Yesterday, Respawn rolled out an update in Apex Legends that removed the Olympus from the current map rotation.

It's been a rough few weeks for Apex fans lately, after battling against numerous issues from bugs to server connection drops. Players have been reporting all sorts of issues that meant that many couldn't even hop into a game, such as an "Engine Error - UI Images Ran Out of Room" pop-up.

As it turns out, the root of the problem seemed to lie with the Olympus map. The only way to fix the issues, it seems, is to take the map out of rotation completely.

Respawn Removes Olympus Map From Rotation

As of Jan. 19, Respawn has taken Olympus out of the map rotation. In a statement, the studio said, "We've gone ahead pushed out a playlist update that removes Olympus from rotation and replaces it with World's Edge. This will allow us to continue to work on the issue without impacting gameplay."

At the time of writing, there's no indication of when Olympus will be back. Players hoping to drop into their favorite battleground should keep an eye on Respawn's support pages for an indication of its return.

For now, World's Edge will take its place in the rotation, giving Respawn time to fix the various issues taking over the other map.
