With all the speculation of what the giant crack in Fortnite‘s sky could mean, Epic Games is set to give us an answer within a matter of days. The game’s developers went onto their subreddit today and made the official announcement below, letting players know that Season 5 will kick off on July 12th.
We’re actually kind of surprised it’s starting so soon, but we’re working under the assumption that Epic is doing their best to avoid any potential leaks or spoilers like what happened with Season 4 and moving forward with it as soon as they can. We’re hoping to hear more info on it in the days ahead.
Season 4 is coming to an end! We want to give you a heads up on the exact ending time. You may have seen the timer update in-game, which means we are giving you two more days to complete Season 4! Season 5 will begin on July 12th at 4 AM EDT (08:00 GMT).
