Fortnite season 11 COUNTDOWN - Release date, time, leaks, new map, event, server downtime (Image: EPIC GAMES)
Fortnite season 11 release date looks set to be this weekend, with the expected season 11 start time fast approaching.
Epic Games has not officially confirmed when Fortnite season 11 is launching, but it’s expected to be this Sunday.
The Fortnite makers are rumoured to be doing something quite different with the launch of the new Battle Pass for Battle Royale.
This Sunday will see the Fortnite season 10 live event take place which has ominously been dubbed The End.
Leaks indicate a rocket that has appeared in Dusty Depot will play a big part in the Fortnite event, with sirens blaring in the run-up to it.
The current theory is that the existing Fortnite map will be destroyed, or at least heavily damaged during the upcoming Fortnite event.
And according to dataminers, during the Fortnite live event players will at one point be transported to a safe spot to watch the destruction unfold.
If the Fortnite map is heavily damaged, or even destroyed, then it would be unlikely that Epic Games would let gamers continue playing on it for a few days.
So, while new Fortnite seasons typically launch on a Thursday, it’s expected this time round season 11 will release after the upcoming event.
The Fortnite season 10 live event is taking place on Sunday October 13 at 7pm UK time.
For those in other regions that’s 1pm eastern time and 10am pacific time.
So, it’s believed after the Fortnite season 10 event - which is expected to be between five to 10 minutes - server downtime will immediately commence.

And then, following Fortnite server downtime, a brand new Fortnite map could be launched.
Typically, Fortnite server downtime for the launch of a new Battle Pass season can take up to around three hours.
So, if this is the case, then Fortnite season 11 could end up launching around 10pm UK time on Sunday October 11.
This, of course, remains to be seen - with it still possible
