Apex Legends goodies are now streaming all-new patches on Twitch

Apex Legends leaks have gotten weirder over the past few seasons and have now reached even more outrageous levels, with leakers brutally broadcasting hours of gameplay on unreleased versions of the game on Twitch.

Season 12 of Apex Legends was plagued with leaks revealing new weapons, legends, heirlooms, cosmetics, and just about anything else you could want to know.

It’s unclear why leaks have become more extreme in 2022, with previous seasons mostly limited to blurry screenshots or just data mining – where the files from the PC version of the game could be decrypted to show upcoming content.

Now a handful of leakers are simply posting high-res screenshots and videos of unreleased updates, ruining almost everything in the works for future events and seasons. Now they’re even streaming it on Twitch.

Apex Leaker Streams Leaks Directly on Twitch

On June 15, Twitch account “420AG420” went live for two hours where they streamed unreleased content early and showed off the 13.1 update (probably the next update coming to Apex Legends).

This account is almost certainly the ‘autismgaming420’ leaker, which has been the source of several insider leaks for Apex Legends for several seasons.

The leaker was brutally streaming for 2 hours with no removal.

Why has leaking become so common in Apex?

EA has been known to quickly remove leaked content with a DMCA notice in the past. But much of this leaked insider content is left untouched.

It also begs the question of how such content is leaked so freely, presumably from internal sources at the studio.

Before the Season 13 launch, Respawn actually responded to one of the big leaks, but didn’t seem to care.

“When it comes to things that leak, a lot of those things will usually never see the light of day because they’re things that we just try out. The game is full of things that we’re constantly trying, throwing, changing. Sometimes we even stop there specially for leaking stuff in, just to mess with people.”

However, if the constant leaking of new content continues, Respawn and EA could be seriously concerned about fueling engagement and excitement through official announcements.
