When does the new season of Fortnite come out? It's not an unusual question, especially now as Fortnite Season 5 seems to be dragging on. Typically, a season in Fortnite lasts for around 10 weeks, with a few weeks allocated for overtime if needed. Although, longer seasons are now becoming more standard.
For Season 5, Agent Jonesy has made it their mission to gather the best hunters from across multiple universes - all to ensure that nobody leaves the Loop. Some of the biggest names that we have seen pop up on The Island include The Mandalorian and Snake Eyes. Even so, the Zero Point has yet to reveal just what lies in store next.
When Does the New Season of Fortnite Come Out?
So, when does Season 6 actually begin? Well, according to the in-game Battle Pass screen, Season 5 will continue until around March 16. Whether this will be exact is still up for debate. It is generally understood that Season 6 is more like to start the week beginning March 15, 2021.
This will mean that Season 5 will have a running time of 15 weeks! While definitely beyond the generally agreed overtime, it will still not be the longest season. That title is held by Season 2, which continued for 17 weeks.
