Apex Legends leaked a year ago, but no one believed it
Have you ever heard the tale of Cassandra, the oracle who kept revealing true prophecies, only to have no one believe her? That story’s been updated for a modern age, with Reddit user hiticonic taking on that tragic role. Hiticonic shared the map of Apex Legends 11 months in advance of the game’s official reveal, and he was greeted with scorn and boos for his efforts. "Alleged Minimap for Rumored Titanfall Battle Royale Game" hiticonic’s thread on the Titanfall subreddit from last April, contained an image of a map for what would later be revealed as Kings Canyon. The user added no context, however, and received few responses in return. But if you’re familiar with Apex Legends, you can tell that this strange leak was accurate, even though there have been a few tweaks to it before the game’s reveal and launch. Not only was his thread seriously downvoted, but the top response was, “I really hope this doesn’t happen.” (That commenter has since apologized for his hubris ,writing, “I have put too much time into this game so far, my prejudice was very wrong.” He also added, “You should see my inbox lmao.”) Some users went so far as to call hiticonic a fake in their original thread, suggesting that hiticonic was creating fictional maps for Reddit upvotes. You would think that the release of Apex Legends would vindicate them in the eyes of his peers, yet the top comment once again casts doubt on hiticonic.
