Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 was originally planned to be released on May 1 2020 but was postponed until June 4, 2020. At the time, Epic Games had not clarified why it postponed the release date for the new season.
This time, the reason behind this is the ongoing protests in the US. Epic Games announced via its blog post that the teams “need to focus on themselves, their families and their communities”. It added that the live event named ‘The Device’ and Season 3 has been extended to 15 June and 17 June respectively. Before this event and Fortnite Season, 3 was pushed forward once in April and the second time last week. Apart from this, many other companies have also decided to block their respective updates and upcoming content for some time.
Report from The Verge came out, according to which the live event and Chapter 2 Season 3 were postponed until 6 June and 11 June respectively. Even then, Epic Games did not give a reason for the delay, but it was believed that the coronavirus epidemic was the reason behind it.
