With many fans arguing Fortnite’s regular content drops are slowing down, here’s when to expect a Season 3 update, and when the current Season 2 of Chapter 2 will come to an end. 

It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly 6 months since the black hole swallowed Fortnite’s first chapter, and spat back out Fortnite Chapter 2. Despite initially being praised as the savior of Fortnite, many fans argue that the length of Chapter 2: Season 1 caused the game to lag back into uninspired.

Starting back in October of 2019, Season 1 finally came to a conclusion on February 20, nearly 5 and a half months after it started. In that time, many players argued that new content dried up, and the game became stale. However, as is customary, Season 2 brought with it new content and now, a month on, some players are thinking forwards to what Season 3 will bring, and when it will drop.

Epic Games Season 2 released in February 2020 with a whole host of changes.

When does Fortnite Season 3 start?

Despite the length of Season 1, the second season is not set to last nearly as long. Season 2 is set to end on April 30, 2020. However, this could be subject to delays depending on a whole host of factors.

Regardless, provided there are no drastic shifts in Epic’s scheduling, we can expect Season 2 to wrap up by the end of April.

Using past seasons as a template, it’s therefore pretty safe to assume that Season 3 will commence immediately after this, on May 1, 2020.

However, given the current global situation, a delay to Season 3 seems more likely than other seasons. It will almost entirely depend on how well Epic Games are able to cope, in terms of staff attendance and other obvious factors that have recently become issues.

Regardless of whether or not Season 3 is pushed back, you can expect some Overtime Challenges to be added as we approach the end of Season 2.
