Epic Games have announced that Fortnite Chapter Season 3 has been delayed. Chapter 2 Season 2 will has been extended for a week. A new Fortnite event, ‘the device’, has also been announced by Epic.

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!

Are you happy you have more time to gain XP and complete the Battle Pass this season, or are you disappointed both the event and season 3 have been delayed? Let us know in the comments section below.

A developer not rushing out a release, for once? I can’t find any reason to complain about that really.

So ready for this season 2 to end. I don’t like the extra delays or more challenges for the same thing. Come on with season 3 something new.

I actually want this extra time to get shadow skye. You’d think there’s no point for the season if you got full gold midas, but I actually want to get the shadow style for her. (Btw I’m not 140, I’m 139 in the season)

There is much more. To finish Golden peely you need to level at least 340. So i think you,ll need about 10 extra weeks

Level 340 is utterly ridiculous in every way, yeah. I mean I don’t like playing the same game 8 hours a day, I like variety.

I know. Season 2 isn’t bad it is just really long. Good battle pass and a big step up from last season, but some skins are just eh, like Agent Peely, and Brutus, and TNTina. Though, I really like Maya and Midas, on the better side of skins. Especially Midas. Maya is also really cool, I like how you can customize her!

Brutus with his ghost skin is like a giant stormtrooper. So he is one of the best in the game by default.

Wish there was more challenges. I will get to level 300 this week, pushing for it without buying levels, and came to peace with not having full gold Peely but happy to have it unlocked, but now with this extra week I could get to half gold Peely and I just don’t want that. Wish the turning them gold would carry to the next season.

At that you might as well give it a shot. Though I guess if you have done literally every single challenge and have none left, at all, then I guess it’s not worth it.

I know, but you can’t get mad at them, they are people too. And this season was a really big step up from Chapter 2 Season 1. The Devs. are working from home but are still managing to keep the game balanced. They even did the travis scott event from home! You shouldn’t be mad at them they are trying their best.

i didnt think of it that way, thats true but i think they shouldnt put a date and hype it when they arent sure. And about season one, yeah i couldnt agree more xD

You are right about the hyped dates. I remember how annoyed I was when the season got extended to june 4, but now i am even more annoyed.

Do you want a new season to be good or do you want it to be full of bugs because of a one week difference? Think about it.

if u think that was the reason they extended it, then sit and watch when it get started, Fortnite is always full of bugs. All im saying is that they shouldnt give a time if they wanna change it again, i dont have much problem with it rn

If u read my first comment to Babylon, u would know that there are still challenges u might have left. So I think it’s for the best to get challenges done.

Happy they extended so I could finish all the challenges. Unhappy still because even though I completed every challenge this season and daily’s I am still only level 261! I wanted to have all the skins.

What season did you guys start? I started in Chapter 1, Season 3, but I didn’t make my account till season 4. Lol i have not a lot of proof Im from season 4 but I have some things. My first battle pass was this season (chapter 2 season 2). Got midas in about a month. I missed out on a lot of good skins like lynx, drift, calamity, rox, catalyst, and more! Im lucky too have the battle pass though (I really like maya, midas, and the skye skins!)
