The message of the day has not updated to announce a new item once again, so it’s likely there will be no new item added to Fortnite Battle Royale. It’s possible this update is only for bug fixes as well as adding encrypted files for the upcoming Fortnite Season 10 live launch event.
There likely won’t be any new files for dataminers to leak as the last update was a major patch update. However, as always, we’ll keep you updated with latest news coming from the v10.40.1
