Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 is now officially confirmed to be delayed and it will be released a little later than expected, giving players several extra days to complete the Season 2 Battle Passes.
Through its official website, Epic Games announced that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 has been extended by a week, with Season 3 now scheduled to release on Thursday, June 11 instead of June 4. “In an effort to get everything ready for Chapter 2 – Season 3, we’re extending Season 2 by one week. The new launch day of Season 3 will be Thursday, June 11,” the post says.
The company also confirmed that there will be a “one-time-only live event called The Device, now scheduled for Saturday, June 6 at 2 PM ET.” Epic also wants players to reserve their places half an hour in advance as the space is limited. The event will only take place once, so if you miss it you will not be able to see it again.
Recall that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 was actually scheduled to release on April 30. The current season includes a Deadpool skin, just like other members of the X-Force. The entire season had a spy theme for the Battle Pass skins, as well as the map and events around the world. In addition, there was a Travis Scott in-game concert, we saw a trailer of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, and there was a Party Royale concert.
For the time being, Epic has not yet announced much about the new season. So we will have to wait for more information, but we already know that Fortnite will release on the new generation of consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X.
