Respawn Entertainment employees have had to shut down the rumors of "Asset Failed to Load" posts multiple times as players are desperate for any knowledge of Season 4.
It started when players were loading screens in-game or browsing the shop. Some assets had a warning screen instead of the intended item, and many thought this was a clever teaser for Season 4. Teasers for the season have reported Hammond Robotics broken into multiple times, leading some players to believe Apex Legends itself had been hijacked.
Respawn game designer and Reddit user u/SpamminBandies debunked the fan theories Friday.
"It's seriously just the fallback image when the CDN image doesn't load," he wrote on Reddit. "I made the image based on some parts of the old crypto tease. Nothing to see here."
Despite the small setback, fans have plenty to be excited for with Revenant. His kit is unique in Apex Legends, and it should give players something different to play. Plus, fans will be able to return to King's Canyon during the second half of Season 4.
The new season of Apex Legends arrives Feb. 4.
