Fortnite Chapter 4 Season OG release date and Season 4 ending
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is about to end, and Epic Games has something very exciting lined up for what comes next.
With Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 coming to an end, we can look ahead to Season 5. Well, not exactly, as things are a little bit complicated this time around. Thankfully, the battle royale title always lists when the current season is going to end, so we do now know when to expect the new season.
Here’s everything you need to know about when Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 ends, when Season 5 / OG Chapter 1 starts, and what to expect. As we draw closer to the new season’s launch, we’ll be sure to update this page with exact timings. For now, here’s what Epic has said about Fortnite’s next season so far.
When does the current season of Fortnite end?
The Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 end date and time is November 3 at 2AM ET. This is listed on the Battle Pass page currently live in the game. It’s worth noting that last season’s timings shifted by a couple of days just before the new one was supposed to arrive, so timings here are subject to change. The best place to keep up on specific updates closer to the launch of the new season is the Fortnite Status Twitter account. We’ll be sure to keep this page up to date as well.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season OG release date
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season OG will launch on November 3, 2023. The thing to remember about new Fortnite seasons and chapters is that there is always a period of downtime after one ends. This down time makes the next season’s exact start time a little tricky to predict as it can range from a couple of hours – as was the case last season – to multiple days, which has happened between chapters before.
Given that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 is actually a new version of an OG Chapter 1 map, we’re in uncharted waters somewhat. Not much info has been given as to how long this new season will last, or what to expect in terms of downtime. What we do know is that on November 3, 2023, there will indeed be a new season of Fortnite.
What to expect from the next Fortnite season
Epic has revealed that Chapter 4 Season 5 is actually something of a throwback season to Fortnite 2018. It’s officially called Chapter 4 Season OG, though we don’t quite know how long it’ll last. Regardless, expect to jump into a version of the Fortnite Chapter 1 map on November 3, 2023, complete with the original loot pool, some veghicles including the Hoverboard and Baller, as well as a whole new Battle Pass.
