As Fortnite Chapter 2's first season continues to wind down, players may have just seen their first clue that hints at the future of the battle royale game.
Epic Games usually rolls out some sort of live event to close out the seasons, and there's no reason to expect anything different this time around.
In the lead up to these events, the developers will drop hints so players have something to discuss and theorize about regarding upcoming content. This time around, things have been comparatively quiet as we inch closer to February 20, when this current season is scheduled to end.
However, players might have just stumbled across the first clue, and it may even reference a famous biblical event.
A location near Holly Hills appears to spell out "NOAH," which could end up being a hint that Epic Games will flood the map with water, essentially giving us something entirely new to experience in the very near future.
This discovery was made by Reddit user 'jtlambert,' which may have a lot of weight behind it. In the image, you can see the trees make the letter "N," while the rest of the characters are made up of bushes, fences, and a house, respectively.
It would definitely be an unprecedented move to totally destroy the new map, so there's a chance this could end up being just a random coincidence if they aren't willing to let go of all the new locations, just yet. New seasons do usually come with map changes of some sort, but this latest one marked the first time all of the locations changed.
To this point, Fortnite hasn't referenced anything about religion, which isn't surprising, considering the subject has been a controversial topic for many people since the dawn of time.
For a game that is marketed to players of all ages, it might be a bit of a stretch to assume the event will be about anything biblical, but we'll just have to wait and see.
If this doesn't end up being a clue of some sort for the next season, then just what direction will the new era take?
