Fortnite Season 3 Leak Appears To Confirm Underwater Theme Rumors

A leaker noticed that the PlayStation Store changed Fortnite's icon, providing further evidence that Chapter 2 Season 3 will focus on underwater gameplay.

Comments

Over the past few weeks, a number of posts from prominent Fortnite leakers have suggested that the upcoming Chapter 2 Season 3 will have players dive underwater to battle it out. Now, the most compelling evidence yet has emerged, further suggesting what's to come following the upcoming Doomsday event. Get your swimsuit and flippers ready, because it looks like the game will be heading underwater--at least a little.

A Twitter user recently noticed that the PlayStation Store had mistakenly changed Fortnite's icon on the storefront ahead of time, and it depicts the familiar battle bus slipping beneath the sea. It wouldn't be the first underwater foray for the game, as players were plunged beneath the surface as part of the recent Travis Scott event.

The start date for Fortnite's Season 3 has just been changed again and will begin on June 17. This follows multiple previous delays, with this latest one attributed to the ongoing protests in response to the murder of George Floyd.

Based on hints and leaks, it appears that a large event called Doomsday will mark the end of Fortnite's Season 2. That is, after the latest delay, now set for Monday, June 15. Some fans have speculated that this event could rip a watery hole in the map, which would reshape the map similar to other events in the game's past. If you're looking for the Spy Bases to open the locked chests, or eliminating henchmen for the Storm the Agency challenges, we've got those covered. Or maybe you'd prefer to join in on the fun and create your own makeshift drone.
