Respawn Entertainment has taken down the servers for Apex Legends after they rolled out update 1.1 for the game and it led to a major bug that wiped out the progress of all players.
Apex Legends had received update 1.1 on all platforms today. It can be downloaded as Apex Legends update 1.06 on the PS4 while the PC and Xbox One has their own system update number for Apex Legends. Shortly after installing this update, players started to notice a major bug that wiped out their progress.
This was a strange issue because Respawn Entertainment had released this as a minor update without any major issues as evident with the Apex Legends update version 1.1 patch notes.

JUMP PAD PHASE WALK INTERACTIONS

Once the patch was out, Respawn Entertainment quickly shared another update on Apex Legends where they confirmed that the servers are taken down in order to avoid players from losing their progress.
The reason why the servers are not found for Apex Legends is simple. Respawn Entertainment has taken them offline and is working on a fix that should stop players from losing their complete progress in Apex Legends. If you want to avoid this issue, it is recommended to stop playing until they release a fix for it.
