As Fortnite players work their way through Chapter 2 Season 6, the question of when Chapter 2 Season 7 will start is bound to crop up.
Not only does it connect to the question of when Chapter 2 Season 6 will end, it also brings with it the exciting idea of continuing the storyline we’ve been seeing in the game and learning more about characters like the Foundation.
To help simplify things a little, we’ve put together a quick guide that runs through when Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 will start.
Update 6/2/2021: Epic Games provided a confirmed start date for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, indicating Season 7 will begin on June 8, 2021. Original article is as follows...
When Does Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 Start?
The quick answer to the question of when Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 will start is we don’t know for sure. Epic Games has yet to provide an exact start date for Chapter 2 Season 7 as we’ve still got a fair amount of time left to work through the Battle Pass for Season 6.
With that being said, the Battle Pass does give us a clue as to when Chapter 2 Season 7 will start though. Currently, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 is scheduled to run until Tuesday, June 8 according to information accompanying the Season 6 Battle Pass.
Looking at the start date for Season 6, that fell on Tuesday, March 16. Connecting the dots, it sounds likely that Season 7 would begin right after Season 6 ends on June 8. Keep in mind that life is unpredictable, and this potential start date is not set in stone.
Epic Games could potentially extend Season 6 if there are bugs or issues that need ironing out before Season 7 can begin. We don't expect this, but we wanted to point it out as crazier things have happened.
Anyway, there's plenty of time left before June 8 for announcements and teasers from Epic Games to come out regarding Season 7, so we expect to know more about when exactly Season 7 will begin in the coming weeks.
Until then, we’re expecting Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 to begin on June 8 following the conclusion of Season 6. Be sure to check back for an exact start date and time once that information is revealed by Epic Games.
