Fortnite 19.20 (and Covert Canyon) release time confirmed

Fortnite 19.20 is the next major update to Epic's massive battle royale game, and after much speculation and leaks, the developers have indeed confirmed that the new Covert Canyon POI will be part of the update.

The 7:20 p.m. release time has been confirmed, so you can follow the countdown to launch here.

Fortnite 19.20 Update

Downtime for 7:20 p.m. is scheduled to begin Feb. 1 at 1 a.m. PST / 4 a.m. EST / 9 a.m. GMT. As always, matchmaking will be disabled 30 minutes before downtime. The servers will then be unavailable for an indefinite period of time – this can take up to four hours, but downtimes are usually much shorter.

“V19.20 is coming secretly (until we just announced it),” Epic said in a tweet. This seems like a not-too-subtle reference to Covert Canyon, a new POI that dataminers have been teasing for some time. According to leaked map images, it will spawn inside Pinnacle Peak.
