"There are some people who think there are too many battle royale games or it's a fad, the world thinks we're making Titanfall 3 and we're not - this is what we're making", Apex Legends' lead producer Drew McCoy told Eurogamer.
"So you probably don't have to call in sick, just fake food poisoning at lunch and go home early". It looks like the game's map may have been leaked by an insider, though the source is impossible to verify. Players also apparently have to play in squads, so picking characters with complementary skills and a leader who can land in prime loot territory is part of the strategy.

Apex Legends is the new battle royale game from Respawn Entertainment, the makers of the Titanfall franchise. Considering we know nothing besides the fact that it's set in the Titanfall universe and is a battle royale, there's a lot to learn.
This isn't the first time a game's reveal has been ruined, but Respawn CEO Vince Zampella took it in stride and confirmed the game's existence, telling everyone to check the game's Twitch account on Monday. Zampella said in a subsequent tweet this morning that this was only a "teaser" stream; a full reveal stream for the game will follow at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET / 8 PM GMT.
No other information was provided apart from the Twitch link, which can be found above.
Streamers like Preston, Daequan and TSM Myth announced that they had been invited to the secret event and were excited for the game's official reveal. Interestingly, Apex Legends will not include any of the iconic Titan mech suits. There are no titans in Apex Legends, which is why this isn't launching with Titanfall in the name.
