Chapter 2 Season 5 is getting a brand new update! 

Shortly after the big 15.20 update, Fortnite is releasing a new update in 15.21.


Although this is only going to be a minor update; the game is still going to go offline.

Here's when Fortnite will enter downtime and how long we expect it to last! 



FortniteStatus on Twitter has confirmed that downtime for the new patch is going to arrive tomorrow! 


Something’s lurking in the jungle.

Hunt or be hunted in the v15.21 update, scheduled for release on January 20. Downtime will begin at approx. 4 AM ET (09:00 UTC).


How Long

Players can expect the 15.21 downtime to not last as long as it typically does.


This is due to the fact that the update is only a minor one, and not a massive update such as the upcoming 15.30 update.

In case you did not see it, here are all the changes coming to the new patch!

  • New Boss Character + Mythic Item
  • Jungle Hunter Quests
  • IO Guards removed from Arena

It will be interesting to see what kind of Mythic weapon they are implementing tomorrow!


Be sure to let us know if you are looking forward to the new patch.
