We're compiling a complete look at some Fortnite 12.61 Patch Notes! We're attempting to collect all of the changes, updates, and bug fixes from the most recent patch. Epic has been less regular about posting their patch notes, so we've gone ahead and made our own version of them! You can find information on everything that was added in the post below.
This patch is likely going to be pretty small, so don't expect many changes or leaks from it. It could just be adding some stuff prior to the final event of the season, so a lot of stuff we won't get much access to.
Patch Release Date & Time
The Fortnite 12.61 Patch has been officially announced to be released on Tuesday, May 26th at 2 AM ET (0600 UTC)! You can expect at least a couple hours of downtime once it has been added to the game.
Official Patch Notes
Prior to each patch, Epic has been sending out a look at some of the highlights from the update to content creators. Here's a look at what they sent for 12.61:
12.61 releases this week on May 26. Highlights include:

- Numbers should now change appropriately when edited on a sports-themed Outfit.
Battle Royale Issues
