Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 release date and Season 4 ending

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 release date and Season 4 ending

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is well underway and won’t be ending for a little while yet. It recently went live, adding in new Heist locations where players can pick up Mythic weapons.

With Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 so early in its run, not much is known about Season 5 at present. Thankfully, the battle royale title always lists when the current season is going to end, so we do know roughly when we’ll be playing the next season at least.

Here’s everything you need to know about when Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 ends, when Season 5 starts, and what to expect. As we draw closer to the new season’s launch, we’ll be sure to update this page with exact timings. For now, here’s what Epic has said about Fortnite’s next season so far.

The Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 end date and time is November at 2AM ET. This is listed on the Battle Pass page currently live in the game. It’s worth noting that last season’s timings shifted by a couple of days just before the new one was supposed to arrive, so timings here are subject to change. The best place to keep up on specific updates closer to the launch of the new season is the Fortnite Status Twitter account. We’ll be sure to keep this page up to date as well.

While we don’t have exact timings yet for the next Fortnite Season, it’s arriving around November 3, 2023. The thing to remember about new Fortnite seasons and chapters is that there is always a period of downtime after one ends. This downtime can range from a couple of hours, as was the case last season, to multiple days, which has happened between chapters before. 

Given that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 is expected to be a regular seasonal update, the downtime will likely be somewhere between two and six hours. We’ll be sure to update this page closer to the day, as Epic will likely reveal specifics on just how long Fortnite will be down this time.

What to expect from the next Fortnite season

Epic has yet to unveil Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5. We’ll likely hear more closer to November 2023.

What we do know is that there will be map changes with the next seasonal update. The Heist vaults were added recently, heavily guarded locations hiding great loot. Weapon meta and drops are usually shuffled at the start of a new season, with new Mythics introduced alongside new characters. There will be new Seasonal Quests to take on as well, so keep an eye out for any in-game teases over the next couple of weeks.
