Previously, the new season was to launch on 1st May, but due to undisclosed reasons the company has decided to delay it only by a month. The reasons behind the extension might be due to COVID-19 and performance related issues. In March, Fortnite Competitive tweeted about working on resolving performance issues for players and servers.

In the same month, the company cancelled prized tournaments to resolve performance issues which were highlighted during its successful World Cup, in summer 2019.

Maybe the delay has more to do with coronavirus imposed isolation, as development and testing operations are managed by workforce at home, work of season 3 might not be complete.
