Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4: New Season Will Not Be Delayed

A new season is never late, nor is it early. It arrives precisely when it means to.

Despite the current Fortnite season being delayed more times than a writer putting off starting a new article, it seems this has not had an effect on future seasons.

Chapter 2 Season 3 has had players on tenterhooks as the water levels have receded, revealing more and more of the new map.

However, the best addition this season is definitely the cars - and the playlists that blast over their radios!

Here's everything we know about Season 4, including the start date and confirmation of no delays.

Fortnite data miner ShiinaBR confirmed that Season 4 will be hitting our games on time, despite multiple delays to Season 3's start.

Here's their tweet in full:

"According to the latest In-Game news update, Season 3 will NOT be extended," they explain. "There have been several rumours about this lately, but the season is now confirmed to end on August 27."

The confirmation that Season 3 will end on time, and on August 27, is huge news for Fortnite players who are ready to change things up again.

If there's one thing Fortnite isn't, it's stale. Read on to find out what changes are coming:

As Season 3 is confirmed by ShiinaBR to be finishing on August 27, we expect the new season to start right away.

Expect Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 at the end of August - it's only a couple of weeks away!

We don't know a lot at this stage, but there will likely be some map changes, and definitely a new Battle Pass with skins and emotes to unlock.

However, fans are predicting Thor to appear as a secret skin.

This is based off some datamined assets which resemble the marks Thor leaves when he teleports around the Bifrost in the MCU films.

It would also tie in with the Marvel's Avengers game coming a week after the new season starts.

We know Virgin Media customers get an exclusive Avengers skin, but maybe Fortnite players will access an exclusive skin which bridges across both games?

It seems unlikely, but you never know!
