Apex Legends players have been experiencing a number of connectivity issues recently, and developer Respawn Entertainment has acknowledged the problem with a fix. However, issues still persist, which will be addressed with a future patch scheduled to be landing on September 22.
Respawn Entertainment revealed this information in a tweet on the official account. The developer mentioned that connectivity issues are three times higher than the original, which is a concern worth looking into. The developer also mentioned that it would be extending the current rank split by a week, possibly until these issues get resolved.
Respawn Entertainment has been the subject of many hacks and technical difficulties as of late. Titanfall has been plagued by hackers for a long time now, and Apex Legends recently got DDoSed for the very same reason. While hopes for fixing Titanfall are dampening by the day, Apex Legends should be playable again very soon.
Despite improvements today, we're still seeing roughly three times the normal rate of disconnect errors in @PlayApex, and a full return to normal may take until our next planned patch on Sept 22.
We'll extend the current ranked split by one week—that update will go live Monday.
