Fortnite Fans Think They've Figured Out How Season 10 Will End

Some leaks seem to hint at a massive change coming to Epic's battle royale.

The Fortnite Season 10 theme, "Out of Time," definitely has multiple meanings, but some fans believe it's hinting at a huge change for Epic's battle royale. The season so far has been fairly nostalgic with bygone elements from Fortnite's past reappearing in-game, but supposed leaks suggest that this walk down memory lane may end with a farewell to the Fortnite map as players know it.

Multiple intrepid Fortnite leakers with good track records say they have unearthed a new loading screen for Season 10's waning days and a reference to an ominous sounding limited-time mode. The supposed leaked loading screen shows several familiar Fortnite characters waving goodbye to the Battle Bus as it floats off towards the setting sun. That alone would be enough to kick speculation into high gear, but popular leakers ShiinaBR and Lucas7yoshi both say that a new limited-time mode called "The End" is coming to Fortnite soon. Between the artwork and the name, some fans think Fortnite's entire map will be replaced at the end of the season.

One Fortnite fan pouring over Season 10's nuggets of story so far wonders if a new battle royale map was being teased as early as the season's nostalgic debut trailer.

Of course, in Fortnite's battle royale mode, change isn't always permanent. Season 10 has given players a chance to revisit past map locales like Greasy Grove and the Floating Island, and Fortnite has also squeezed in temporary Borderlands and Batman areas on the map in recent weeks. Maybe the speculation is spot-on and Fortnite's getting a new map; maybe it won't be a new map so much as a map-wide makeover. Maybe it's not Fortnite saying goodbye to its map, but rather to the Battle Bus (okay, that seems way less likely).

New map or not, Fortnite's eleventh season is going to bring big changes to the game. Epic will start to roll out skill based matchmaking in core modes with the game's next patch, which Season 11 will supplement with the introduction of bots.
