Cheaters flock to popular games, so it comes as no surprise to see cheating already hit Apex Legends.
If you're playing Apex Legends right now (I imagine most are), and you've seen Chappie, it's probably already occurred to you how good a fit the police droid would be for Respawn's battle royale.
A few days ago you may have seen this Reddit post highlight a peculiar message in the Apex Legends kill feed. Sandwiched in-between the usual murder and death was the comment "a nessy appears". Mysterious and unexplained - until now.
First it was a million, then 10m, and now 25m. Apex Legends has experienced some seriously rapid growth, and its latest player milestone indicates there's currently no sign of it slowing down.
On Tuesday morning, it was looking distinctly like Respawn Entertainment's battle royale gamble had paid off, with Apex Legends having amassed 1 million players in just a few hours after its surprise launch. Now, however, 72 hours in, that's climbed to a whopping 10 million players.
Cheer up Titanfall fans - it's not all gloom and doom. Despite Respawn producer Drew McCoy telling Eurogamer Titanfall 3 was not currently in development, this isn't the end for the Titanfall franchise, as a new game is set to release by the end of 2019.
Just what this will be, however, remains something of a mystery.
The news was initially teased by Respawn CEO Vince Zampella, who last night dropped the "T word" on Twitter to promise more Titanfall content this year. It's worth noting his phrasing here, which hints this will be another "experiment" in the Titanfall universe.
It's been out for a matter of hours, but Apex Legends has exploded out the gate to bag itself over 1 million unique players on day one.
Surprise! It's now official: Respawn's been quietly working on a free-to-play, first person shooter battle royale called Apex Legends - and it's already available for players to download.
