Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is the longest season in Fortnite history. There is an end in sight, but it might not be as close as you’d like it to be.
The Fortnite reboot of Chapter 2 was much-needed. Epic gave us a brand-new game, resetting the loot pool and introducing a whole new map for the first time.
That was in early October. Now, in January, players are beginning to get tired of this ‘fresh’ Fortnite season.
Epic made very few updates to Season 1. They added the Harpoon Gun, collaborated with Star Wars, and hosted Winterfest. That’s a far cry from the weekly updates to which we became accustomed.
Fortnite Season 1 was set to end in December, which would have followed the traditional two-month cycle of Fortnite seasons. Epic extended the season past the holidays – something we saw during last year’s update – but didn’t stop there.

Now, we’re looking at February 15 as the end date for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1. This is a Saturday, so we may see it delayed further into the next week to better fit the patch schedule.
What will we be doing for the rest of the season? Your guess is as good as mine. Winterfest ends on January 7 and the Star Wars crossover will go with it. We’ve seen some leaked Overtime challenges for Season 1 but that’s about it.
We would assume that Epic is bringing us more than just a few extra challenges for the next month-plus of content, but it remains to be seen. They could be saving up for a massive update with Season 2.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 grew relatively stale, but this mirrored the first-ever season of Fortnite. People forget that the first Fortnite season didn’t even have a Battle Pass. The reset will allow some of the returning items – such as mobility tools – to feel exciting again.
