Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 has been around for quite a while now, and many players are starting to wonder when it will end, and when the next season will begin. Here’s everything we know so far.
The latest season of Fortnite, simply titled Cubed, saw the return of the mysterious Kevin the Cube and a brand new phenomenon called the Sideways, an alternate dimension filled with Cube Monsters that players need to defeat to get powerful weapons.
There’s plenty of new content for gamers to get stuck into, including the return of Punchcards, but how long is there to enjoy everything Season 8 has to offer before it comes to an end? And what’s the deal with Season 9? Is there even going to be one?
We’re going to answer all those questions and more below, so read on to find out everything you need to know about the future of Fortnite.
Fortnite Season 8 is expected to come to an end on Saturday, December 4, 2021, at 1pm PT.
Although the current season’s Battle Pass is scheduled to expire on December 5, a chapter-ending live event known as The End has been announced for the day before, meaning this date is no longer relevant.
Of course, there’s a chance that Epic Games will delay this end date if they don’t have everything ready for the following season, but that hasn’t happened in quite a while, so fingers crossed they stay on schedule.
While it would make sense for Chapter 2 Season 8 to go into Chapter 2 Season 9, which is what happened in Chapter 1, Epic Games have confirmed that we’ll actually be going straight into Chapter 3 next.
This means there won’t be a Chapter 2 Season 9 – instead, we’ll have a whole new chapter to look forward to, hopefully with an entirely new map!
Fortnite Chapter 3 is expected to begin on Tuesday, December 7, 2021.
Considering the Chapter 2 Season 8 finale event takes place on December 4, it seems likely that there will be a few days of downtime between the chapters, which could be another ‘Black Hole’-style scenario.
