Our Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 release time page explains what time the next season of the game will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The second season of Fortnite’s second chapter is very nearly upon us, and it’s been a long time coming. This season was extended making it the longest in Fortnite’s history, and it certainly feels a like we’re due a refresh.
Well thankfully, we won’t have to wait much longer! Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is just around the corner and below you’ll find out when it’s launching on every platform, so you can stuck in as soon as the new content goes live.
What is the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 release time?
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 will be released on Thursday, February 20th. Downtime usually begins around 9:00am UTC/4am ET/1:00am PT/9:00am BST and concludes a few hours later, so expect things to go live between 11:00am - 12:00pm UTC.
What can we expect from this new season?
According to Fortnite’s official news post, update 11.50 transitioned the game to Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics system. While this currently has had any major impact on the game’s core mechanics, perhaps it signals a new mode or feature to be introduced with Chapter 2 Season 2?
Of course it’s all speculation, but the move to a new physics engine would seem to line up nicely with all the teasers Epic Games has been trickling out onto its social media feeds lately.
An explosive, heist, or spy theme seems to be apparent from the gold and black aesthetic, to the cryptic, redacted messages and images of masks, dynamite and the like. Below we’ve linked a handful of the teaser released so far:
