July 5, 2022: For unknown reasons, the Fortnite 21.20 update has been delayed to tomorrow, July 6.

The Fortnite 21.20 release date appears to be just around the corner now. We don't have official confirmation but we have so much to go off that it seems likely. Fortnite has seen so many updates over the last few years that a new update seems imminent.

With 21.10 out a couple of weeks ago, many players are looking forward to what's next. Here's what we know so far.

If you've been playing the latest update and want to know how Fortnite reality seeds work or want all the latest information on Fortnite chapter 3, season 3, this is what you should know.

Fortnite Update 22.10 Out Tomorrow

With it not releasing today, as expected, leakers understand it will drop tomorrow, July 6. iFireMonkey tweeted to confirm that expectation.

When Is the Fortnite 21.20 Update Release Date?

We don't yet have an official date for the Fortnite 21.20 Update, but updates tend to release on Tuesday morning. This being said, since we know it has been delayed, Fortnite 21.20 should be out on July 6.

Considering the update files were found within the game on Tuesday June 28, it makes sense for it to land the week after. The below tweet from the Fortnite Competitive account seems to be as conclusive as it'll get:

Fortnite 21.20 Update Downtime

Generally, downtime is scheduled to go live just before the next update arrives. This means that, if Fortnite 21.20 goes out on July 5, we should expect a few hours of downtime just before that. Generally, it's worth planning that time out to let Fortnite do what it needs to.

From here, wait a couple of hours to get in there again. If the game doesn't go live when it's supposed to, you can just leave it for another hour or so and it will sort itself out.

Equally, we don't yet know what the Fortnite 21.20 update will include, specifically. That said, expect Indiana Jones content to finally unlock, as the in-game timer for that set of objectives runs out on July 5.

Now that you know what you can about Fortnite update 21.20, it's worth prepping for what's next. You can do so by having a look at some of the best monitors for Fortnite if you happen to be in the market for a new display.
