Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2 looks to run for another 10 weeks, according to an in-game message, but it’s possible it could be extended.
Fortnite Chapter 1 – Season 2 was the longest running season in the history of the battle royale game. It seems the follow-up chapter will not be as long.
An in-game message (via GamesRadar) explaining Epic’s refund policy for the Battle Pass states that Fortnite Chapter 2- Season 2 will end on April 30, 2020, or just a little over two months away. Epic Games has not officially announced an end date to the current season, which kicked off last Thursday, February 20.
Fortnite‘s seasons are typically scheduled for 10 weeks but do tend to go a little over due to delays and development time. In doing so, players are afforded a few extra days and sometimes special Challenges to help complete their Battle Pass.
An April 30 end date wouldn’t allow for any overtime challenges, so I think the date is being used more as more of an established, clear cutoff for refunds than signifying the end of the current season. I think expected the next major season to begin in mid-May seems a bit more realistic.
As previously revealed, this season’s theme revolves around spies and features a brand new Battle Pass filled with new skins and cosmetic rewards. New to this season are final missions that are unlocked when you complete the weekly challenges. This final mission has you side with either the Ghost or Shadow faction and grants you a faction-exclusive style for each of the outfits in the Battle Pass.
Beyond the new Battle Pass hub, some NPC henchmen and mythic weapons, a few map updates and some unvaulted weapons, Fortnite hasn’t really changed a whole lot with Chapter 2 – Season 2.
Of course, with at least 10 weeks to the current season, we can expect the typical Epic tweaks and live updates to keep the season feeling fresh. Are you enjoying the current theme of Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2?
