After receiving fan feedback, the developer has announced it is disabling Final Fight and replacing it with another iteration of the fan-favorite 50v50 mode. We want to inform you that the Playground LTM will remain closed for repairs for the night.
"We're continuing to test our matchmaking service improvements and are still aiming to release the Playground LTM as soon as possible".
Despite only being available in the game for a couple of days, Epic says it made a decision to disable Final Fight after listening to the community's feelings on the mode. Even more so than if they did that in the regular modes, I mean, since your teammates' lives are literally the points you use to win.
The Playground is basically what it sounds like, a sandbox mode where players can get their bearings by playing around in the world of "Fortnite", without competing in any matches.
We know you want to get back out to the Playground LTM.
"We know you're eager to get out there but due to this, we'll be unable to release this game mode tonight". Part of Fortnite's longstanding appeal is the weekly updates that bring new guns to try out, new items that affect gameplay and weekly challenges to keep players coming back for more.
MrPopoTFS on Reddit (a developer at the game) has clarified when we can see an update for Playground mode hit. Epic is now gearing up for another event, but you might only have one opportunity to see it live.
As previously mentioned, the limited-time Playground mode also suffered from a series of issues following its launch and still hasn't returned to the rotation.
