Fortnite Update 12.21 Patch Notes & server downtime for next Chapter 2 download

Epic Games official Fortnite Status Twitter account has announced its intention to release the games next big update to the game.

So regardless whether you player Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android or even Nintendo Switch, get ready, the Fortnite update 12.21.

It also means plenty of new features, tweaks and bug fixes for the games three moves: Battle Royale, Save the World and Creative.

Fortnite Status announced the news late on Monday evening, telling fans:

"Hey, all! v12.21 is scheduled for Tuesday, March 24. Downtime begins at 2 AM ET (0600 UTC)."

For those in the UK, that means a new download will be ready from 6am UK time on March 24.

Yes that is a slightly different time to the normal downtime we see for the game, but then again, it seems most games are opperating on slightly different timescales right now with the Coronavirus and many devs working from home.

It's not yet clear what the new 12.21 update will contain in terms of content, but it's likely to be something new for all game modes to play with.

Equally, having released a large update to the game last week, we wouldn't imagine there are loads of new skins and map changes coming.

It's likely going to be a few choice additions to the game. Perhaps even the Deadpool skin which should be arriving shortly.

Keep reading and you can take a look at the existing bugs which are listed as fixed in a future release.

Epic Games doesn't do a great job of sharing patch notes with players anymore, so for now, this is the best the community can look forward to when it comes to knowing what may be included in the Fortnite update 12.21 changes.

That said, these are merely early patch notes based on what we believe could be changed, but if you check back on March 24, we could have a more thorough list of changes based on what the community spots, post-release.
