Fortnite Chapter 2 rocked the world when its dramatic launch spelled the end for gamers around the world, but now it could be shocking the internet once again as it has been extended into February 2020.
Fortnite Chapter 2 arrived after the now-famous 'The End' event finale, left players in a state of panic and confusion. Much to the displeasure of many, players were left staring at a black hole that refused to budge after the end of Season X. During the live Fortnite event we saw the seven visitors launch through multiple rifts and they ultimately crashed into the "Zero Point" which was nestled in Loot Lake.
After this, players were sucked out of the map and now everyone is stuck in a black hole loading screen which was assumed to be the downtime for Chapter 2.
Fortnite Chapter 2, formerly believed to be Fortnite Season 11, features a host of new modes and changes to entice fans and improve the game state. After an extended downtime after the end of Season X, players have been enjoying the return to form for Fortnite.
When Has Season 1 Been Extended To?
Well known Fortnite Leaker @Lucas7yoshi has informed us via Twitter that the debut season for Chapter 2 has been extended until February 6th 2020.
While digging through the files on PC, it clearly shows the season beginning date of the 14th October 2019 and now that season end on the 6th February 2020.
This has recently been confirmed on the official Fortnite website, as they mention a new festive event, which has resulted in this extension (to allow for these updates).
Typically Fortnite seasons last about 10 weeks, now this one is set to last over 16 weeks! Could this be a new norm for Fortnite? Opting to go for longevity within a season and ensure that they have more time to prepare for the next season.
