Fortnite developers Epic Games has been subjected to update delays before and it seems that the developer is facing some last minute issues with its current update v7.40. Fortnite devs have tweeted that they have come across some issues with the release hence it has been delayed.
The tweet read, “Due to a last minute issue we’ve discovered within the v7.40 release, the update will be delayed. We’ll give you an exact time when we lock it down.” This might delay Epic Games’s plan to release things in time for Valentine’s Day with its themed additions to the game.
