While we continue to stare at the black hole, it appears we may finally have an answer as to when the Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 release date and time is.
The hints have come from popular singer Jordan Fisher, in addition to a host of other stars. Fisher has posted a series of cryptic tweets as of recently, with the latest potentially hinting at when we can expect to get hands on with Chapter 2. For those who don’t know, the American-Singer often streams Fortnite on Twitch and is a huge fan.
If this gets 3k rt’s…I’ll drop a lil @FortniteGame hint.— Jordan Fisher (@Jordan_Fisher) October 14, 2019
Fisher originally requested 3000 retweets in order for him to drop a clue. Now the tweet has surpassed 3000 retweets, the Twitch streamer seems to have finally revealed the Fortnite Chapter 2 release date and time.
I’ll be live at 12am PST TONIGHT. 👀— Jordan Fisher (@Jordan_Fisher) October 14, 2019
Although it may seem a little confusing, Jordan Fisher’s tweet suggests Chapter 2 will be live tomorrow at 12am PST.
It’s unclear as to whether the singer is merely trolling fans, even though he has reiterated multiple times that he’s telling the truth. The reason as to why this clue seems somewhat legitimate is because Fisher has never been live at 12am PST before, suggesting it’s quite the occasion.
In addition to this, the Fortnite Chapter 2 release time hinted above tends to roughly follow the trend of prior seasons. While he does seem to have some sort of inside information, Fisher’s hint is probably one of the most credible we’ve seen so far.
Fortnite 2 Release Date/Time
Based on the numerous hints we’ve seen so far (which have been featured below), we’ve come to the conclusion that Chapter 2 is going to begin on Tuesday, October 15 at 12am PST / 8am UK / 3am ET. Despite this, we should remain somewhat skeptical. It’s best we take it with a pinch of salt until Epic Games provide official word on the matter.
To the contrary, fans quickly pointed out that Fortnite China suggests Chapter 2 will take place at 9pm UK. However, considering we’ve already passed that time, that seems incorrect.
Players should also note that the website code for the official Fortnite website has been updated to suggest the next update will arrive this Thursday. However, it’s possible they’ve included Thursday within the code just to make sure they have enough time to delay it until then if anything goes wrong. Therefore, the chance are it will arrive prior to Thursday.
