Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7: Release date, info, leaks, more

Fortnite is currently in it's sixteenth season, more commonly referred to as Chapter 2: Season 6. Released on 16th March, Season 6 brought with it its usual batch of new content with big map changes, a shaking up of the loot pool, and new mechanics in the form of weapon crafting and animal taming.

And while Season 6 has just begun and has a while to run yet, it never hurts to look forward and get excited about what comes next, namely in Chapter 2: Season 7.

What new content we will get in Season 7, at the moment at least, is anyone's guess. As we don't really have any leaks as there are approx. three months left of Season 6.

But this is just the start of the journey and we will continue to update this page as we get more information.

Until then here is everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 7.

When will Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 7 begin?

Seasons in Fortnite don't have a fix end date, some have been longer and shorter than others. The longest before Chapter 2 Season 1 which ran for 128 days or just over 18 weeks.

But usually, they run for around 3 months or 12 weeks, and based on the Season 6 start date of 16th March, that means Chapter 7 will be released on or around the 8th June.

What will be in Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 7?

As we mentioned before, there is really not much information about what we can expect in June, other than going off past precedents as there have been no leaks and there likely won't be for a while yet.

What we do know for certain is there will be some pretty drastic map changes, a new battle pass, and at least one or two new mechanics ala animal taming and weapon crafting.

NPCs and bosses are firmly within the game and are going nowhere so that will likely continue. Could we see NPCs that can be controlled and act in our interests e.g attacking an opponent? Maybe.

What we can also guarantee is a shaking up of the loot pool. Season 6 saw the Pump Shotgun unvaulted to the delight of many and Season 7 will undoubtedly change what weapons are available to players.


We will update this page with more information as it becomes available.
