Fortnite is now shutting down their online services for the launch of Chapter 3 Season 2, as announced yesterday by Epic Games. We do not yet have the patch notes, but will do once the servers go back online. This is one of those times where Fortnite has been super secretive about their upcoming content with no information or potential leaks other than one or two pieces that we have mentioned below.
Once the maintenance ends, only then you will have to download and install the Fortnite Update 3.49 to your Android devices, PC or the consoles. All the relevant information you may need to know regarding the Fortnite patch notes for this Season 2 update will be added below, in the next section. The only piece of detail we have right now is that the servers will start to go down around 2:30 AM ET (06:30 AM UTC) and will stay like this for at least 4-6 hours.

However, the developers have been extremely tight-lipped about the new updates with no teasers or social media posts to hype up the next season.
One piece of information that is being said to be confirmed in Fortnite Season 2 (2022) is the epic new Doctor Strange outfit, Back Bling and Pickaxe as part of the new Battle Pass. There has been an image floating around on the Internet since earlier today, but only time will tell if that is true or not. You can see that below:
