FortniteBattleRoyale4 - Timeline based on AMA

If you don't already know, Epic did an AMA today. There was a ton of answers, so I though of creating a timeline based on those answers. I hope I got most of it in order. If a link is broken , I missed a question, or put out misinformation, feel free to tell me and I'll update this.
