When Does Fortnite: Chapter 4 – Season 2 Start? (UPDATED)

If you’re looking for a game that never stays the same for too long, few can match Fortnite in terms of sheer output. Four chapters in, many are looking forward to seeing how they build upon the promising first season of the fourth chapter, but when should you expect Fortnite: Chapter 4 – Season 2, otherwise known as MEGA, to start?

The answer is: on Friday, March 10th, 2023. Season 1 will go into downtime on March 10th at 2AM ET, then come back on March 10th several hours later as Season 2.

This is contrary to the common belief surrounding Season 1 ending, which had been scheduled for March 8th.

As for what to expect from the new season, a lot of it has already been leaked — at least through word of mouth. While it’s strongly believed that first-person will be introduced, we know more concretely that Eren Yeager will be in the Battle Pass to coincide with the final season of Attack on Titan.


Other leaks are numerous, with Lucky Landing reportedly making a return and the map getting a more Neo-Tokyo look. As well as that, players should expect new weapons (including a katana, finally) on top of new motorcycles and extra ways of getting around the island.

On March 6th, we had our first look at MEGA, which seems to confirm the Japanese style that was previously leaked.

Since then, Epic have confirmed there will some kind of lizard character as part of the next season while also releasing a bunch of teasers over on their Instagram that shows off some of the new cosmetics and items coming to the game.

While Chapter 4 started off strongly and then settled into a bit of a lull due to the storyline not really progressing, that will no doubt change. The Seven are scattered and nowhere to be seen, and a new threat is never far away when it comes to this eternally embattled island. One thing’s for certain: you can expect a lot of crossovers.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
