Fortnite Chapter 2 season one extended to February by Epic Games

Epic Games has confirmed Fortnite Chapter Two’s first season will be extended, promising a feast of new features before its conclusion.

The developer revealed Fortnite’s current season will now last until February 2020, making it the longest season in the game yet.  

“Last year we celebrated 14 Days of Fortnite over the holidays,” Epic wrote in a blog post. “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. Get ready for winter!” 

Chapter 2’s first season was originally listed to expire in mid-December, with many expecting changes to the map to coincide with the holiday season.  

Many might be disappointed there won’t be a significant shake-up to the Fortnite map but considering Chapter Two marked a huge shift for the title – it's easy to see why they’d perhaps let it linger a little longer.  

What exactly these new features and the "live experience" in the pipeline will be is unknown (aside from obviously revolving around Christmas), but we imagine the updates will begin to start rolling out in early December. 

Epic Games delivered their biggest update yet to Fortnite with Chapter Two in October this year, revealing a brand new map after a black hole swallowed up the original - making the game temporarily unplayable for a few days.
