The Fortnite updates are usually published at the beginning of the week, but the day is never fixed. The update 8.30 (which introduced the Restart van) was published last Wednesday, while a precise date has not yet been established for the next one. Epic Games, in any case, gave us an approximate timeframe.
In a post published in the official sub-Reddit of the game, the American company announced that the 8.40 update will not be published before Wednesday 17 April . This means that if something goes wrong during the processing of the new features, the exit could also slip on Thursday. Furthermore, with the press release, Epic Games has also indirectly confirmed that the next one will be a complete patch, and not a content update of the previous 8.30.
The news that will be introduced are not yet known, but it has been clarified that the audio bugs reported by the players will be solved. According to rumors, moreover, Thanos' MAT could make his return, just in time for the release of the expected Avengers Endgame in cinemas around the world.
