Fortnite Update v12.61 Deploys Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 26

Epic Games has just announced the downtime for update 12.61. Fortnite’s patch 12.61 is going to deploy tomorrow, Tuesday, May 26. The server downtime will begin at 2 AM ET (6 AM UTC). This update should include event files since we’re getting closer to the Doomsday trigger.

This was announced on Fortnite Status’ official Twitter Profile, today.

The Doomsday event is planned to go live with the ending of Season 2, just a day before the release of Season 3. But, according to recent stories, the event itself might be a part of the beginning of Season 3. So, in other words, an event that will drive the players onto the new Fortnite island kicking off the new Fortnite Season.

Patch 12.61 should also address a couple of issues, previously reported on the Trello page. Those can be found below:


  • Numbers not changing on sports-themed Outfits.

Battle Royale

  • Unable to refund Dragacorn Glider.
  • Hit Indicators showing wrong direction.


  • iOS players hitching at high rate

For more detailed info, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
