One of the most controversial items in Fortnite: Battle Royale history will officially be retired to the vault next week.
The X-4 Stormwing planes will be removed from Fortnite at the start of season eight, according to Epic Games design lead Eric Williamson.
Williamson was among the Epic employees answering fans' questions in a Reddit AMA post this afternoon. One fan asked when planes will be taken out of the game, and Williamson's answer likely made a lot of players happy.
The X-4 Stormwing planes were introduced at the start of season seven on Dec. 6, 2018—but they've been the subject of a lot of criticism and controversy over the past few months.
Now, however, Fortnite fans know that they only have to deal with these planes for a few more days because season eight will begin on Thursday, Feb. 28.
