Fortnite Season 3 is seeing another delay.

Epic Games first delayed the release to June 11 and now they’ve backed it off to June 17. While no reason was given for the first delay, the second is out of respect for the protests taking place across the country.

The announcement read, in part, “We believe in equality and justice, diversity and inclusion, and that these fundamentals are above politics. The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families and their communities.”
