Fortnite OG (AKA Chapter 4 Season 5) will be the game’s shortest season ever, so fans need to make the most of it while they can.

By all accounts, Fortnite OG is everything that fans have been asking for. A return to a simpler time, when the Battle Royale game felt fresh and new.

But if you’re enjoying the Chapter 1 gameplay, you should know that this special season won’t be sticking around for long.

When Will the OG Season End?

Fortnite OG is set to come to an end on December 2, 2023 at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET. The season will conclude in .

This makes Chapter 4 Season 5 the shortest season in Fortnite history, at just 30 days long!

Previously, the shortest season was the original Fortnite Season 1, which lasted only 50 days.

Typically though, seasons tend to last between 70-100 days, with the longest season ever being Chapter 2 Season 1 at 128 days long!

Why Is This Season So Short?

Fortnite OG is considered to be a special season that, in many ways, is more of an event than an independent season.

The official X (formerly Twitter) account even refers to it exclusively as ‘Chapter 4 Season OG‘ rather than Season 5.

We imagine that the season is so short in order to offer fans a way to revisit the past without the gimmick getting old.

After all, some players just aren’t a fan of older Fortnite, and newer players who jumped in at later Chapters (or alongside Zero Build), won’t feel the same nostalgia as long-time fans.

Already, users who are used to modern gameplay are complaining about everything from lack of cover and movement to the slower pace and distribution of healing items present in Fortnite OG.

But if you’re not a fan of Fortnite OG, at least Chapter 5’s start date is only days away!
