Epic Games knows how to keep its popular battle royale alive, continually bringing new, exciting content and features to the next update to Fortnite. These additions include a new map, points of interest, weapons, skins, and more. So, it's no surprise players keep returning to the battle royale game.

However, with Fortnite Chapter 5 currently in full swing, many players wonder what the next update might have in store. But more importantly, players are left with the burning question: "When will Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 start?" That's where we come in!

Server Downtime Notice: The next Fortnite server downtime is expected to happen on 23 April 2024 for the v29.30 update. Kindly refer to the Fortnite server downtime page for detailed updates.

Epic Games likes to keep the date and time of the next Fortnite season a surprise. However, according to the date indicated on the Battle Pass, Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 will go into downtime on 24 May 2024 at 3 a.m. ET. There is no confirmed live event.

That means that Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 (v30.00) will be available to play later that same day on 24 May 2024, presumably from around 6-8 a.m. ET after the server downtime has concluded.

It's typical for Fortnite to experience server downtime shortly before Epic Games rolls out new updates — so expect matchmaking to be temporarily disabled and the Fortnite servers not responding for several hours. This usually happens from 3-4 a.m. to 6-8 a.m. ET (7 a.m. to 11 a.m. UTC), but it may begin earlier or later for any number of reasons.

However, once the server maintenance period is over, the next update of Fortnite will be live to play. Please note that Epic Games could change the start date and times at any moment; in this regard, we will update this article with the appropriate changes.

And that's about it, I think. We will update this article with new information regarding the next Fortnite season's start date and time, so you might want to bookmark this article for easy future reference (you're welcome).
