Fortnite data miners have found the scheduled end date of Season 1 in the game files, it looks like we could be in for a Merry Christmas!

Sure, it may feel like it’s too early to be talking about the new season. Didn’t Chapter 2 just start? But actually, at this point we are more than halfway through the inaugural season on Fortnite’s new map, time goes fast.

Well, now it seems like we can know when to expect Season 1 to end. Fortnite leaker “Lucas7yoshi” has tweeted a discovery, showing that the season will end on December 12th/13th. He also predicts that this means the new season will be Christmas/winter themed.

So, Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 may well be just what you need to get in the festive spirit this year. Based off of previous years we may see parts of the map (or all of it) coated with snow, Christmas trees popping up all over and supply drops dressed as presents. No doubt some popular Christmas skins will return and some new ones as well.

Aside from the Christmas theme, many players will be excited for Season 2 for a different reason. So far in Chapter 2, updates have been somewhat barebones, and we haven’t been given the usual amount of new content that we have become accustomed to. In some ways this is a good thing, competitive Fortnite is in the best state it has been for a long time, and the loot pool is more balanced than ever. However, the lack of changes has left some people feeling a bit bored, and YouTube creators lost for ideas.

It is very possible that Epic Games have been trying to mirror the simplicity of Chapter 1 Season 1. For a long time now, players have been asking to go back to this more basic state. Personally, I love it, but for sure a couple of rotation items could be great. Season 2 may well be where we go back to the regularly scheduled programming, and if done well this could bring a new zest to Fortnite.

Whatever happens, it looks like you have less than a month remaining to enjoy the current season. Get some games in, get your challenges done, and get excited for Christmas!
