Fortnite Chapter 5 is closer than you think.

It's never too early to discuss the next significant step in Fortnite. Rumors regarding Fortnite Chapter 5 began in May. Despite Epic Games having just launched Chapter 4 Season 3, leakers within the Fortnite scene believe a new experience is on the horizon. If true, this decision would be similar to Chapter 3, which lasted four seasons.

With the next chapter expected soon, here is everything we know, including the expected release date and more.

When is Chapter 5 of Fortnite coming out?

Reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed in May that Epic Games plans to launch the next chapter after Chapter 4 Season 4. To give perspective, Fortnite is currently in the middle of Chapter 4 Season 3. The latest season launched on June 9, 2023, and is expected to end on August 25, 2023.

Based on Fortnite’s last two chapters, the Fortnite Chapter 5 leaks hold some merit. Chapter 3 lasted four seasons before Chapter 4 took over and gave players a new map. Additionally, Chapters 3 and 4 launched in December, and 2023 is rapidly approaching.

HYPEX indicated Epic intends to release Fortnite Chapter 5 in November and December, making it fit the usual schedule.

What can I expect in the new Chapter?

Epic Games has been working on Fortnite Chapter 5 for some time. In fact, according to an email obtained by esports reporter Jacob Wolf and HYPEX, Epic recently reallocated staff to focus in part on the next Chapter.

While Chapter 5 is a mystery, many leakers believe the planned Lego collaboration will occur after its launch. If that happens, this crossover could become the most successful in the game’s history. 

Beyond this leak, what else Epic might have up its sleeve for Fortnite Chapter 5 is unclear. We will be sure to update you with all of the latest information.
