Where Is The v17.20 Fortnite Update?

If you’ve woken up hoping to find a new Fortnite update waiting for you, you’ll be disappointed. Epic Games are reportedly on a summer break, meaning no new content will be arriving for another week or two.

According to Fortnite Twitter leaker, XTigerHyperX, Epic Games’ vacation will last for two weeks.

Going off of this information, the next Fortnite update (v17.20) could arrive on either July 13th or July 20th.

So, what will be included in the next Fortnite update?

Leaked Lebron James Skin

If leaks are to be believed, Lebron James will be the next Fortnite Icon Series Skin. Fans will hopefully be able to get their hands on the new Basketball skin when Fortnite v17.20 releases sometime this month.

Fortnite Twitter Teases

As well as the arrival of Lebron James expected in the next update, the Fortnite Twitter accounts have been teasing something further. Fortnite Twitter leaker, ShiinaBR, seems to believe that Epic Games are hinting towards a possible underground POI.

The teasers are likely connected to the giant UFO Mothership slowly moving its way around the island. It’s possible that the Mothership may come crashing down in the next Fortnite update, creating an underground part of the island for players to explore.

Unfortunately though, this is all speculation and leaks, so take it with a grain of salt.
