A release date leak suggests Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 5 will officially begin in the first week of December.

Such information is presently making the rounds despite the fact that Epic Games has yet to confirm a launch date for Chapter 3 Season 4.

However, Fortnite players expect the next major shift to begin in mid-September since the current Battle Pass concludes on September 17.

The theme of Fortnite’s fourth season remains a mystery, as well. According to leakers, though, a Marvel crossover will not sit at the forefront as it did with Chapter 2 Season 4.

Fortnite Season 5 release date reportedly leaked

Industry insider Tom Henderson, best known for Battlefield and Call of Duty leaks, has apparently outed the due date for Fortnite’s upcoming fifth season.

According to a post that Henderson shared this morning, Season 5 will kick off later this year on December 5.

The timing of the report is especially interesting, since Epic Games has yet to confirm its launch plans for Season 4.

As always, fans would do well to take uncorroborated information with a pinch of salt. Henderson’s reported December 2022 release date for Fortnite Season 5 does not sound too farfetched, however.

Notably, Chapter 2 Season 5 went live across all platforms on December 2, 2020. And Chapter 3 debuted late last year on December 5, 2021.

The real question, of course, is what the theme for Season 5 will entail. But since similar details about the next major update currently remain under lock and key, such information isn’t expected to surface for quite some time.
