When does Season 8 start in Fortnite?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is almost over, with just two more Wild Weeks and a finale event to go. That means we only have just over a week to unlock the rest of Season 7’s offerings. When does Season 8 start in Fortnite?

When does Season 8 start in Fortnite?


Season 7 wraps up when the finale event, Operation: Sky Fire starts at 4 p.m. on Sept. 12. Season 8 should start shortly after, most likely before the server update on Tuesday. Operation: Sky Fire is on a Sunday, so that leaves a curious day in between the end of a season and the start of the next.

My guess is that Season 8 starts on Monday, right after the event, since we all know what’s it like for a day without Fortnite.

The Season 7 finale is also the deadline for any Quests, including Superman’s. Luckily, Epic Games have greatly reduced the amount of Quests needed to redeem all of Superman’s rewards. If you still need to get those, you know I got you covered here.

This is also the time when you have to cash in your Battle Stars for any remaining Battle Pass rewards and Alien Artifacts for Kymera parts. You must complete these before the Operation: Sky Fire event starts.

Bars will also reset, but the last Wild Week will offer discounts across the Island to help you spend them all. It’s more like a Wild Couple-of-Days, since that kicks off on Sept. 9.

Quests that aren’t related to the Battle Pass like LeBron’s or from packs like Vox Hunter will go forward into the next season, so you can rest easy if you have those.

As for the content of Season 8, we haven’t gotten any teasers yet. Epic Games have been holding their new content teasers closer and closer, so we likely won’t have any information on the theme of Season 8 until after the event.

At the very least, we know that bars will be back.
