The primary cause of this connectivity issue is not known yet, but still, it is believed that such abnormal functionality is experienced due to the tremendous popularity of this newly launched title.
As Apex Legends is recently released and already crossed the 10 million mark, the servers failed to assist such vast numbers and it faced such issues on Saturday.
