In a Tweet, the developers announced that a patch on its way very soon, hinting at some urgent upkeep that the game’s client has been lacking of late.

The update is scheduled for January 31 at 4am PST / 7am EST / 12pm GMT and will look to address “some minor bugs.”

Fans will hope that the update means a fix to the massively popular Replay Mode, which was disabled after an influx of problems originated from the feature.

Many are speculating that the minor patch will also see the Ping counter get fixed after the v7.30 update changed the way Epic Games’ servers calculated users’ connection.

The problem got increasingly annoying when it would display “Connection Lost” to many players, even though nothing seemed to be wrong with their ping.

Epic GamesFortnite’s been pestered by many bugs as of late, and will hope that the patch will see a better game state.

The patch is said to be a seamless integration that won’t require any downtime for the game, but will still require players to update their clients.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
