Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Battle Pass - Release Date, Leaks, And Predictions

We've got all the latest on Fortnite Season 6!

March 1, 2021

With Season 5 of Fortnite Chapter 2 coming to an end, many fans are eager to know when Season 6 will begin, and when they can get their hands on a brand new Battle Pass. There’s plenty to talk about when it comes to Season 6, so we’ve put together any leaks and our predictions for the latest season. Don’t forget to keep your eyes on DualShockers as we keep you up to date on the latest Fortnite content.

Release Date

The current Season of Fortnite, known as Chapter 2: Season 5, is set to end by March 15, 2021, according to the official Epic Games website. It’s important to note that this isn’t necessarily the exact date, it could be that the Battle Pass comes to an end sometime around that date. So what does this mean for the start date of Chapter 2: Season 6? There’s no official date yet for the start of Season 6, but it’s likely to take place as soon as Season 5 comes to an end. The week of March 15 is likely when fans will see the introduction of the latest season.

Leaks and Rumours

One of the latest leaks comes from a Fortnite insider known as Hypex, who claims to have information about a new feature possibly coming to Season 6.

If the leak is to be believed, it looks as though players will soon be able to sell loot to NPCs around the Battle Royale map. If an NPC is ready to trade loot with a player, they’ll have the special icon seen in the tweet above their head.


Well, it’s likely that the new season will start with a large scale event, as it now seems to be a typical Fortnite tradition. One thing we can practically confirm is that Fortnite Season 6 will feature a decked out Battle Pass that will come with various skins, back blings, gliders, and more!

Each season of Fortnite also rocks a dedicated theme throughout, so what can we expect from Season 6? Well, many fans are predicting that the newest season will pay homage to Season 6 of Chapter 1 and be a ‘Darkness’ theme. Could this mean Kevin the Cube makes his return? We hope so!

Everything is speculation right now but stay tuned in to DualShockers as we’ll bring you the latest Fortnite news.
