Epic Games have hinted at “unbelievable things” coming to Fortnite: Chapter 2 in the future – leaving fans wondering what this could mean.

Fortnite has always had a certain strength in retaining players with brand new content, regular updates, and exciting changes, and it looks like they’re nowhere near done yet.

Responding to complaints of server and lag issues within the game, a member of the Live Operations team decided to explain what Epic will be doing to address it – and offered a little more, too.

The introduction of Chapter 2, Season 2 has seen some players facing more connection issues than before.

The original Reddit post addressed the fact that many people are reporting issues with ping and latency since the start of Season 2, asking what Epic Games can or will do to fix it, or whether they’re even aware of it in the first place.

Epic Games employee JShredz responded to the post explaining how exactly their servers work, saying that “always looking to improve the experience” for players, particularly where it pertains to server code performance.

Towards the end of the comment, which went into a lot of detail about the servers, Shredz added that as wells as new additions like the Choppa, they’ve “got some unbelievable things in store for the future.” This immediately got players talking and asking questions.

Of course, given the fact that the entire post was about server issues, it’s fair to assume that Epic has something big in the works to help improve performance and give players a more fair and enjoyable environment through that. But it seems to hint at something even grander.

What could Epic Games be planning for Fortnite?

Fortnite has had some of the biggest collaborations and activations we’ve ever seen in video games. The ongoing Deadpool challenges are a testament to Epic’s well-orchestrated relationship with Marvel, of which they have done many brand activations, so it’s possible that we see more Marvel – and possibly other big film franchises – arrive in Fortnite in the future.

There are also the leaked Travis Scott skins, which would make the U.S. rapper only the second person to get their own skins in Fortnite – behind Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins. Could Fortnite be collaborating with even more big-name celebrities in the near future?

Thanos’ introduction to Fortnite in May 2018 was an unprecedented step forward for the game.

The phrase “unbelievable things” is one that could quite easily be attributed to some of the things Fortnite has done in the past, but it definitely raises some questions over how big exactly they’re able to go – implying it’s possible that they’ve hardly even scratched the surface so far.

What exactly these things are remains to be seen, but if one thing is clear, it’s that Fortnite players still have a lot to look forward to.

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
