A New Fortnite Battle Royale Map May Have Been Leaked on the App Store

A New Fortnite Battle Royale Map May Have Been Leaked on the App Store

Fortnite's map has changed a lot over its 10 seasons. Is it about to be replaced?

Over the last few weeks, datamined information and ominous in-game events have had Fortnite players wondering if the end of the game's tenth season is going to bring an end to the battle royale's original map. Now, a supposed leak from Apple's App Store listings in Italy shows a new Fortnite environment and suggests that Fortnite's next season will kick off "Chapter 2" of the battle royale experience.

Spotted by Reddit user Giacozzo on the App Store, the auto-playing sizzle reel for Fortnite in the Italian App Store appears to have been mistakenly updated ahead of the end of Fortnite's tenth season. The image at the video's start says "Fortnite Capitolo [Chapter] 2," and the environment pictured features rivers and landmarks that don't line up with any area on Fornite's current map. It looks like there are also boats on the water, which would be a new vehicle addition to Fortnite.

A few weeks ago, intrepid Fortnite dataminers and leakers uncovered references to an event called "The End" and a still-unused loading screen that shows Fortnite characters waving goodbye to the Battle Bus. Countdown timers set to reach zero at Season 10's end showed up in the battle royale mode a few days ago.

Epic Games has introduced plenty of changes to Fortnite's map, temporary and otherwise, but has yet to introduce an entirely new map. As Apex Legends and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have shown, getting players on board with a new battle royale map can be a tall order, whether the original remains in rotation or not.

Those in-game timers are set to run out on October 13, so it won't be long until we find out what Fortnite is changing after the end of Season 10. Epic has already announced that the next season will supplement Fortnite's new skill-based matchmaking with the introduction of bots.
