Talking about the next Fortnite season is definitely too early. Chapter 3 – Season 4 was released less than two weeks ago, with players still figuring it out and trying to get wins.
However, despite the new season, we already have some leaks about the next one. According to insiders, the next Fortnite season could bring Chapter 4, which would be quite a shock.
There are also leaks regarding the exact release date, which point out that the next season could have downtime that lasts for two days. If this turns out to be true, there is a good chance that Epic Games will release a new chapter.
This article will reveal everything we know about what is going to be either Chapter 3 – Season 5, or Chapter 4 – Season 1. Let’s check out the leaks!
Next Fortnite season could be in Chapter 4
As soon as the Chapter 3 – Season 4 Battle Pass was released, many players found out when the next Fortnite season will start. Epic Games is transparent about this information and doesn’t hide it from Fortnite players.
It turns out that Chapter 3 – Season 4 will end on Saturday, December 3. However, Tom Henderson, a popular insider claims that the new season will begin on Monday, December 5.
Listening to the insider’s information over Epic Games wouldn’t be a smart idea. However, Tom Henderson has leaked a lot of important information in the past and definitely has reputable sources.
It’s important to note that Epic simply stated when the current Fortnite season will end. If there are no unexpected delays, this could mean that we are looking at downtime that will last for two days.
Only one downtime has lasted longer than a day, and that was the downtime that ended Chapter 1. During this period, players started at the Black Hole for a day and a half, which was one of the most incredible things Epic has ever done.
Will there be Fortnite Chapter 3 – Season 5?
Despite the rumors of the next Fortnite season bringing Chapter 4, this is very unlikely. We are only in the fourth season of the current chapter and most of the seasons have been relatively short.
The first chapter of Fortnite Battle Royale lasted for more than two years, just like Chapter 2. Chapter 3, on the other hand, has not even turned one yet. It was released on December 5, 2021, and the release of the next season will be its first anniversary.
The storyline of the current chapter is nowhere near done. The Paradigm and The Seven have mentioned “The Nothing,” which is most likely a new threat that will appear very soon.
Due to this, we expect the current chapter to have a few more seasons. Fortnite Chapter 4 will be released at some point, but its release date is most likely either in late 2023 or early 2024.
