When Does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 End? You've Now Got Some Extra Time

You'll have more time to complete this season's challenges.


Epic Games kicked off the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 last month, revamping the popular battle royale shooter with a new map and other big changes. The season was originally slated to end in early December, which would have made it shorter than a typical season, but Epic has now announced Season 1 is being extended into next year.

In a post on its official website, Epic explains that Chapter 2, Season 1 will now run until an unspecified point in February; a specific end date was not provided. The reason for this extension is that Epic plans to roll out a lot more content for the game over the next few months, which includes new events and some kind of "live experience." As the developer explains:

"Last year we celebrated 14 Days of Fortnite over the holidays. This year we've got even more content for you to unwrap, including new game features, free rewards and a live experience that you won't want to miss. To prepare for all the new holiday-themed updates, we will be extending Chapter 2's first season into early February."

This extension means that you have a lot more time to complete any outstanding challenges from this season. If you need help clearing any of the tasks available thus far, you can find maps and guides for all the trickier missions in our complete Fortnite Chapter 2 challenges roundup. It's unclear if more standard weekly challenges will be introduced with the extension of the season.
