Epic Games’ plans for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has been leaked ahead of schedule, with a teaser appearing on the PlayStation Store. 

Just like the previous major update, Season 3 was postponed by the developers who officially confirmed that the release date wouldn’t be at the start of June, but instead on June 11.

Members of the game’s community have been waiting for quite some time for information on the next patch, with leakers and data miners suggesting that a complete map flood might be in the works, and finally it appears that we have gotten an answer.

The fate of the island looks to have been thrown in the air by a leaked image, which surfaced on the PlayStation Store on June 1.

The image, which hasn’t yet been sent out or confirmed by Epic Games, shows the Battle Bus hovering mightily close to the water – with the island in the background, completely covered by water.

Previous leaks suggested that this was going to be the case, although players are still waiting for official confirmation. As seen in the screenshot below, the icon has been spotted on the PS Store.

Based on this leaked teaser, it looks like a map flood is on the cards.

The icon itself is also being shared on social media by several Fortnite leakers, such as Fort Tory and FNBRLeaks.

Fortnite & Spongebob crossover?

With the island in the background looking like something from Spongebob Squarepants, it would be easy to think a Bikini Bottom crossover might be in the works. However, FNBR has seemingly shut down those theories by showing the island from the icon has featured in trailers before.

We still await official confirmation on the leaked icon, never mind the rumored crossover, but as soon as new information is made available to us we’ll be the first to let you know!

If there is a severe map change like this coming soon, all eyes turn to the Doomsday event planned to end Season 2, because things are going to have to get a little messy in the near future if this is going to happen.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
