Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins Reportedly Paid $1M by EA to Stream Apex Legends

'They're just rumours, innit' say Apex Legends developers on datamining

But they have said, to paraphrase, "look these are rumours ok, you'll get your battle pass soon plz calm down".

Getty ImagesTyler Blevins, renowned Fornite streamer, was reported (Reuters) to have been paid $1 million (£750,000) to stream Apex Legends on launch.

Respawn will be "providing details on Season 1, Battle Pass, and the next Legend very soon", though encourage everyone to treat the rumours they're reading as exactly that. It's not coming out today.

As with most major games - especially live service titles that are constantly updated with new content - Apex Legends was recently subject to dataminers looking to find out what might be next for one of the biggest games in the world.

Within these game files are leaked items and changes that haven't made it into the game yet.

The unintentional update on the Origin page he's refrencing was posted by user Spliddo on Reddit. 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.

Rumours have been churning around data-mined discoveries in Apex Legends, only to be quashed last night by developers Respawn Entertainment.

The Origin leak didn't tip a specific launch date for Octane, or the associated Season 1 Battle Pass for the game.

One thing we can be nearly certain of is that Season 1 will coincide with the release of a brand new Legend called Octane.

"This was a really well coordinated poaching of the top influencers the likes of which has not been seen so far in esports", said Kevin Knocke, VP of ReKTGlobal, suggesting that EA had also roped in streamers better-known for playing other blockbusters like "Call of Duty" or "PUBG".
