Xbox Input Lag Fix Coming for Apex Legends

DBLTAP logo DBLTAP 7/5/2022 Alexandra Hobbs

Respawn devs have confirmed that a fix for the input lag on Xbox is on its way for Apex Legends.

Console players have been experiencing a bit of a rough patch with Apex Legends, with Xbox users feeling the worst of it. The recent Awakening Collection Event brought with it some cool features and a new Hierloom for Valkyrie. Sadly, that wasn't all that was introduced.

With the event update, Xbox players soon began to notice a huge amount of input lag, essentially making for some incredibly frustrating gameplay. With something so problematic that rendered the game virtually unplayable for many, players were hoping that a fix would be rolled out rapidly.

But two weeks later and the bug is still a prevalent as ever. Fortunately, Respawn have confirmed that they're working on it, with a fix set to be rolled out in the next patch.

Those keeping an eye on the Trello board for Apex Legends will have noticed that the listing for "Players experiencing input lag on Xbox Series X|S" has been given two labels: "Investigating" and "Coming in future patch."

The green "Coming in future patch" patch likely means that Respawn have been able to identify the issue, and are now in a position to fix it. Given how problematic the input lag is, we can hopefully expect the patch to be arriving sooner rather than later.

While fans are always eager to see major content updates come in Apex patches, it's likely we can expect this to be a relatively small, hotfix patch — hopefully going a long way t ensure the game is backto running smoothly.
