Fortnite Chapter 2 stared a few months ago. The game has been through a lot and Fortnite Season 10 was considered as one of the worst seasons to date, and some of the players are arguing whether it was the worst season or not. Regardless, Chapter 2 came with a lot of promise. Until now we have seen some improvements in the game. Sure, Fortnite does have some changes but it was not very big. Even the new map was criticized when broken down to pieces. Epic Games was going through some hard times and had to really pull out all of their cards for Fortnite Chapter 2. Therefore they stopped sharing patch notes. However, they released the patch notes right after they got a nomination for Community Support from The Game Awards 2019. Here are the patch note.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Extended in Patch Notes
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 will be extended until February 2020. This was explained in a blog post by the devs. They have stated; “With a new year comes new beginnings! Last year we celebrated 14 Days of Fortnite over the holidays. This year we’ve got even more content for you to unwrap, including new game features, free rewards and a live experience that you won’t want to miss. To prepare for all the new holiday-themed updates, we will be extending Chapter 2’s first season into early February. Get ready for winter!” So we have an extension of a season for the first time.
There’s a new Ninja coming to Homebase!

This will change many things and we are not sure why Epic Games chose to make such a drastic measure for the holiday season. They are stating that there will be new game features. Maybe a new game mode would go very well with the game. The creative mode was a huge success for Fortnite and players can create any type of mode in there. But maybe some other modes can be included in the game. There will be events for sure according to this blog post. But postponing a season for that long must have something bigger behind it. Either Epic Games wants to fix the game very well before the new season or there is something else. Because they can do the holiday event in the new season without any problem also.
The changes will affect several other things as well. The amount of content does not stop at Fortnite. The developers are working very hard and every month there is something new. However, map changes even small ones generally depend on the news seasons. Fortnite Esports scene will not get affected that much by this. Also, some pros might even enjoy it more because they will not need to master the new map so soon. So Fortnite Chapter 2 Season is extended until early February.
