While some people are always going to wonder just why Fortnite is as popular as it is, the answer is usually right in front of everyone’s face. Epic Games has done a great job of rolling out new content and map changes on a semi-regular basis.
It appears some kind of change is coming in the next few days or weeks, as players have seen some new propaganda posters and warning signs pop up all over the title’s map. Just what those signs could mean is anyone’s guess but this is usually exactly how the Fortnite devs handle things.
Epic loves to foreshadow what is coming next with little hints and clues. When those clues first surface, there’s usually a lot of guessing and wild speculation, without anyone really coming close to what is actually meant.
YouTuber Happy Power appears to be one of the first to notice the posters and signs. That particular user had to add a little segment into their regularly scheduled video because they felt it was big enough news.
Despite thinking the situation was worth pointing out, the poster didn’t really have much of a theory about what exactly was being planned.
Some viewers on YouTube and Twitter were quick to point out that the posters looked like what you might have seen in the US during World War II. One working theory is that Epic Games is hinting some kind of “nuclear” event might be on the way.
In recent weeks, there has been talk about a possible delay for Fortnite Season 10. Is it possible the new posters are hinting that Epic is readying that release relatively soon after all?
Things are relatively quiet when it comes to the main map these days. It’s gone through all kinds of changes over the years, including bringing some characters from Avengers: End Game into the mix. Could we be seeing a nuclear wasteland on the horizon?
