In the blog they said,

Also, make sure to check out a one-time-only live event called The Device, now scheduled for Saturday, June 6 at 2 PM ET (please show up 30 minutes early to help secure your spot, space is limited!).
Before the new season, don’t forget to complete your Battle Pass Challenges and lock in appearance choices for Brutus, TNTina, Meowscles, Skye, Midas, and Maya. There’s still time to complete the recently-added Location Domination and Storm The Agency Challenges.

Device Event Date And Time
Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2 has been delayed. Epic Games has also delayed the Device Event or previously known as The Doomsday Event along with it. Previously the event time was on 30th May but now Epic has also pushed the event time by a week. The new time of the Device Event is 6th June Saturday at 2 PM ET.
Fortnite data miner Hypex confirmed that the event was also delayed along with the season.
Although this delay might not make players happy I do hope the new season comes out only when it is fully finished.
