Epic will not reinstate Fortnite's Playground mode until next week

Fortnite Playground mode LTM

Fortnite Playground mode LTM

We're sorry we haven't been able to get you in the LTM, and we know waiting is the worst.

Launched alongside the v4.5 update early on June 27th, the Playground LTM offers players the chance to play alongside their friends and do whatevery they like in a private, low-pressure environment with the full Fortnite map at their disposal.

The new mode of play was removed Wednesday to the chagrin of many players.

Along with the sandbox-style Playground mode (which now remains offline while Epic irons out issues that cropped up shortly after it launched), this week's Fortnite: Battle Royale update marked the start of another limited-time event, Final Fight Teams of 12.

But even more interesting is information posted by Fortnite dataminers Two Epic Buddies.

Meanwhile Epic says it is still unable to resolve issues preventing the launch of the Playground LTM.

Epic explained why it was taken offline shortly after the limited time mode was taken off the game.

We will of course update you all if the mode returns, but for now you're just going to have to learn Fortnite the same way as the rest of us, by dying a lot and enduring some matchmaking times.

He also confirmed that the game mode would be unavailable throughout the night and Fortnite fans should expect another update on the progress some time today. While the usual servers were back up and running within a few hours, Playground mode has yet to be restored.

"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.
