Players have noticed a collection of subtle hints towards to the destruction of the current map added in the latest update.

Clues in Cosmetics

A number of different cosmetics have descriptions that hint towards ending our reality and with it Chapter 2.

The Reality Render Pickaxe has the description; “This staff has ended countless realities. Soon, the Island will join them.“, suggesting that the Island could be destroyed soon.
The Cubic Vortex Back Bling has the description; “Time is running out for you. Tick, tick, tick.“, suggesting again that our time left on the Chapter 2 Island is running out.
The Page-Turner Emote was introduced to Fortnite earlier this Season and has the description; “Just a second, I’m almost at the end of the chapter.“, hinting that the end of Chapter 2 is almost here.

It’s also worth remembering that when the storyline for Season 8 was originally leaked earlier this year, the insider who shared the information said “The ‘Queen’ character will lead directly into Chapter 3”. Read more about the original leak here.

Dark Jonesy

The Dark Jonesy Character that can be found at Steamy Stacks on the map says he can see into the future then later mentions “total annihilation” when talking about the Island.

Donald Mustard’s Twitter Banner

Donald Mustard’s Twitter banner often gives clues to future seasons of Fortnite. During the server downtime for this season, the banner was changed to what appeared to be a space scene with the Zero Point. When combined with information about a new “Black Hole” leaked by HYPEX, it’s possible that the teaser Donald posted was actually an early look at Chapter 3’s “Black Hole”.

B.R.U.T.E. Mechs

The B.R.U.T.E. robots were never intended to be around for a full Season, which is what lead to the game being sucked into a Black Hole in 2019. With their return already leaked to be happening later this Season, it’s possible that the new Island could suffer the same fate with history repeating itself.
