LATEST - The Countdown Continues Following Delays
In the wake of Donald Trump's ignorance and the politicised demonisation of the AAPI community in America, violence and racially motivated attacks have been on the rise.
After discussions with the AAPI community, Chinatown Market has opted to undergo a rebrand. This means that their collaboration with Apex Legends that was due to begin on March 30th has been delayed indefinitely.
The collaboration is still on the way, it will just feature new designs that will reflect the rebranding.
Below, we have Chinatown Market's statement explaining their decision.
Release Date & Start Time
The Apex Legends Chinatown Market crossover collaboration is due to begin on March 30th.
However, this is as far as any official information goes. Respawn Entertainment hasn't specified when exactly the new cosmetics will be available.

We're expecting them to go early evening, between 12:00 EST / 17:00 BST and 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST tomorrow though. This is when Apex Legends events usually begin and we're not sure why Respawn would change this for the upcoming collaboration.
So far, the only thing we know about this event is the new cosmetics that are being added to the game.
Over the last couple of days, Respawn Entertainment has been sharing better looks at the previously-leaked skins.

Firstly, we have Bloodhound's Sundown Desperado. Their skin features a red and black aesthetic and a hat Fuse would be proud of!
Next up, Respawn Entertainment has given us a better look at Lifeline's Mic Check cosmetic. This colourful get-up is one of the best skins for Lifeline yet.
These aren't the only two skins though. Notable dataminer and Apex Legends leaker Shrugtal has found a couple of others that we're expecting to see more of ahead of launch.
Both Mirage and Wraith appear to be getting new Legendary Cosmetics in the Chinatown Market Apex Legends crossover.
Other Event Details?
Additional details on what this limited-time event actually consists of are scarce.
This is leading us to believe that the Chinatown Market x Apex Legends collaboration is purely a cosmetic one and will not feature any new limited-time modes.

Maybe a little bit of downtime is a good thing? The Chinatown Market skins are well worth the focus they're going to get, too!
