It appears that not only season 2 but also Fortnite’s season 3 will face a delay. The developer Epic Games has announced this today, Tuesday, stirring out the start of Season 3 all the way to June 4.
The official announcement was posted on Epic Games’ official Fortnite website, in which the following stands:
We’re extending Chapter 2 – Season 2 of Fortnite beyond the original April 30 date. Our plan is to launch Chapter 2 – Season 3 on June 4.
Before then, there’s lots of content coming in the current Season. We have multiple game updates on the way that will deliver fresh gameplay, new Challenges, bonus XP, and a couple more surprises up our sleeve!
As we said, this is not the first time Epic Games decides to delay a Season in Fortnite. Back before the start of Season 2, Epic Games delayed its beginning date for multiple times. At first, it was scheduled for two weeks, for later that period to be extended.
