In mid April, Epic Games announced that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 had been extended. Chapter 2 Season 3 was changed and was supposed to release on Thursday, June 4th. However, Epic have just announced that chapter 2 season 2 has been extended once again with season 3 being pushed back by a week.
In a blog post on the official Fortnite website, Epic Games stated that in an effort to get everything ready for chapter 2 season 3, they’ve extended season 2 by a week. The event that was supposed to take place this week has also been delayed. Here’s everything you need to know.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Extended
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 will now end on Thursday, 11th June. Players now have an additional week to complete the challenges that have been released this season including the Brutus, TNTina, Meowscles, Skye, Midas, Maya and Deadpool challenges.
There’s also the Storm The Agency challenges that were released added along with the Location Domination challenges.
Fortnite Season 3 Release Date
Every new season of Fortnite begins on Thursday, and season 3 is no different. With season 2 ending on June 11th, season 3 will start on the same day. The season usually ends at 6 or 7 AM BST, so expect season 3 to begin once the servers are back up from maintence.
Servers are usually down for at least two hours when a new season launches, which means we can expect Fortnite season 3 to officially launch at 10 AM BST.
When is the Fortnite Doomsday Event?
In the blog post, Epic Games have stated that the one-time-only event that was expected to take place this week on Saturday has also been delayed. In the post, they state it is now scheduled for Saturday, June 6th at 2 PM ET.
The live event is called ‘The Device’ according to Epic, although it’s labelled at Doomsday in the files leaked by data-miners. You’ll need to show up to the Fortnite event at least 30 minutes early as there’ll be limited spaces for the event!
