During yesterday Fortnite: Battle Royale released its new patch 18.40 with Naruto skins in Spain and around the world, as is customary for Tuesdays almost every week. However, between the dataminers community from the Epic Games video game the alarms went off quickly, and it seems that files have been found in the game that indicate something very big that is close to happening … If the leaks are true, the current Season 8: Cubic would be the last of Chapter 2 of Fortnite and this next month of December will be released the new Chapter 3.
What have the Fortnite dataminers found to have these suspicions that we tell you in the introduction of the news? Well, to begin with, the leaker InTheShadeYT published on his Twitter account the title that will have the final event of Season 8 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite, which will receive the name of “The End”. This is very striking, because in its day the culmination event of Season X of Chapter 1 was already titled that.
Recall that this gigantic event marked the end of Chapter 1 of Fortnite, with the game and its universe being swallowed by a black hole which meant that no one could play the title for several hours, until he finally returned to the ring with his Chapter 2.
Now that “The End” playlist got leaked I can finally talk about this: Chapter 3 is planned to launch on December 7th (It’s SOO good btw) and the Blackhole stays during 5th-6th.
These sources were NEVER wrong about many things, if they’re wrong this time I’ll take the blame lol. HYPEX (@HYPEX) November 16, 2021
To support this leak, HYPEX, another well-known Fortnite dataminer, also shared more relevant data. And it is that according to this filter Season 1 of Chapter 3 of Fortnite will be released next Tuesday, December 7 of 2021. Ah the thing is not, because HYPEX ensures that the game being swallowed up by a black hole again and this will take place on days 5 and 6 December, so it is understood that during this couple of days no one will be able to access Fortnite.
HYPEX also shared what appears to be a new loading screen in teaser form of the possible Chapter 3 of Fortnite. This image suggests a new location that has not been seen until now (although somewhat reminiscent of the emblematic Pisos Picados), new types of vehicles and including the possible sliding mechanics on the ground (as does the central character in the image).
In the last hours the leaker YLSDev also shared what seems to be the “The End” event loading screen of Season 8 of Chapter 2.
At the moment there is nothing official to confirm that all this that we have just said will happen, but without a doubt it is more than interesting data and it must be recognized that more than once in the past these dataminers they have hit in their predictions. If true, it would be surprising. Among the gaming community the hype has already started to grow. There will be stay very attentive to the next news.
