The latest Apex Legends update is causing input lag issues for players on current-gen Xbox consoles.
On Tuesday, the Awakening Collection Event patch went live for Apex Legends. For whatever reason, Xbox Series X|S users are reporting severe input lag problems, making button presses register at an astoundingly slow pace. It doesn’t look like Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, PC, or even Xbox One platforms are facing the same technical hiccups, either.
Shortly after the patch went live on Tuesday, Respawn Entertainment claimed it was investigating the bug. However, there’s been no additional comments as of this post on Wednesday at 9:15 A.M. PDT // 12:15 P.M. EDT // 4:15 P.M. GMT. Social media and Reddit are overflowing with posts from players highlighting how nigh-unplayable Apex Legends currently is on Xbox Series X|S. Watch the clip below to get an idea.
Twitter, in particular, is full of fans venting their frustrations. Understandably so, since Apex Legends is far too aggravating to play in this current state.

Hey @PlayApex the input lag issues on Xbox are preventing me from buying stuff in the store? Any idea when a fix should be coming for all of that?

Apex for Xbox is having major issues, input lag, tracking feels off, and just an overall delay. Help your Xbox community for once Respawn.

There’s no doubt that Respawn Entertainment will address all this, but going an entire day without giving Xbox Series X|S users much of a status update is somewhat alarming. Many community members are already upset over an audio glitch that’s not been patched despite widespread reports. Hopefully, things will smooth out soon.
