A new season of Fortnite is just a few days away. Epic Games has started to tease information about Season 9 so you should be ready to start later this week. Fortnite Season 9 will begin on Thursday, May 9th. Fortnite players will likely experience downtime at or around 5 AM ET.
Season 9 in Fortnite is going to last from Thursday, May 9th until Thursday, August 1st. A listing on the PlayStation Store suggests that Season 9 for Fortnite will be a little bit longer than other seasons. This is likely due to the Fortnite World Cup Finals which has been confirmed by Epic Games to be taking place during Season 9.
Fortnite Season 9 starts on May 9th at 5AM ET
Much of what to expect from Season 9 other than the starting and ending dates are pretty much unknowns at this point. Epic Games has only started teasing Season 9 content via Twitter. These teases have mainly consisted of new skins and some text, like “The Future is Bright” and “The Future is Unknown.”
There has been plenty of speculation about what the next season of Fortnite will hold for players. It’s unclear whether there will be major map changes or changes to the game’s current theme, but if the last few seasons are any indication, Season 9 could have both.
Changes to Fortnite with Season 9 will be revealed when the new season begins on May 9th, 2019 at 5AM ET.
