Fortnite Season 3 has been delayed and will now go live on 17th June

Epic Games has announced that they have pushed back the date for the next season of the popular free to play video game Fortnite. In a statement published on the Epic Games website the company said “we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities.” Therefore the next live event will happen a little later than planned and will now take place on Monday, 15th June and Season 3 will launch Wednesday, June 17th. Here’s the full statement from their website:

“Hey Fortnite community,

Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color. We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.

We believe in equality and justice, diversity and inclusion, and that these fundamentals are above politics.

The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities.

The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

– Epic Games”
