Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 9: Release Date, Events, Skins & More

It's never too early to start looking forward when it comes to Fortnite and the same rings true for Season 9. We may still be weeks away from the change but we're already starting to see information leaked that could hint at some big updates coming.

Whether it's the possible inclusion of Spider-Man at long last, or the proposed third stage of the Cube story that will dominate the remainder of Chapter 2, there's so much to look forward to.

We've compiled everything we know or leakers have uncovered so far about Fortnite Season 9 and will keep you up to date as we inch closer to its arrival.

Fortnite Season 9 Start Date

We know that Fortnite Season 8 ends on Sunday, 5 December so anticipate that the start of Season 9 will be either Monday, 6 December or Tuesday, 7 December. At the conclusion of Season 7, there was just a short turnaround before the new season started.

Will the Cubes have an effect on Season 9 too?

This could be the case for Season 9 also as we may have a big blow-off event on Sunday before servers go offline to implement the new update. There is still so much we don't know about the story of the current season that it's hard to guess how we transition to Season 9 until we have more detail.

The Cube movements are still ongoing and are set to trigger an event close to Halloween. This should tie in nicely with Fortnitemares and bring us a lot more detail about where we're heading next. The mystery battle pass character is also still yet to be revealed and it's believed that The Foundation will also be returning before Season 8 is done.

Is Spider-Man finally coming to Fortnite?

Rumours of Spider-Man's arrival in Fortnite have been running wild for years now. Many popular heroes have come and gone from both DC and Marvel just the web-slinger has always been absent.


A recent leak from @HYPEX appears to finally uncover some solid details that suggest her could be on his way either towards the end of Season 8 or early in Season 9.
