Matchmaking and bug fixes coming soon

Players around the world have been complaining about the matchmaking issues in Apex Legends for a long time. Apparently, during duos and trios, they were getting matched with no teammates.

Apex Legends’ Director of Communications has claimed that the upcoming 9.1 patch will entirely fix this bug. This update will most probably arrive in the end of June. The Director admitted that the matchmaking problems have been frustrating, and fixing them has taken more time than expected.
