Fortnite‘s Week 10 challenges have gone live across all platforms, which means we’re coming to the end of the game’s seventh season. Developer Epic Games still hasn’t announced when Season 8 of Battle Royale will begin, but we do know when the current season will formally wrap up.
According to Epic’s website, Season 7 of Fortnite is scheduled to end on Thursday, February 28. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Season 8 will kick off immediately afterward; there have been instances in the past where a new season would begin a few days after the previous one ended. However, it does give us some idea of when we can expect Season 8 to start.
As for what awaits in the new season, that remains remains anyone’s guess. Epic hasn’t shared any details yet about Season 8, although some strange things have begun happening in the game. Recently, players have experienced sudden earthquakes in the middle of a match, and based on audio files gleaned from a datamine, it appears the tremors will only continue to grow in strength.
It’s unclear what these earthquakes portend for Season 8, but Epic typically ushers in new seasons of Fortnite with some sort of world-changing event. Prior to the start of Season 7, an iceberg could be seen drifting toward the island, and Season 6 began after the infamous purple cube known as Kevin plunged into Loot Lake and transformed it.
In the meantime, players still have a little more time to complete this season’s challenges. If you need help, you can find times and guides in our complete Season 7 challenges roundup. Epic has also announced a big Share the Love event for the game, which will encompass new Overtime challenges, additional rewards to unlock, and two double XP weekends.
