Epic Games confirmed that Fortnite Season 3 has been delayed, starting immediately after Season 2 wraps up on June 4. Epic said this delay was because it had “lots” of additional content in store for the game. This includes things like the Travis Scott-led Astronomical concert, the non-combative Party Royale mode, and more.
Fortnite has been a huge success for Epic Games since its Battle Royale launched in 2017. In the almost three years the game has been on the market, Fortnite has raked in $1 billion from mobile microtransactions alone. Of course, this figure does not take into account how well Fortnite has performed on consoles and PC. In April 2020 alone, Fortnite brought in $44.3 million and six million new installs.
In other Fortnite news, the game was recently confirmed as a launch title for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The two next-generation consoles are still on track to drop this holiday season despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
