Fortnite Season 3 and Doomsday Event are Getting Delayed

Season 3 of Fortnite promises even more action and exciting gameplay to be coming to the insanely popular online battle royale title. The 250 million players that the Fortnite developers can be proud of had been waiting for Season 3 to arrive this weekend, but the event was postponed.

Epic Games made the harsh announcement, the company that developed the game. While you might think that the COVID-19 virus is the culprit for the delay, that’s not the case this time. The reason behind the delay is represented by the unpleasant events from the United States which are connected to the George Floyd protests.

Fortnite Season 3 arrives on June 17

The Fortnite Doomsday event is scheduled even earlier, on June 15, 2020.  Epic Games said the following:

“Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of colour.

“We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”
