Fortnite‘s new season is now well underway, and Epic has now released a bunch of new content themed round  Avatar: The Last Airbender. There’s new mythics, new quests as well as new skins to enjoy.

Fortnite OG wowed players last year, offering up retooled versions of various classic seasons, which changed each week. It proved to be a massive hit, with player counts absolutely skyrocketing in the month or so Fortnite OG was live. But when is OG Fortnite coming back to the game?

Thankfully, the ongoing battle royale title receives regular updates from its developers teasing what’s coming, and we do now know that Fortnite OG is indeed scheduled to return. Details are scarce right now, but now that we’re a fair ways into 2024, news is imminent.

Here’s everything you need to know about when Fortnite OG is penned to return. we’ll cover everything officially revealed by Epic Games, some info on what to expect, as well as a round-up of how things played out last time. As news comes out, this page will be updated.

What is Fortnite OG?

Fortnite OG launched in November 2023 and switched the game all the way back to the 2018 map. Specifically, it started in Season 5, with the return of Tilted Towers, a throwback weapon loot pool, and several OG skins to buy in the store. Each week, Epic Games moved the clock forward to the next season, rotating through Season 6, Season 7/8, and then Season 9/10. 

The map went back to a more classic style, visually and in terms of level design. Iconic locations like Frosty Flights came back, as did old-school vehicles like the X-4 Stormwing. This lasted until December 2, 2023, when the game switched over to a new season. Fortnite OG has not been live in the game ever since but is scheduled to return this year.

What we want to see in Fortnite OG Season 2

We don’t have any official details on what Fortnite OG will include when it comes back, but we certainly have some wishes for what we’d like to see. Primarily, we’d like to see Epic Games rotate through a different selection of classic seasons, without straying too hard from what the game was like in its 2018/2019 heyday. Generally, it’d be great to see the return of Season 5 again, with Tilted Towers being the main focus.

While we’d definitely like to see Fortnite OG return, we don’t want things to be as short-lived as last time. The absolutely gigantic player numbers during the first drop showed just how hungry fans are for a paired-back and more classic-feeling Fortnite experience, so perhaps it’s time for Fortnite OG to become its own mode. This would give players the choice to kick back to 2018 when they want, while also having the new seasons run parallel. Of course, this would split the player base significantly, so we doubt this is how things will work when Fortnite OG returns.
