If you are a fan of the online multiplayer video game “Fortnite: Battle Royale” you would know that a very specific item has been delayed for the past couple of weeks. The item in question here is obviously the jetpack, and the reason that Epic Games gave for its delay is the fact that there is an unforeseen design issue with the jetpack. The jetpack was first announced back in February, and it will now soon be creeping up to the end of April which makes this perhaps the longest delayed item in “Fortnite: Battle Royale” history. However, there has recently been an update regarding this item as a few new in-game files detail the future of the jetpack.

What did these in-game files say about the future of the jetpack?

What happened here was that a very popular YouTuber called "DieBuddiesZocken" was able to find a new set of “Fortnite: Battle Royale” game files that detail the future of this item. Now, the code that this person found had the following words in it: “Use a Jetpack.” This could mean that the jetpack will be coming to the game soon as Epic Games are clearly making the jetpack a top priority of theirs to get out to the public. However, there were also a few other statements in the game’s code that have interested a lot of gamers online. For instance, the code also contained the words “Skydive through floating rings” -- this statement has led many people to believe that a new challenge may involve having to fly through floating rings at certain parts of the map.

It is safe to say that these “Fornite: Battle Royale” leaks have made many people interested in what the future of the jetpack will be, along with this potential new challenge.

Is there any other news regarding this popular game?

Now, in case you have been living under a rock, you wouldn’t know that “Fortnite: Battle Royale” has been making the news all over the world and some of it has been for both good and bad reasons.

An example of a good reason would be the fact that the “Fortnite: Battle Royale” developers -- Epic Games -- have constantly been updating this game and these updates include new skins and items. However, some negative news about this game would be the fact that a mother recently appeared on British national television and talked about how her son had become addicted to the video game. Another instance of negative news would be the fact that some of these updates have come with some lagging issues and this seemed to bother some gamers online.
