What’s going on:
- Epic said Thursday that the third season of “Fortnite’s” second chapter has been pushed back another week and will begin on June 11.
- The third season was expected to begin earlier this year. The second season was supposed to end on April 30. It was pushed to June 4. No specific reasons were given for date change.
- The first season of “Fortnite’s” new chapter — which began after the game disappeared into a black hole — was extended by two months so that Epic could prepare for holiday events.
- The first season of the second chapter began in October 2019. The second season didn’t launch until February 2020.
What to expect:
- According to Games Radar, the new season will include “more water elements, as the many puddles appearing around the map suggest.”
- A one-time only event — called “The Device” — is scheduled for June 6 at 2 p.m. EDT. “Fornite” routinely hosts one-time events to draw interest to the game, such as the battle at the end of season nine and the Travis Scott concert.
