Season 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2 was supposed to come on April 30, but a few weeks prior, the developer of the game announced an extension. Then, that season was set to conclude on June 4, and then June 11. In the light of the ongoing protests in the United States related to the murder of George Floyd, they have announced plans to push things back once again. Apparently, Season 3 will now start on June 17 and the main event preceding it has also been delayed as a result.
There has been a few unexpected Season 2 content in order to keep you busy in the meantime, as well as the Doomsday event that could have major implications for Season 3 itself.
So when does the new season or the Season 3 of Fortnite start? The new season or the Season 3 of Fortnite is launching on June 17, immediately after the end of the Season 2. Until the new date, Battle Pass challenges are available to complete. As for The Device event which is known as the Doomsday event, it will take place on June 15.
What can you do in the game while you wait? Prior to the launch of the Season 3, there will be some sort of Doomsday event happening. This one is officially called The Deice. Just like the release of Season 3, it was also pushed back from May 30 to June 6, and has most recently been delayed to June 15. While the additional wait is definitely going to be hard for the most dedicated players, it should also make the eventual revelation that much more satisfying. The creator of Fortnite named Epic Games has hit a home run on most of these map changing events so far.

It is clearly not the first time Epic Games has extended a season of Fortnite. In the past, Season 2 was similarly extended by a few weeks from its original December 2019 and date into February 2020. During that extra time, the developer held some events in the game, including a Star Wars Episode IX preview and a Harley Quinn crossover event.
