Fortnite receives regular updates to keep the game ticking over with fresh content, so when will the next one arrive? Here’s everything we know about when the Fortnite 29.20 update will be released in Chapter 5 Season 2.

Epic Games are always releasing new Fortnite updates to ensure game modes like LEGO Fortnite and Festival as well as the main BR playlists stay fresh. These often bring new weapons, major crossovers, and gameplay tweaks.

While the devs often keep their plans close to their chest, the schedule for the next patch has leaked ahead of time. So, here’s everything we know about when the next Fortnite update, v29.20, will arrive.

Fortnite 29.20 update release date leaked

The next Fortnite update is set to arrive on April 9, 2024, according to leaks, although this hasn’t been confirmed by Epic Games just yet. It will reportedly be the v29.20 update.

It hasn’t been confirmed exactly what the Fortnite 29.20 update will bring, but reliable leaker Shiina claimed that it will bring the Avatar collab, including skins, the Event Pass, Mythics, and more.

Of course, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is all based on leaks so far, so the plans could easily change and the update could be moved forward or pushed backward.
