In some of these games the improvements that would arrive on November 10 were detailed, but in the case of other highly popular ones like Fortnite, there was no talk about the improvements that would arrive with the new generation.

It has been until today when Epic Games has finally made the improvements official that will reach the new Xbox consoles and the PlayStation 5, which we can enjoy from November 10 for Xbox Series X / S and November 12 for PS5 in Mexico.
