Fortnite season 7 is ending soon, with just over a week left to play the current Battle Pass. Fortnite season 7 is currently listed in-game as ending on Sunday September 12. And it looks like to close out the Battle Pass Epic Games could be holding another Fortnite live event.
Following the release of Fortnite update 17.50 earlier this week it was rumoured an in-game countdown would appear in Fortnite on Friday September 3, showing how much time is left till the event.
And now, according to known leaker HYPEX, the start time for the Fortnite season 7 live event has leaked.
HYPEX tweeted: “The event countdown has just been set to appear in 2 hours, the event happens on the 12th at 8 PM UTC”.
That means the start time for the Fortnite season 7 live event should be pencilled in for 9pm BST on Sunday September 12.

For those in other regions that’s 1pm pacific time, 4pm eastern time and 10pm CEST.
It’s believed the Fortnite season 7 live event will lead into the start of Fortnite season 8.
This key detail was revealed following the release of Fortnite update 17.50 earlier this week after dataminer @FNLeaksAndInfo rummaged through the latest patch’s files.
According to @FNLeaksAndInfo, the Fortnite season 7 event could end with downtime a la the Fortnite season X event.
The Fortnite leaker posted: “There’s gonna be another event to end this season and will most likely include another waiting/loading screen similar to the ending of Season X & Season 4!”
It’s been rumoured for some time now that Fortnite season 7 will have another live event at the tail end of the Battle Pass’s runtime.
This news emerged back in July in a wide ranging leak posted on Reddit.
Besides talking about an event at the end of season 7, the leak said Fortnite chapter 3 will usher in a brand new map while Naruto could be the focus of a season 8 Battle Pass skin.
What’s interesting about this leak though is that it accurately claimed an Ariana Grande event was in the works well before it was officially announced.
Which could add legitimacy to the other claims made in the leak.
According to the Reddit post, the live event for Fortnite seson 7 will see Kevin the Cube return, with this comback masterminded by a character that will play a role in the chapter 3 storyline.
