Epic Games has revealed the list of issues and bugs that are currently in Fortnite: Battle Royale that should be fixed with the release of the next update.
Although the list was not formally announced, Fortnite developers have recently marked several of the issues on the Trello Community Board as “fixed in next release.”
It is not yet clear whether the fixes will be implemented in the v5.0 Content Update, which will be released on July 17, or the v5.1 Game Update, which has yet to be announced.
Either way, these issues and bugs will be patched very soon, which is good news for the game’s vast player-base.
