Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 start time and everything else we know about the new Fortnite Season

Fortnite Season 8 is on the horizon, so make sure you spend those last alien artefacts and Battle Stars on the Season 7 Battle Pass.

Throughout Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 we've witnessed the alien invasion on the island which will come to a close with the end of season event, Operation: Sky Fire.

While much of Season 8 currently remains a mystery, we can expect to see some map changes in the aftermath of this event, along with new skins and challenges.

Below you can find the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 release date, estimated start time and everything else we know about the next Fortnite season.

When is the new Season of Fortnite coming out? Fortnite Season 8 release date and start time, including Operation: Sky Fire start time

Update (13th September): The new season is now live! Here's a closer look at what's been added:

Original guide: While not confirmed by Epic Games at the time of writing, the blog post about Operation: Sky Fire on the official Fortnite site does suggest that the release date for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 will be Monday, 13th September.

Looking back on past seasons, we can safely assume the start time for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 will be the following:

  • UK - 9am (BST)
  • Europe - 10am (CEST)
  • East Coast US - 4am (EDT)
  • West Coast US - 1am (PDT)

Keep in mind these are only estimates and there will be a period of downtime, including a new patch for you to download.


Before Fortnite Season 8 arrives, however, we have Operation: Sky Fire, the end of Season 7 event, to look forward to.

Operation: Sky Fire is occurring on Sunday, 12th September at the following times:

  • UK - 9pm (BST)
  • Europe - (CEST)
  • East Coast US - 4pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US - (PDT)

The playlist for this event will be available 30 minutes before it starts, so, to ensure you get a spot, make sure you take this into account. It's also important to note that the event won't be replayable.

You should also spend your last Battle Stars for the Season 7 Battle Pass and alien artefacts before Operation: Sky Fire happens. If you don't then these items will be automatically used on the earlier available rewards, which could lead you to missing out on something you had your eye on.

Finally, the Superman skin will also no longer be available past the release of Operation: Sky Fire.

What do we know about Fortnite Season 8?

Unlike past seasons, we don't currently know much about Season 8; there have been no hints on the official Fortnite Twitter nor has there been an ARG like last season. Instead, all eyes are focused on the end of Season 7 event - Operation: Sky Fire.


This event will bring the alien invasion storyline to a close and, with parts of Corny Complex rising into the sky due to the effects of the alien mothership, we've already seen some map changes in preparation for Operation: Sky Fire.


It's possible that Operation: Sky Fire will have a lasting effect on the Fortnite map into Season 8 too, since Egyption Fortnite Leaker on Twitter has uncovered coding which suggests Misty Meadows and Dirty Docks will be destroyed during the event.

Our suspicions over whether these areas will survive Operation: Sky Fire have also grown thanks to how they're two of the locations where you can place warning signs during one of this week's legendary quests.


We have, oddly, had some hints about what may happen in Fortnite when Halloween rolls around. Fortnite leaker HYPEX from Twitter posted about loot being added for new 'The Sideways' monsters back in August.

There have been a couple of leaks for upcoming skins being released through the in-game Fortnite store, but not the Season 8 Battle Pass.

This includes a Naruto skin which was clarified by Fortnite steamer CandywingX on Twitter after a conversation with Donald Mustard, chief creative officer for Epic Games and Fortnite, on his stream.

Reliable Fortnite leaks source ShinnaBR from Twitter has also posted about the upcoming D'Ark skin starter pack which we may see released in the store during Season 8.

Finally, with the arrival of both Operation: Sky Fire and Season 8, it's possible we'll see an update to the overarching Zero Point storyline.

To recap - the Zero Point is currently in the possession of the alien forces threatening the island, known as The Last Reality. This occurred after Raz attempted to wield the Zero Point and, in the fallout of this invasion, The Foundation - a number of mysterious Seven who had sealed himself inside the Zero Point to prevent its destruction - was sent flying out into the sea.

We don't currently know the location of The Foundation and the Zero Point's abduction created a crater in the middle of the island, known as The Aftermath.


Throughout Season 7 we have witnessed the clash between the invading aliens and the Imagined Order, also known as IO, which appears to be the organisation in control of the island or, at least, are invested in its survival.

Told through the weekly legendary quests, we assisted Doctor Slone in her attempts to combat the alien invasion. This included uncovering the mole in the IO's operations and turning the alien, Joey, into a triple agent. Events have culminated in the activation of the IO's countermeasure device and the upcoming Operation: Sky Fire.


Still, despite all of these alien shenanigans, there are a lot of other Fortnite lore questions left to answer. Where is The Foundation? What do the Seven want? Is Agent Jones lost in a loop? Who are these sisters The Foundation is looking for? Is Genō a person or a place? What are the true motives of the IO? Will we ever see Kevin again?


We don't know if Season 8 will answer any of these, but it's nice to hope!

What time will Fortnite Season 7 End? Live event start timings, Season 8 downtime, and more

The clock is ticking, and Fortnite Season 7 is hours away from going off the servers. The season will end with a major live event named "Operation Sky Fire," and gamers are already preparing for it.

The end-of-season live event has been the talk of the community for the past few weeks, ever since the news started going around the internet. Gamers are curious to discover how Dr. Slone and her army will defeat the alien forces and rescue the island.

Fortnite: Chapter 2 Season 8 downtime begins after the live event

Fortnite Season 7 has been quite successful with Epic adding the Alien forces to the island. The season is supposed to end on September 12 and will mark the beginning of the live event.

The Operation Sky Fire event in Fortnite Season 7 will see the IO bring down the massive Mothership that hovers over the island. The crash is expected to cause several changes to the map featured in the upcoming season.

Since the live event will only take place once, the timings will be different for different zones.

The regional timings for the upcoming live event are given below:

  1. North America East - 4.00 pm ET
  2. North America West - 1.00 pm PT
  3. Brazil - 5.00 pm Rio time
  4. Europe - 9.00 pm BST/ 10.00 pm CEST
  5. Oceania - 6.00 am AEST/ 8.00 am NZST
  6. Asia - 1.30 am IST/ 4.00 am Singapore Time
  7. Middle East - Midnight UAE time

The live event is not replayable, and therefore, gamers are advised to log in 30 minutes before the event kicks off to be safe.

It is anticipated that the end of the live event will take gamers directly to the downtime for the next update. This will be similar to the Galactus event, and gamers can expect an extended downtime for the Fortnite v18.00 update.

The upcoming update will roll out a new season in Fortnite with exciting new items added to the game. Naturally, gamers would love to drop onto the island as fast as possible and explore the newly added entities. However, the services are expected to be offline for a considerable time.


Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8: Latest News, Release Date, Map, Trailer, Battle Pass, Theme, Skins and More

While Fortnite may have just moved into Chapter 2 Season 7, there is no reason why we can't look towards Season 8 already.

Epic Games have refused to rest on their laurels with the successful battle royale series, which has taken the gaming community by storm since its release back in 2017 and amassed more than 125 million players in less than a year.

In their most recent update, we witness an intergalactic takeover from a mysterious outer space army led by Doctor Slone, where players were tasked with suppressing the alien attack.
