Fortnite Chapter 2:Season 1 has by far been the longest season of the game and it was first thought that the season would be ending at the start of February, however Epic Games have just released a blog confirming the actual release date of the next season.
Fortnite is moving to Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics engine for the v11.50 update and they aim to ‘ensure Fortnite still feels like Fortnite’ so there will be tests that will be carried out and there may be some issues and improvements that will be made to make the game run smoothly.
