One reddit user then replied with a recommendation:

“You are still able to play them by pre-selecting them in the lobby menu. Just don’t pick any other Legend in the selection screen.”

One other user suggested this: “Are you sure nobody else picked him before you? Pre-selection pretty much always worked for me so far. Might of course be some other hick-up that the game “forgets” what you have pre-selected, possible.”

Apex Legends Dev to the rescue?

More users were coming to the forum and saying that their are experiencing the issue on all platforms now. A dev from the Respawn team has replied saying that “This should be fixed on PC and PS4 as of 1110pm PST“.
