'Fortnite' Streamer Ninja Made $1 Million to Promote 'Apex Legends'

'Fortnite' Streamer Ninja Made $1 Million to Promote 'Apex Legends'

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", wrote Respawn community manager Jay Frechette on reddit. For more information and news about Apex Legends, visit the game's website.

Being two of the most popular streamers on Twitch and both having passed 100,000 subscribers at a point, it is not surprising that they were sought for their influence in the space and it certainly led to a large influx of players to the game.

In a message to fans, Respawn warned that not every leak is accurate, and that some discoveries will never make it into the game.

Ninja is now mostly back to playing Fortnite - the game he's best known for - though there are a handful of more recent Apex Legends streams mixed in there.

"So between the datamining and the unintentional update about Season 1 on Origin today, there's been a lot of speculation and confusion so we wanted to give some clarity", the post reads. 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.

Respawn's statement also follows Origin prematurely showing some users adverts for Season One, featuring a new mobility-focused hero called Octane and a battle pass that costs 950 Apex Coins. Although EA refused to comment on the exact amount, an inside source confirmed to Reuters that the sum Tyler received was that $1 million jackpot, nearly double the streamer's average monthly income (reported to be around $500,000 a month, split between YouTube, Twitch and sponsorship deals).

The screenshot shows a new Legend, Octane, along with new weapons and "unique loot".
