Fortnite season 8 release date looks like it’s been virtually confirmed by Epic Games.
Fortnite season 8 is fast approaching, with the start of the brand new Battle Pass just around the corner.
The in-game countdown in Fortnite season 7 says the current Battle Pass will finish on February 28.
Historically, brand new Fortnite seasons have begun on the same day that the previous season finished.
So it was thought that Fortnite season 8 could have a release date of February 28.
And it looks like Epic Games may have dropped a big hint that this will be the case.
In a blog post for the Fortnite Share The Love event, Epic Games outlined the start and end date for the Valentine’s Day bonanza.
And they said Fortnite Share The Love will end on February 27 – which is “right before the arrival of Season 8”.
This could be hinting that Fortnite season 8 will have a release date as rumoured on February 28.
Fortnite season 8 will arrive after a 12 week Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass.
This is a longer wait than usual in-between Battle Passes due to Epic staff having a two week break over Christmas.
The theme of Fortnite season 8 remains a mystery, but theories are abound about what the story could be.
Could the starting gun for Fortnite season 8 be a battle between the ice king and the prisoner?
Or, as rumoured, could Fortnite season 8 begin with a huge earthquake that will cause major map changes?
Earthquakes have already started to hit the Fortnite map, after first leaking as part of the update 7.30 game files.
It’s been speculated that the earthquakes will occur every hour or so, building up to the end of the season.
It’s also suggested that part of the island will break off during the transition between Fortnite season 7 and season 8.
Leaked earthquake sound files show that tremors will come in small, medium and large varieties.
Another Fortnite leak suggests that there will be 50 tremors in total.
