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.

There's nothing here to indicate that Season 1 has been delayed past its original "March" release date, so at this point, I think it's still safe to say we'll see it in a few weeks.

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."
