an apology for the
between some Respawn staff and gamers in discussing changes to the Iron Crown
event in Apex Legends
On Friday, we gave Apex fans an update on
how we were changing the Iron Crown event. Some of the team then joined a
discussion on Reddit, and things got to a pretty bad place. Some of our folks
crossed a line with their comments, and that's not how we want Respawn to be
represented. I apologize to any of our fans that were offended. I will always
stand behind our team here at Respawn and support them on speaking out against
some of the toxic and nasty comments being directed at them, including
everything from death threats to comments aimed at their family and loved ones.
But we shouldn't contribute to it when we do comment, and add to the very thing
we want to prevent. We need to lead by example. Last week we didn't do that, and
going forward we will be better. Having an open, healthy relationship with our
community is incredibly important to all of us at Respawn.
