Fortnite Season 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2 was originally scheduled to conclude on April 30, but a couple of weeks prior, developer Epic Games announced an extension. June 4 are going to be the new ending date for Season 2, and Season 3 is scheduled to start out immediately afterward. More content for Season 2 will keep you buys within the meantime, but we are quickly approaching the Fortnite Season 3 start date and can be ready to play all-new challenges and modes soon.
Now that Season 2 are going to be running for several more weeks, Epic says there’ll be “lots” of additional content coming to the sport . “We have multiple game updates on the way which will deliver fresh gameplay, new Challenges, bonus XP, and a few more surprises up our sleeve!” the developer teased during a blog post.
But it appears Season 3 is already being teased with in-game posters discovered at Lazy Lake. They specialise in sharks and water content and seemingly reference Season 3 directly in their files.
Chapter 2 – Season 2 has been extended.
Plenty more coming this season: fresh gameplay, new Challenges, bonus XP & more!

This certainly is not the first time Epic has extended a season of Fortnite. Season 1 of Chapter 2 was similarly extended by several weeks from its original December 2019 end date into February 2020. During that overtime , the developer held numerous events within the game, including a Star Wars Episode IX preview and a Harley Quinn crossover event.
Season 2 has its own magazine crossover. Battle Pass owners can unlock a Deadpool skin by clearing a number of this season’s Deadpool challenges. An alternate, unmasked Deadpool skin also can be unlocked by completing Week 8’s Deadpool missions, which ask you to seek out Deadpool’s pool floaty and dance at Deadpool’s Yacht party.
Season 2’s extension means you’ve got longer to finish any weekly challenges you’ll not have gotten around to from this season. If you would like help clearing those, you’ll find all of our maps and guides in our complete Fortnite Season 2 challenges roundup.
When Does Fortnite Season 3 Start?
While a particular date has not been confirmed, given when Season 2 ends, we will expect Chapter 2, Season 3 to start out on or around June 4.
