The Apex Legends -News and Leaks twitter handle explain that the server went down to hide the L-Star gun skill leak which got release unexpectedly due to some bug.
There is no confirmation from both Redspawn and EA about the leak and whether the skin would be released or not. Redspawn has previously mentioned to not take these data mined leaks seriously.
