Popular Fortnite YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has made a bold prediction about where the game is heading in Season 6, and it could mean the return of a long-running mystery. 

Fortnite may be best-known for its addictive battle royale gameplay and high-profile crossovers with franchises like Marvel and Star Wars, but it’s also got its own immersive storylines and lore to keep players hooked.

Naturally, this leads to plenty of speculation from fans about where the game could be heading next, and YouTuber Ali-A has presented his own prediction about what Epic Games could have in store for us in the upcoming Chapter 2 Season 6.

Fortnite Season 6 could see the return of a long-running mystery.

In a new video, superfan Ali-A explains that Fortnite is close to the halfway point of Chapter 2 Season 5, and that Chapter 2 Season 6 will likely arrive at some point in March – an exciting prospect indeed.

Based on previous theories, he believes that the new season will mark the return of Kevin the Cube.

Is Kevin the Cube returning in Fortnite Season 6?

The Cube is a mysterious object that first appeared in Fortnite in 2018, and was quickly nicknamed Kevin by fans. Its reason for arriving on The Island was initially unknown, although it went on to cause mayhem as it destroyed locations and lifted the island at Loot Lake into the sky.

Fans have been waiting for Kevin the Cube to make a comeback for a long time.

There have been plenty of rumors and speculation from fans that The Cube will return, although it’s yet to make an appearance in Chapter 2. But that could be about to change if predictions from Ali-A are correct.

“The big theme we’ve picked up on with the Chapter 2 seasons is that they mimic the Chapter 1 seasons, just with a new twist,” he explains, pointing to how Chapter 1 Season 4 had a superhero theme, and Chapter 2 Season 4 had a Marvel superheroes theme.

“Looking ahead, the next season will obviously be Chapter 2 Season 6. Chapter 1 Season 6 had the theme of Darkness Rises, specifically the point at which Kevin the Cube had gone into the ground and then returned, lifting up the central island on its back.”

Because of previous similarities between seasons in Chapter 1 and Chapter 2, Ali-A believes that Chapter 2, Season 6 will have another Darkness theme, and as a result, will see the return of Kevin the Cube.

“There are constant Fortnite hints to the Cube returning, and also this Darkness theme,” he says. “The next season is going to be huge, and no doubt will keep on giving us information about Agent Jonesy, the Imagined Order, and Kevin the Cube.”

The return of Kevin the Cube will likely be enough to get fans expected about the upcoming Season 6, and hopefully Ali-A is right about the Imagined Order, too, as they’ve been a mysterious presence throughout the current season.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
