Players are reporting issues with Fortnite’s Xbox One mouse and keyboard support, following this week’s public release.
Microsoft just rolled out its freshest Xbox One update, delivering native mouse and keyboard support across select games. Further expanding the console’s feature set, its implementation brings a viable gamepad alternative, with compatibility for most USB-connected peripherals. However, despite extensive Xbox Insider testing, it appears some users are experiencing mouse issues following the public release.
We’re seeing numerous reports of Fortnite Xbox One players experiencing input latency when using a mouse and keyboard; a delay between moving the mouse and a subsequent on-screen action. The issue’s cause is unclear, affecting only select Xbox One players, and we’re currently unable to replicate it as of publication.
Given the variety of modern mice and keyboards on the market, it comes as no surprise issues are arising in the early days. Current reports detail extensive latency in Fortnite exclusively, with both Warframe and Minecraft mostly absent of the issue, indicating something isn’t playing nice with Microsoft and Epic Games’ solution.
