Why is Fortnite's High Stakes Event Delayed?

The waiting continues.

Fortnite Battle Royale’s High Stakes event was originally set to be added to the game today, but Epic has had to delay the event due to controller-specific issues. Epic Games gave the following statement on Tuesday, September 4: 

"Due to the discovery of a critical controller issue, we’ll be moving the release of v5.40 and High Stakes to Thursday, September 6."

The event will now take place a day later on Thursday, September 6 and the Season 5, Week 9 challenges will launch on Friday. Fortnite’s High Stakes event is set to bring a whole new set of challenges, new equipment, a new skin, glider, LTM and more.
