Fortnite’s next major update has had to be pushed back again, as Epic Games move the game over to a different physics engine.

Fortnite players have been able to enjoy new cosmetics and other items since the beginning of the year, but most are probably hungry for a major update to the game. One was supposed to come at the beginning of February to herald the beginning of Chapter 2 Season 2, but Epic Games has unfortunately had to delay it.

In a post on its official website, Epic were able to provide a new date for the next season: 20 February. While it didn’t provide an exact reason for the delay, the post does mention that, starting with the 11.50 update coming in early February, Fortnite will be moved to Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics engines.

That seems to imply it’s the reason behind the delay, and sounds like the move has resulted in issues that Epic Games want to have dealt with before the next season begins.

‘At launch, the goal is to ensure that Fortnite still feels like Fortnite. Along the way there will be some bumps, so we’re starting tests with a small group of players. We’ll also closely monitor feedback and make improvements over time,’ says the post.

Epic also teased fans with what can be expected in the new season, but it doesn’t hint towards much, with the sentence reading as ‘Chapter 2 Season 2 will feature [redacted] with multiple [redacted]. We can’t brief you on all of next Season’s secrets just yet…’

It did confirm that, before the current season ends, additional Overtime challenges will be added, as well as a new two-week event, telling fans to pay attention to Fortnite’s social media channels for more information.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
