As many players had predicted, Epic Games announced that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 has been extended.

There probably weren’t too many people who didn’t see this coming. The combination of everything going on in the real world and the fact that Chapter 2 Season 1 lasted five months seemed to be more than enough to signal an inevitable Season 2 extension.

Chapter 2 Season 2 was set to end on April 30 at the end of the month, kicking off the third season of the second chapter at the same time, but that’s obviously no longer the case.

Season 2 will now go on past April 30, according to Epic Games.

On April 14, Epic released a blog post that informed players they wouldn’t be releasing Season 3 on April 30 as first planned.

Instead, Epic have pushed the start date for Season 3 to June 4 – over one month after the originally scheduled release date.

In the meantime, Epic has promised fans “multiple game updates on the way that will deliver fresh gameplay, new Challenges, bonus XP, and a couple more surprises.”

Epic’s “plan” to release Chapter 3 on June 4 could be subject to change, however.

The blog post also said that Epic’s “plan” is to release Season 3 on June 4, which means that date is subject to change. Hopefully, the devs mean it when they say they have some new content in the works during the downtime.

Chapter 2, Season 1, was generally considered by players to be one of the most boring times in Fortnite’s history when it comes to new content. For the five months of the first season, all we had was the Harpoon Gun, Winterfest, and a Star Wars event to hold us over.

Season 2 though has already proven to be much more exciting, with both map changes, new items, and the new helicopters added to the game, making things much more entertaining than Season 1.

Helicopters have added a whole new dimension to Season 2.

With the new end date pushed back more than a month, hopefully, Epic has more new content coming to keep Season 2 from eventually becoming dull as well.

However, since there’s more time left in Season 2 this gives players longer to max-out their golden skins, which is very good news for those who might not be able to sink hours into grinding away every day.


TimTheTatman rage quits after finding three fishing rods in Fortnite

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
