Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is approaching its end. Here’s all that we think about Season 2 alongside a touch of theory.
This period of Fortnite is the longest in history by a wide edge. Before Season 1, the longest period of Fortnite kept going 83 days. This was the two Seasons 7 and 9.
On the off chance that the end date of Season 1 remains the equivalent, it will complete on February 20, around about fourteen days from when this is being composed. At the point in the end, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 will have kept going 128 days.
Fortnite players are eagerly anticipating a new season. Streamers have resorted to hosting near-daily fashion shows because of the lack of content. Patches have been stale and interest in the game might be at an all-time low.

Epic undoubtedly knows this and will surely pick things up with Season 2. So, here’s everything that we know so far.
Season 2 start date
We have the official ending of Fortnite Season 1: February 20, 2019. Will this be the beginning of Season 2 as well?

We don’t know for sure, but it’s safe to assume that Season 2 will begin as soon as Season 1 ends. February 20 is a Thursday, which is the traditional day that seasons of Fortnite begin and end. We could see some downtime between seasons, but that’s likely out of the question at this point.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 update
We don’t have a ton of information as to what’s coming with Fortnite Season 2. The only thing that we know for sure is the shift to the Unreal Chaos physics engine. This change may come before Season 2 begins, however.

In a blog post, Epic told the community that the new engine would go live in early February, which points to a v11.50 patch as soon as this week. They also wrote that they wanted to make sure that “Fortnite still feels like Fortnite,” a line that made streamers Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan nervous.
Apart from that, everything is speculative. Players are predicting additional mobility, land vehicles, and new weapons. These predictions are informed and realistic, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.
Taking us into Season 2
Epic has confirmed that they have some plans to fill the two weeks between now and Chapter 2 Season 2. They mentioned some additional Overtime challenges and rewards, along with the v11.50 update that is nearly guaranteed to significantly change the game.

We also saw some leaks that point to a Fortnite X Birds of Prey crossover with a Harley Quinn skin coming the weekend of February 6. Epic could add some new mechanics with this crossover.
Here’s a bit of speculation as well: I’m predicting that Epic will give us another Share the Love event. Last year, following the release of Apex Legends, Epic gave us a batch of Overtime challenges that allowed us to receive a free Battle Pass for the next season.

Chapter 2 Season 1 has been so long that I expect Epic to do the same thing in the coming weeks. It’s a great way to bring returning players back and reward loyal fans for their continued support. The timing for its return is also perfect.
So, that’s just about all we know so far. Will there be an event to end the season? Will the map significantly change? Your guess is as good as mine.
