A new in-game message confirms Fortnite's rocket will launch tomorrow

50v50 was scheduled to enter the rotation today, June 29, at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET; however, Epic announced on Twitter that it discovered "a few issues" with the mode and won't be enabling it just yet.

So how long will the new game mode be down and when can we expect it to be working again? Fortnite's Season 5 setup isn't coming for another two weeks, so the rocket launch probably won't do much at all other than launch into the sky, but it's going to be one of those moments you wish you were around for instead of doing other stuff all day.

Players will be updated with additional information on Monday, July 2. Even more so than if they did that in the regular modes, I mean, since your teammates' lives are literally the points you use to win.

MrPopoTFS on Reddit (a developer at the game) has clarified when we can see an update for Playground mode hit. "So many of you rushed in to create and play that our matchmaking service fell over", a statement from Epic Games reveals.

"We plan to push these changes and improvements live later today to bring the Playground LTM back online". But this is the first time in the game so far where you'll be able to see an event happening live.

"When you make matches for every 1-4 people, it requires between 25x and 100x as many matches as normal per 100 people depending on their party size", the statement reads.
