Fortnite game developer Epic Games has announced an extension to Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1.
In a blog post on Epic Games’ official website, the developers announced that Fornite Chapter 2’s first season has been extended for an additional two months, continuing through to February 2020.
The announcement was made as a short preview for the upcoming holiday events planned for the game in the remainder of the current season. In the short post, Epic Games explained why they had decided to extend the season, suggesting that it’s completely down to the number of holiday content they have planned.
They said: “With a new year comes new beginnings! Last year, we celebrated 14 Days of Fortnite over the holidays. This year we’ve got even more content for you to unwrap, including new game features, free rewards and a live experience that you don’t want to miss.
“To prepare for all the new holiday-themed updates, we will be extending Chapter 2’s first season into early February. Get ready for winter!”
Last year, the 14 Days of Fortnite event launched in December and ran through the Christmas holidays. During that time, several updates were added to the game to provide players with additional content over the period, including daily challenges.
The announcement has led many to wonder what holiday-themed updates will be added to the game. There’s no doubt that some of the planned content will include holiday-themed skins, but many fans are hoping for more, particularly after last year’s event.
Many fans have criticised the decision for the extension and expressed disappointment at no major updates before the end of 2019. Other users, however, were thrilled with the announcement for giving them additional time to complete any outstanding challenges from the current season.
Fortnite in the News
News of the extension comes just one week after it was revealed that Epic Games was suing a second games tester for leaking information about Fortnite Chapter 2. As we reported, the developer filed a claim against a game tester in Canada last month after he was allegedly caught sharing details about the major game update.
The first game tester was sued in October after the developer filed a complaint in North Carolina over a tester who used Twitter to leak official information about the Chapter 2 update ahead of its launch.
More recently, it was revealed that famous Fortnite YouTuber Faze Jarvis had been permanently banned from the game after he was caught using cheating software to kill enemies in his videos. Epic Games issued a ban against the player, and Jarvis later released an emotional YouTube video apologising for his actions.
The Fortnite developers have a lot of holiday-themed content planned for players and with Christmas fast approaching, it’ll only be a matter of weeks before the firm officially shares details of what we can expect over the Christmas period, so make sure you check back to find out more.
