Since its debut in late 2017, Fortnite has seen a handful of changes to its map and loot pool, keeping the game refreshing and well worth playing. This is all thanks to the game’s seasonal format as each delivers its own themes, locations, and of course, Battle Pass. With almost two dozen seasons under the Fortnite’s belt, it has certainly become difficult to track when each began and ended. So, to show time flies by far too fast, here’s a breakdown of the exact dates of all of the battle royale’s seasons.
All seasons’ start and end dates in Fortnite
As shown below, Fortnite seasons typically stick around for about three months — but there are some outliers. Diehard fans certainly won’t forget that Chapter 2 Season 1 remained for a whopping 128 days, allowing players to enjoy the debut of Motorboats, Upgrade Benches, and fishing for much longer than expected. Though, Season 1 has still managed to hold the record for being the shortest of the bunch, lasting just 50 days, in total. For a deeper look, you can discover every chapter’s season and their respective dates below.
