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.


Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
