Let's take a look at the latest news and why Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 5 WON'T be happening.

Fortnite Season 5 Release Date

We're starting off with one relevant certainty, Fortnite Season 5 has a release date of Sunday, 4 December. This continues the current trend of new seasons finishing up on a Saturday night and starting the following day.

Downtime will take place and if it's anything in-line with other seasons, it could last upwards of 8 hours. A big contributing factor to this is whether or not there will be an end-of-season event.

If there is an event, which I certainly hope there will be, servers will go down a little earlier than usual and this will lead to longer downtime overall.

Fortnite Season 5 Leaks

Leaks are very thin on the ground so far for Season 5 with not even a single Battle Pass skin having been hinted at, but there is one assumption we can make given the time of year that this content arrives.

Winterfest should begin shortly after Fortnite Season 5 begins and we expect it to be just as huge as it was last year. Whether or not the cozy cabin returns remains to be seen but going straight from the start of a new season into a big event like Winterfest is great for fans over the holiday period.
