Why Is The Fortnite 14.50 PS4 Update Missing?!

Where's the PS4 update?

UPDATE: Fortnite's v14.50 update is now live on PS4!

The PS4 version for today's Fortnite update is missing!

For some reason, Epic Games have distributed update v14.50 to all available platforms apart from the PlayStation 4.

Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Android have received the updates, but nothing has been sent to Sony's flagship console.

What's going on?

Where Is The Fortnite 14.50 PS4 Update?

There's no explanation for why the Fortnite update is missing or when it will finally be distributed to the console.

Players are going mad on social media asking the question everyone wants to know: where is the PS4 update?

There's no logical explanation other than that Epic are struggling with the online services or store for PSN.

@FortniteStatus has said the following:

"Due to an issue, Playstation 4 players will receive v14.50 update at a later time. Until that time they will be able to keep playing on v14.40. We will update you when we'll have more information."

If you check the PSN status, everything is fine other than PlayStation Video - which we doubt is causing the issue.

A new PlayStation skin seems to have been added to the game, could this be causing the delay?
