Epic Games announced that they are in the process of creating an 'emergency patch' following reports of issues with the V.4.5 update.
Released on June 27th, the V.4.5 patch in Fortnite: Battle Royale introduced a number of new additions and items into the game, including Dual Pistols, the highly-anticipated 'Playground' mode, and more.
However, multiple users reported various in-game issues after V.4.5 was launched, which led Epic Games to remove the 'Playground' mode so that they could add the necessary changes and fixes so that it can run smoothly.

The announcement came via Twitter, however, no time was provided
We’re aware of the stability and performance issues currently impacting players and we’re working on an emergency patch to resolve this. We’ll keep everyone updated on the progress and roll out of the patch.
