What is the Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 release date?

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 will be released on May 24, 2024. As you've noticed, the main color is orange, which looks like sand. Coincidentally, one movie with lots of sand has a world premiere on the same day—Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. That's completely in line with a Fortnite roadmap leak suggesting that the theme of Season 3 will be a Road Warrior-like apocalypse.
