. The statement didn’t really dispute any of the information provided in the unintentional release so those details could be true.
In the mean time, it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for Season 1’s release at some point this month.
