A Fortnite leaker has revealed an upcoming map change that sounds like it will happen before the end of Season 2. Incidentally, the leak comes prominently from Fortnite leaker HypeX, which took to Twitter to reveal some of the changes affecting Nintendo Switch, mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X game due to the ongoing conflict between IO and the Seven. According to the leaker, the seven will recapture several of IO’s strengths, including taking their weapons, vehicles, and outposts and converting them into their own.
“If the seven (blue) retake some parts of the map (red), they will take the tanks, turrets, outposts, etc.,” HypeX said.

For now, that’s the extent of what HypeX has revealed, but there will obviously be more map changes as the conflict rages on, and of course to prepare the game for the inevitable Season 3.
That said, for now, take everything here with a grain of salt. Everything here is unofficial and subject to change. HypeX has proven reliable in the past, but that doesn’t negate the fact that this is still a leak and no information from Epic Games themselves.
Fortnite Free is available across Nintendo Switch, mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. For more information on Epic Games’ free-to-play battle royale game – including both all the latest official news and all the latest unofficial news.
