Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is just minutes away from starting, bringing the third ever map to the game along with plenty of exciting changes including a new sliding mechanic, the return of iconic POIs from Chapter 1, and of course a brand new Battle Pass.
Although we haven’t even got our hands on the new season at the time of writing this, of course, people are already curious as to when the season will end, and the good news is we have the answer.
And, we hope you will like Chapter 3 Season 1 a lot because you’re going to be playing it for a while.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 end date revealed
Prominent leaker HYPEX has revealed that the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 end date will be on March 19th, 2022, lasting a total of 104 days.
This will make Chapter 3 Season 1 the third-longest season in Fortnite history, only being behind Chapter 2 Season 1 and 2 which lasted for 128 and 118 days respectively, the season will be one day longer than Chapter 2 Season 5 which lasted for 103 days assuming there are no delays.
While it may seem incredibly long for a season, with the average being around 80 days, it is likely that it is being extended due to the start of the season having a holiday-themed event for Christmas, which will see the return of Crackshot’s Cabin and likely a lot of new cosmetics for players to unlock over the holidays.
During this time Epic Games employees also take time off which will see new content slow down for the last couple of weeks of the year.

Chapter 2 Season 1 became very tedious by the end of it, with only the Star Wars event and inclusion of the Harpoon Gun being new content for four months.
But, the game was very stripped back during that season, however Chapter 3 Season 1 looks to be as chaotic as ever so even if it is a bit of a long season hopefully the exciting gameplay changes will keep players engaged until the end of the season.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 will launch on December 5th at 10 am EST/3 pm GMT.
