Fortnite players eagerly awaiting the release of the 28.20 update will have to exercise some patience. The highly anticipated update, which was expected to launch today, has been delayed, leaving fans wondering about the new content and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) event. Here's what we know so far.
Expected Launch Window
Despite the lack of official communication from developer Epic Games, the company has teased a TMNT event coming to Fortnite this Friday. This suggests that the update should be released in the very near future.
Typically, Fortnite updates launch every other week on Tuesdays. Therefore, players were anticipating the release of patch 28.20 today. However, since Epic Games has not provided its usual downtime warning, it appears that the update will not be happening today and has likely been rescheduled for another day.
What to Expect
While no official details have been released about the update and event, leaked early patch notes for update 28.20 suggest that players can look forward to new cosmetics, TMNT skins, and other TMNT-themed content.
It is important to note that these details are based on rumors and leaks, so we will have to wait and see what the update and event entail when they are launched.
Update Deployment and Downtime Schedule
Fortnite content updates typically require several hours of downtime to be deployed into the game. The downtime usually begins around 8am UK Time / 3am ET on launch day and lasts for 3-4 hours. The 28.20 update will follow the same downtime schedule.
