Epic Games have just announced that Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2 has been extended. Here is when the new season will start and what will happen in the meantime.

Epic have just confirmed that the current season of Fortnite, Chapter 2 – Season 2, will be extended and will not finish on April 30th as previously thought and will last a lot longer than expected.

In the past, Epic have extended the season where necessary and when this first happened, they had introduced the Overtime Challenges, which have been added in every season since. Here is what Epic are planning on doing to Fortnite this season and when the new season will begin.

Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2 New End Date

The new end date for the season will now be June 4th, more than a month after the original date. As mentioned before, they have released Overtime Challenges in the past for extended weeks, but this only usually covered a maximum of two weeks.

In the blog that was posted by Epic, they had stated that they would be still be a lot of content still to come for this season.

New game updates are in the works, which they have said will deliver fresh gameplay, new challenges and Bonus XP. They have also said that they have more surprised yet to come, but have not explained what these will be.

One of the concerned players have had is not being able to get enough XP to unlock the gold versions of the Battle Pass Skins, but as the season has now been extended, it seems like this will not be an issue as more challenges will be released and there will also be bonus XP, which will likely be enough to get all the gold styles easily.

They had said in the blog, “More ways to unlock the Gold Battle Pass styles? Meow you’re talking!”, which could mean that they could just be adding challenges that will unlock the gold styles, but we will have to wait and see.

Yes exactly, you definitely need more time to unlock the gold skins, Epic is becoming quite a good developer, amazing but true. They haven’t really had an event either, so that would have been a little ridiculous. I mean I guess there might be an event this month but usually data miners find out about events like a month in advance.

Uhhhhh, what? You still have to do the exact same amount of work to get the items. Just because you personally decide to play the game 12 hours a day because you think you need to rush through everything doesn’t change the overall amount of time everyone has to put in. So in other words you need to lay off the drugs.

The point of a battle pass is to get you to keep paying so you CAN get all the rewards every season. If you don’t like that then why are you buying it in the first place? Once the season is over anyone who didn’t take the time to get the rewards can never obtain them, that is what gives them exclusivity, and it has been that way since season 1. Ugh, some people….

I want a new season too, but i’m betting if Epic is taking a whole another month there is gonna be huge updates. In other words just be patient and play another game if bored. Epic has worked their butts off since Chapter 1 Season 1 to make battle royals an amazing experience

Like this is what the game needed, when the game is dying and a lot of people are leaving the game. A really bad move from FORTNITE. #RIP_Fortnite
