Fortnite 6.21 patch delayed as Epic Games pulls update after finding last-minute bug

6.21 update was expected this morning, but has now been delayed for at least 24 hours

EPIC GAMES has pulled this week's Fortnite update due to a "last minute issue".

Epic's weekly updates to Fortnite often bring fun, interesting and often game-breaking changes to the game's Battle Royale mode, and it seems this time their testing actually found one of the latter.

The update is now scheduled for tomorrow morning, November 1, at 8a.m. UK time.

We don't know what joys it will hold, but a recent in-game tease of new balloons that will let players "defy gravity" make them seem like a very likely addition this time around.

Posting in the game's official forum on Reddit, Epic staff hinted that the balloons were indeed on the way as they promised "to get you floating into v6.21 as soon as possible," while assuring users the patch hadn't been pulled entirely, just "temporarily deflated".

You can probably expect more spooky content for Fortnitemares to be revealed, as those festivities don't officially end until November 26.

 

 

It's also worth noting that while our clocks have changed, those in the USA don't go back until this Sunday, so if you're trying to work out when timings listed in EDT or PDT, you need to add one hour less than normal to convert to UK timings.

If you're craving new content, the new Juggling emote has been added to the Item Store, along with some spooky outfits just in time for Hallowe'en.

Fans have been split over recent changes, with the glider changes causing controversy as a Fortnite pro was eliminated in the final of the firm's big-money Fall Skirmish by a bug in that system.

Another embarrassing bug found by players this week meant Epic had to disable a popular skin players earned during season 4 because it was making users invisible.
