When will Fortnite 16.00 update start
Chapter 2 Season 6 of Fortnite will start in a few hours. Of course, there will be the 16.00 update for Fortnite, and it already has an approximate release time.
The 16.00 update will come out tomorrow, 16 March 2021 at 12:00 AM ET (04:00 UTC). You still have some time to complete your challenges and level up, so be sure to play the game if you need to do something – matching will be turned off 30 minutes before the update starts.
During downtime, patch rollout times will vary per platform, but downtime for ALL platforms will end at the same time.
With the launch of the new Season, please note that patch sizes will be larger than normal on all platforms. [2/2]

The time when Fortnite 16.00 update starts will be different for all the platforms, but the end will be at the same time. Also, the size of the updates in Season 6 might be larger than usually. Let’s just hope we won’t need to download 15 GB of data with each update.
The servers’ launch is planned for approximately 04:00 AM ET (08:00 UTC).
