Fortnite OG is finally here, but good things can’t last forever – here’s when the season will come to an end, and Chapter 5 is set to begin!
If you’re enjoying Fortnite’s return to Chapter 1, you’re not alone. The highly-anticipated Fortnite OG season is a true blast from the past, and many longtime fans are thrilled to see iconic content return.
However, there’s a reason that the Battle Pass is only 50 tiers this time around. The sad truth of the matter is that Fortnite OG will be the Battle Royale’s shortest-ever season.
When Does the Season End?
Fortnite OG is set to end on December 2, 2023 at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET.
The season will come to an end in .
This means that the season will be the shortest in Fortnite history, at just 30 days long. This fact was confirmed in the Fornite OG Battle Pass blog, by Epic Games itself.
Typically a Fortnite season lasts somewhere between 70-100 days. Prior to Fortnite OG, the shortest season was the original Season 1, which lasted only 50 days.
Reportedly, this season is set to be the most chaotic update in Fortnite history, with a rapidly changing map incorporating content from later seasons at a frequent pace.
Will There Be a Live Event?
Yes, it appears that there will be a live event to close out the Fortnite OG season on December 2, 2023.
This doesn’t come as a surprise to us, as it has been almost a year since the last Fortnite live event, Fracture, which took place on December 3, 2022.
This time around, dataminers indicate that we’re moving to Chapter 5 Season 1, which means a significant event is sure to occur to take us there.
And what’s more, we can already see the time machine strapped to The Visitor’s rocket in-game, teasing an inevitable catastrophe that will likely kick off the live event.
Leakers have also found evidence of a lobby countdown timer in the game files, something that always appears before a live event.
So we’re pretty confident in our assumption that one is coming at long last, when Fortnite OG comes to an end.
