In an update published on Twitter this past Friday, developer Respawn Entertainment acknowledged the server issues Apex Legends has had as of late. However, things won’t go back to normal for a few days.
“Despite improvements made 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,” reads the announcement.
“We’ll extend the current ranked split by one week — that update will go live Monday.”
The server issues affect all platforms Apex Legends is available on, including consoles and PC.
As VG247 notes, the issues seemingly began when Respawn rolled out the game’s latest update. It included the Evolution event, which itself included new skins and changes to Rampart.
Also, the update was supposed to address the tap-strafing mechanic. However, Respawn pulled the fix from the update and said it needed more time to make sure the fix didn’t interfere with other movement mechanics.
Apex Legends is available as a free download on PlayStation consoles, Xbox consoles, the Nintendo Switch, and PC. Respawn previously announced the game will also launch on iOS and Android.
