Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment has put out a pretty blunt statement telling players to stop harassing members of the development team.
Respawn is recognized for their work on the released Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
But the statement issued by the studio has an implication that appears to be that it is targeting people specifically harassing members of the Apex Legends team.Respawn Entertainment wrote the following on their account:
“Recently, we have seen an increase in harassment towards members of our development team. We welcome feedback from the community, however, the line between constructive feedback and harassment of our development team cannot be crossed.”
In addition to making it clear that they will take the necessary measures if this continues:
“We want to remind our players that we have a zero tolerance policy for threats and harassment from our developers. We will take appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of our team. We love hearing feedback and will continue to work alongside our community to foster a respectful and collaborative environment and uphold the competitive integrity of our game.”
The causes of harassment of the Apex Legends team
It’s unclear if there was any particular incident that prompted Respawn to step in and issue this statement.
However, it’s not the first time a video game developer has said something about the way gamers have treated employees this year.
God of War Ragnarok developer Santa Monica Studio asked everyone to treat each other with respect, for example in July, following news rumors of the game being delayed.
Generally speaking, Apex Legends Season 14, or “Hunted,” is currently available with Vantage as the newest Legend in the game.
Other video games from Respawn Entertainment include Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
