The Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 start date has yet to be explicitly confirmed, but teasers for the upcoming season suggest it will begin in the very near future. Here's what we know about the start date for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Start Date

Fortnite seasons typically last around 10 weeks from start to finish, with the following season arriving on live servers the same day the previous one ends. That 10-week schedule would have ended Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 in late December, in the middle of the Christmas holiday.

Instead, Epic Games extended the season for an unspecified number of weeks just ahead of its scheduled end date. At the time, the extension set the new end date for early February.

Epic Games gave players their first hint at the Chapter 2 Season 2 start date Monday, when the developer released a teaser for the upcoming season. Although much of the teaser remains mysterious, the date Feb. 20, 2020 was presented without mystery. As a result, it's likely Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 will begin Thursday, Feb. 20.
