The longest season in Fortnite appears to have received a new extension from Epic Games. According to leaks, the end date for Chapter 2 Season 1 has reportedly been pushed from Feb. 6 until Feb. 20. This would mark yet another delay for Season 2 by Epic, yet no one knows why Fortnite isn’t transitioning into a new season.

It stands to reason that the developers simply don’t have everything ready for Season 2, but this does seem odd, as they’ve had nearly 4 months of Season 1 to prepare. The second chapter of Fortnite began on Oct. 15, giving players over 100 days in this season. Epic Games has yet to comment on the matter.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 carries on

At this point, even the most diehard fans are beginning to grow sick of Season 1. Fortnite made its name off fresh content and in-game events, and Season 1 has been severely lacking in those areas. Fans keep coming back to the game because of the new weapons, map changes, and new seasons. However, Season 1 seems like it will never end.

Now, according to multiple data-miners, Epic Games has changed the season’s end date from Feb. 6 to Feb. 20 in Fortnite‘s files. While not official, this is likely as close to a confirmation as we’ll see for now. Leakers @HYPEX and @ShiinaBR give us the scoop.


As you can see from their reactions, this is not a happy leak. The Fortnite community is also not thrilled about the delay, as most are beyond ready for a change of pace. It now seems we’ll have to wait another full month or so to see a new Battle Pass, new map locations, and a new season as a whole.

Of course, these are just leaks, so take everything with a grain of salt. Epic Games could still reverse course before the month is up, though it is unlikely.
