In terms of how long players will have to wait before Fortnite is playable again will depend on how long the screen will remain present in-game. We discuss possible outcomes of how long servers will be down and when they’ll come back online for Fortnite.
Why does the Fortnite loading screen say "To be continued"?
When the Collision live event ended, millions of players were treated to a mushroomed loading screen with the emphatic words, “To Be Continued.” This message is displayed after you assisted Agent Jones and The Foundation with their pursuit of Geno, which resulted in a large device exploding.
Much of the island remains intact as many speculated the event’s culmination would result in new areas and Points of Interest being revealed. Instead, a loading screen filled with shades of blue and purple and a giant mushroom appeared, signaling the end of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2.
However, everyone wants to know the burning question: when does the next season start?
- Fortnite servers not responding - When will servers come back up?
- How to get Pac-Man items in Fortnite - Chapter 3 Season 2
- Fortnite Gen Hoshino Soundwave Series - How to Watch, Schedule, and Content
- Fortnite Week 11 Resistance quests - Chapter 3 Season 2
While the loading screen indeed has some beautiful calming music to treat players in the meantime, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 will start when the servers are restored online on 5th June 2022. However, the times these servers will come back on have yet to be determined.
Since the Fortnite servers will only go online once the next season update is fully integrated, servers could be down for as long as 12 hours instead of the atypical two to three-hour outages for server maintenance. You can follow the Fortnite Status Twitter account for live updates and announcements ahead of the new season.
Many Fortnite players have been discussing this online for much longer; however, they’ll have to wait for the arrival of the next season, as the answer isn’t definitive as of writing.
Epic Games has released the Cinematic and Gameplay trailers for the upcoming season, which featured new cosmetics, the return of building, and the ominous presence of the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader.
