This isn't the only leak from March 11, though, as there have been suggestions from data miners that five new Apex Legends characters could soon be added to the free-to-play game. "Cheaters are crafty and we don't want them to see us coming", Respawn community manager Jay Frech wrote on reddit.

The developer's team at Respawn Entertainment are looking for a way to stop the spamming which is done during the character selection stage in Apex Legends.

Respawn said in a Reddit post on March 8 that Apex Legends now relies on Easy Anti-Cheat and that even though "the service works", it's not going to rest on its laurels.

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.

On a high level, Respawn said it has already begun communicating with anti-cheat experts within EA and outside of it.

Next week AMD will be at the studio and just like we did with Nvidia visit, we'll be working together to improve stability and performance on PC.

The battle royale genre has been successfully shaken up thanks to the arrival of Apex Legends, with Respawn's team shooter hitting 50 million players in its first month. However, there are no plans for this because it "opens up a lot of risk" for abuse, while Respawn said the efforts that would be required to release such a feature would take away from other, more pressing matters. Many players leave the game even before the match starts.

In Apex Legends, players play in three-player squads rather than as individuals. 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.
