All eyes are on Tim Sweeney as Fortnite players have been patiently awaiting news of the highly anticipated Creative 2.0 update. Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney told Fortnite leakers ShiinaBR and Hypex that Creative 2.0 will be coming this year, but it won’t be anytime soon.

They went on to say that it’s not really new that it’s coming out this year. Most gamers who kept an eye on what was going on knew that Creative 2.0 was likely to come out this year.

But the fact that it won’t be out soon helps narrow the timeframe. The big update for Fortnite will likely arrive towards the end of the year, maybe October, November or December.

Fortnite Creative 2.0 release date is all but confirmed: here’s what the update could have

While there isn’t much official information about the 2.0 update, leakers and other players have plenty of ideas as to what it might contain.

One important thing to remember is that Creative 2.0 probably won’t be the full version when it first comes out. Players who have been around for a while may remember that the first version of Creative wasn’t what it is now.

New tools and skills have been added since then, and Fortnite players can expect the same to happen when 2.0 comes out.

Fortnite usually has a third-person view, but Creative 2.0 might have a first-person view instead. Recent leaks revealed that Epic was working on a first-person view that could be added to the creative update.

Editing is one of the hardest parts of creative mode for most people. Whether you’re trying to delete, copy, or modify something, it’s usually a lot harder than it should be. These problems have been around for a long time.

There are rumors that 2.0 will allow more than one player to be created at the same time. That way people could collaborate in multiplayer worlds or build their own things in the same space.

There is also a good chance that working the terrain will be part of it. Since most of the settings share the same country, this is something that many creators have wanted for a long time.

Many loopers can’t wait for this to happen as it would almost certainly turn Creative into something completely different than what it is now.

There will likely be a few new gadgets as well, like the much-anticipated chair device, which will allow players to sit on almost anything in the world. This would be very helpful on maps that aren’t busy (like the Soundwave series maps).

There’s a lot more to come in the update, and as the tentative release date approaches, more information is likely to be revealed. Aside from what Tim Sweeney said about the release date, all of this information is based on leaks or fan theories. Epic Games has only confirmed a small amount of this, so fans should take it with a grain of salt.
