Ahead of this, Jason Schreier on Kotaku - who is generally a very reliable industry bloodhound - has gone live with assorted alleged details about Apex Legends.

Rumblings of the surprise release emerged after YouTube channel TheQuartering cited inside sources claiming the game would be announced on Monday, with numerous streamers, such as Shroud and Dr. Disrespect, having reportedly played the game already.

The Titanfall & Titanfall 2 studio, which these days is but one limb on the EA millipede, has confirmed they'll be revealing the game today, and that Apex Legends is indeed its name. Following that event, word about the game got out and we got a better idea of what to expect.

Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment, also revealed that we'll be able to check out the livestream of the game tomorrow at 8 a.m. PT!

Twitter games blogger Nibel has sources saying Apex Legends is "set in the Titanfall universe" and described it as a mix of Blackout and Siege.

Six of his eight Pro Bowl selections and two of his three first-team All-Pro selections came while he was a member of Gang Green. His final statistics included 838 tackles, 169 pass deflections, 53 picks, five sacks and seven touchdowns.

Supposedly, Apex Legends will actually be running on a heavily modified version of Valve's Source Engine. Apex Legends will supposedly feature microtransactions, though how invasive they are remains to be seen once the game launches.

Another peculiar hint is that the URL "playapex.com" directly takes visitors to the Electronic Arts homepage, furthering indicating that the game will be titled "Apex Legends" as rumored.

This is the second Respawn game expected this year, the first being Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.

It's unclear what improvements, if any, have been made to characters or game mechanics from Titanfall 2.
