Fortnite Update 12.50 will arrive this week, according to Fortnite data miner and Twitter user @ShiinaBR.

ShiinaBR did not share a specific release date, but Fortnite fans expect the update to hit live servers either Wednesday or Thursday based on Epic Games' previous update release patterns.

Epic Games has left the contents of Fortnite Update 12.50 unconfirmed outside of a bug fix for Sky's "Block damage with a Kingsman" challenge failing to track progress.

Epic Games originally planned to end Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 on April 30, likely in the same update window it will now use for Fortnite Update 12.50. The developer announced it would extend Season 2 — thereby delaying Season 3 — in an April 14 developer blog post. Season 3 is now scheduled to arrive June 4, more than a month later.

Epic Games did not provide an explanation for the delay.
