The news was revealed over at Respawn’s official Twitter account, where they’ve posted the patch notes of what’s to come to the game soon. In it, it seems that they will punish Apex Legends players who leave Arenas matches early.
What’s the punishment? Quitters will face the same punishment for leaving a ranked Battle Royale match, meaning that they will be unable to search for matches for a set amount of time.
The penalty is only applicable if you are in a full squad when you left. It seems that before you attempt to leave, the game will give you a popup and warns you should you are about to leave a game in-progress.
It’s understandable on why Respawn has decided to implement the punishment where before this, players were able to leave the game without any consequences thus ruining the game.

Pokdepinion: I’ve been enjoying the new Arenas mode but every now and then, there’s always that one person who leaves the game while it’s still ongoing. Hopefully this update will make players of the game to think twice before quitting.
