The new start date is June 17
Epic Games declared on Wednesday that Fortnite Chapter 2 season 3 has been deferred indeed. The season is booked to begin on June 17, for the time being.
This is season 3’s third postponement. It was first deferred back in April, at that point it was postponed for one more week on May 28. Fortnite likewise had an occasion that was recently booked for Saturday, May 6, that has now been pushed back to Monday, June 15. Past postponements had been to ensure that the season was prepared for dispatch.
As per an announcement discharged by Epic alongside the declaration, this time the deferral is because of “recent events,” which Epic says, “are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color.”
Epic doesn’t determine what these “recent events” are and what “obvious and inconspicuous” demonstrations of prejudice it is alluding to, yet it is likely a reference to the homicide of George Floyd because of cops in Minnesota on May 25. From that point forward, a large number of Americans have fought police brutality and bigotry in urban communities all over the nation. Notwithstanding, while Epic mentions prejudice in its announcement, it doesn’t specify any of different things straightforwardly.
