Apex Legends: Respawn Working on Crashes and Cheating, But Not Reconnects

Game development is a tricky beast - regardless if we are talking about small indie titles or breakthrough AAA successes like Apex Legends by developer Respawn Entertainment and EA.

Games analyst Piers Harding-Rolls from IHS Markit told the BBC that cheating on the Windows PC version games is more common because it is easier to download a cheat application. "We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players". "We're going to have to be pretty secretive about our plans".

Respawn Entertainment said it meant to be "secretive" about its plans to combat cheating, so as not to forewarn players trying to break the rules. With more than 50 million players already and its popularity only continuing to rise, it's no surprise that Apex Legends cheats have become increasingly commonplace. Specifically, one situation that isn't uncommon is that players will attempt to communicate which of the game's characters they want to play as, and if someone picks that legend first, they'll disconnect.

Solutions won't happen right away but we're on it.

For game stability, Respawn will be hosting representatives from AMD in the coming week and working with them to improve PC client stability. Hopefully, that and more will fix a lot of crashes players are experiencing and Respawn will continue working with other partners to continue to make Apex Legends as smooth as possible. Also outside the metaphor they eat poo, irl. Respawn say it would be prone to abuse, and they "believe the resources needed to build, test, and release it are better spent focused on fixing stability issues so that the feature isn't necessary".

"If this could be fixed by spending money on faster/more servers we would do it, but unfortunately there is no silver bullet on this one", Respawn community manager Jay Frechette wrote.

So there is a chance we will see a massive new update go live tonight, containing both a new character and the Battle Pass.

Octane is expected to be the next character released by Respawn for Apex Legends on PS4, Xbox and PC.
