Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is just about to be released, and players are clamoring to find out what is next for the Battle Royale game. While not much has leaked just yet, we do have at least some idea of what you can expect from this next Battle Pass. If you want to tick down when you can expect it to release from wherever you are in the world, we’ve got a countdown that will help you do so!

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Release Date & Time

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 has a set release date of March 20th, 2022! The release time, however, isn’t exact but we do know that maintenance will be starting at 12pm PT / 3am ET / 7am GMT. Downtime for a new season usually lasts around 2 – 3 hours, but this is only an estimate.

If you’re eagerly awaiting to see what’s next for Fortnite, then we’ll be ticking away the time with the countdowns below. Once it reaches all zeroes, you will be able to check out the livestream!


Once maintenance starts on Fortnite, you will no longer be able to play the game until the new patch is live! That means you need to get all of your quests and Battle Pass done before the timer reaches zero.

The countdown below is an estimate from previous times when new seasons have gone out of maintenance in Fortnite. It is possible that it begins sooner or later than listed, so only use it as a guideline instead of an absolute.

Chapter 3: Season 2 Leaks

A pretty well-known leak is that Doctor Strange will very likely be apart of the Battle Pass in a major way. This will be in promotion of the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness movie that is set to launch on May 6th, 2022. A full reveal has yet to happen, but the back bling for the skin has been found.
