It seems that Fortnite Chapter 2's next season has been delayed once again. This time, Epic Games have pushed the release to 20 February, if the latest info from the data mined files is correct.
UPDATE: Epic Games have officially announced a new release date for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. The new season is now expected to launch Thursday, 20 February 2020.
Original Story: Reliable dataminer Hypex has revealed that another delay for Fortnite Chapter 2 could be on the way. According to the latest info, found in the game files, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 end date has been pushed to 20 February 2020. "The Chapter 2, Season 1 ending date on the API has just been updated from February 6 to February 20," Hypex wrote in the tweet.
Of course, you should take this with a grain of salt just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info. That being said, Hypex is a reliable dataminer that discovered a lot of big Fortnite-related details in the past.
If the datamined info is actually legit, then it will come as a surprise to many players who are excited about the next season. It is not clear what the reason behind the decision might be but hopefully, Epic Games will reveal more details in the upcoming days.
As for Chapter 2 Season 2 content, players would certainly love to see some new weapons and gadgets. It seems that everyone got tired of Season 1 content pretty quick which is not surprising since Chapter 2 stripped things back to the early days of Epic Games' battle royale title.
