Here’s when Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 (Season 11) ends.
After almost three full days of players staring at a black hole on their screen, Epic Games launch Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 or Season 11 on October 15th, 2019. Since then, there hasn’t been the usual buzz around the game due to what some perceive as lack of content and updates excluding the Fortnitemares 2019 event.
As always, Epic know in advance when a season will officially end. However, there have been numerous instances in the past where Epic have decided to extend a season much to display of the community. Here’s when Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 is expected to officially end.
When is Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 Ending
It’s been a pretty boring season so far, although the new map has been refreshing and well received by the majority of Fortnite players. With just the Harpoon Gun being the main addition since the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2, it’s hardly surprising players are waiting for the next season to arrive.
According to the official Fortnite website, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 (or Season 11, whatever you want to call it) will end on December 12th, 2019. That means this will be the shortest season Epic has released.
Fortnite seasons are usually at least 10 weeks long, however, Epic tend to extend them for at least a week. There’s also been a couple of seasons that have stretched to 12 weeks.
It’s likely Epic purposely is adding less content this season after working hard on a new map and new features including fishing and the ability to pick up downed players and yeet them off buildings.
With Christmas a couple weeks before the launch of Chapter 2, Season 2, it’s no surprise the new season will be in the lead up to Christmas. Last year, Epic employees had a deserved three week break during the Christmas period in which Epic released three content updates to keep players busy and entertained.
With a brand new season launching before children and adults head off for their festive break, it’s the perfect time for Epic to introduce a brand new season not only in terms of keeping players entertaining until employees return for their break, but releasing a brand new Battle Pass before Christmas will likely see Epic see more sales of their Battle Pass than ever before.
Either way, it’ll be interesting to see how Epic build on the successful launch of a new chapter. Hopefully, we can get some solid progress on the story for the new chapter, something which is currently lacking.
