Fortnite V3.3 Delayed

Fortnite V3.3 Delayed

Epic needs a bit more time before it can dispatch the latest update for Fortnite.

Fortnite V3.3 was supposed to arrive today (March 14), but players need to cool their heels for a little while longer. Yesterday, Epic Games tweeted about an "issue" that's keeping the studio from releasing its latest patch for Fortnite. Neither Battle Royale nor the single-player Save the World campaign will be updated until further notice.

Epic doesn't disclose the nature of the problem, but says it's "working on solving" it, and will update the world as soon as it has some answers. All right, then. Anyone have any board games we can play in the meantime? I've got Hungry Hungry Hippos, but half the marbles rolled under my couch and utterly disappeared about a decade ago.

Nobody likes the Waiting Game, but we all need to play it sometimes.

This delay isn't great news for Save the World fans who are already irritated with Epic for under-delivering on Fortnite's single-player campaign. Hang in there, friends.

Why not use this pause to read up on how to ace every match you play with our Fortnite Battle Royale tips, tricks, and guides? If that doesn't appeal to you, you can start up a good old-fashioned Internet fight over whether Fortnite is better than PUBG? Just know that you'll be arguing against the knife-sharp wit of Patrick the Starfish from SpongeBob Squarepants.
