Epic has confirmed it's bringing back its 14 Days of Fortnite event following a mix-up with the end date.

The event closed on 2nd January, a couple of days earlier than expected given some players had read a Reddit post by Epic Games' David Spazinski, suggesting it would run until 3rd or 4th January. To compensate, Epic gave away the Equalizer Glider, but after further reflection it's decided to bring the entire event back to give players a second chance.

"We communicated an incorrect end date for the 14 Days of Fortnite event and did not feel the Equalizer Glider compensation was the right approach," Epic said by way of a blog post. "After further discussion, we've decided to bring back this event early next week through January 15 at 3 AM ET (8am UK time). We'll also be enabling some of the most popular Limited Time Modes that were available during the event."

"Players who were unable to complete those Challenges will be able to earn all of the rewards they may have initially missed out on," the post continues. "All Challenges will be available to complete for the entire duration of the event. Unfortunately, progress on partially completed challenges has to be reset. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!"
