Multi Latest Apex Legends Update Wiped All Their Progress


Staff member
Updates should be good but sometimes they are just catastrophic.

Shortly after the latest update for Apex Legends went live today, some players began reporting that they’d lost all of their progress in the game after logging back in. Respawn said on Twitter that it was looking into the issue, and would provide an update as soon as possible.

Apart from apparently breaking players’ save files, today’s 1.1 update didn’t change much. The biggest addition was a new option to immediately re-party with your squad from the previous match. Otherwise, the patch notes were pretty minimal. Yet after the update went live some players immediately took to the game’s subreddit to report that all of their unlocked characters and cosmetics had vanished.

In a follow-up tweet, Respawn suggested that players not make any purchases until it was able to get to the bottom of things.

“Until the issue has been resolved we recommend players do not buy or craft anything. We’ll continue to provide updates, along with an ETA, as information comes in,” the studio wrote.

Some players have decided to not let their game update until Respawn reports that the bug has been fixed, but it’s unclear if that will have any effect, since player progress is stored on the Apex Legends servers.

A major problem so hopefully it was resolved. Couldn't imagine losing all of my progress for any game and having to start again.
