Epic Games has pushed back two of its planned PvE events for Fortnite due to concerns over the stability of the game.

The Valentine’s and Spring it On events were scheduled to go live in Save the World this week and next week, respectively, but have both been pushed back a week to ensure the stability of upcoming updates.

“Due to our internal concerns regarding the stability of our v.2.5.0 update the Valentine’s and Spring it On events will be delayed a week,” the developer wrote. “That means we won’t be landing the dates stated in our State of Development v1.”

The Valentine’s event will now land on February 14th along with a special questline, Valentine’s-themed heroes, the Cupid Crossbow weapon, a new quest type, and the option to opt-in to a higher difficulty setting to earn more rewards. While the Spring it On event is now scheduled to begin on February 21st with the release of update 3.0.0, which also include new store items and a complete in-game music overhaul.

Finally, update 3.1.0 is scheduled to launch on February 28th, bringing with it part two of the Spring it On event, quest map improvements, and an overhaul to player movement and the stamina system.

Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
