Popular online battle royale game Fortnite has become more than just another game to play with your friends. Since it gained popularity in 2017, it has become somewhat of a hangout spot, throwing live events and concerts to bring together players in non-competitive settings.
Live events have become one of Fortnite's biggest attractions. At the end of Chapter 1, the game's original map was sucked into a black hole, while Chapter 2 featured concerts from Travis Scott and Ariana Grande.
Since Chapter 3 was ushered in at the beginning of 2022, there haven't been many major live events yet (though there are some small happenings related to the game's lore that have players raising their eyebrows). When is the next Fortnite live event? Will Season 2 get one before it ends?
Will there be a live event to conclude Season 2?
Season 1 of this new chapter for the game went out with relatively little fuss, ending on a weekend for the first time in many seasons for Fortnite. While some were bummed about the developer's decision not to conclude the inaugural season of a new chapter with a live event, it seems that Season 2 will have one that's bound to make up for it.
If you've been playing this season, then you know that the Resistance and the IO are currently embroiled in a war. While all of the details we have about the season finale are from leakers (meaning nothing has been confirmed just yet), there are plenty of lines of code that seem to imply the season will go out with a bang — literally.
It seems that the fight between the two sides is going to heat up by the end of the season and we'll see an event involving missiles and tanks.
While there's nothing confirming this, the lines of code that have been leaked seem to indicate that a full-scale war may officially begin between the IO soldiers and the Resistance.
Some players have also noticed that the leaked code includes lines about a “moon montage” and “moon pod." While we aren't sure what exactly this could be teasing, it aligns with the theory that the next season will lean heavily into a space theme to coincide with the Star Wars character skins coming to Fortnite.
When is the next live event in 'Fortnite'?
Thankfully, Epic Games is usually pretty good about spelling out what's next for the game — and the introduction of a literal Doomsday Device confirms that the event is on the horizon.
Not only has the Doomsday Device taken up a majority of Loot Lake, but there's even a countdown timer on the Fortnite home screen to indicate that something big is coming our way.
As stated before, the live event will happen at the same time as Season 2's conclusion, so be sure to play Fortnite the weekend of June 4. You can check the countdown for the most accurate reading of when the live event will begin.
