According to The sources spoke to Insider Gaming on condition of anonymityThe workers were invited to a “business update” meeting on Zoom yesterday, where they were told their contracts would not be renewed.

Interestingly, the managers and project leaders did not hear the news and found out only after the call that the contracts related to quality management would not be renewed. Formed in 2022, the UK team has been responsible for quality control for Apex Legends since Season 16.

During the call, it was said that the decision not to renew the contracts was not due to the team's performance, but rather to “organizational restructuring.” Sources said the group performed well and met all its internal targets and objectives. “Everything seemed to be moving towards a normal renewal, ready to face Apex's plans next year,” said a source surprised by the news.

The result is that victims are now rushing to find work as some contracts expire in a matter of weeks. In March 2024, EA CEO Andrew Wilson stated that Apex Legends had a community of “one hundred million players” and that Apex would expand “beyond the traditional battle royale universe” later this year.
