Fortnite players have a ton of predictions about what we’ll see when Season 6 goes live, and one popular rumor is that it will include the return of ‘Kevin’ the Cube. Now one player has taken this even further.

Epic Games went all out in terms of content during Fortnite Season 5. We’ve seen plenty of Exotic weapons, cosmetics, as well as crossovers with other franchises, such as HaloThe Walking Dead and many others.

We’re all curious about what we’ll see in Season 6, and many fans have formed their own theories. One prominent rumor is that we’ll see the return of Kevin the Cube in the update, and this has been promoted even by prominent YouTubers like Ali-A.

Will Kevin the Cube be in Fortnite Season 6?

Kevin hasn’t been seen on the battle royale’s map since 2018, and there has been a ton of speculation about its return over the past few years. These theories get even more traction when the next season is just around the corner.

Reddit user duskyxlops was able to map out the seven portal locations on the map, and then theorized that this forms a hint about what Season 6’s theme will be. They pointed out that the locations apparently line up to create a cube.

“So far the portal locations are forming a cube,” stated duskyxlops. “Just like the runes Kevin imprinted on the map in Season 5 Chapter 1– Two are unreleased.”

This could all be alluding to a big incoming catastrophe that will strike Fortnite Island. “Dark energy might corrupt the portals and make corrupted zones next season,” said duskyxlops.

Many of the commenters were immediately pulled in by this, and started forming their own theories of how the cube could make its return to the game. Some even started speculating that there’s another hint hidden in the game files.

“There’s sounds in the files for mechanical door opening sounds. The redacted bunker, Kevin the cube. Those two Spots lineup. Kevin is in the redacted bunker, I’m calling it,” said user ‘TonyThePapyrus.’

With Fortnite Season 5 set to end on March 16, we can expect to see the last portal locations appear on the map soon, and that will boost speculation even more.

Fortnite Ant-Man skin leaked as next Marvel crossover for Season 5

Fortnite data miners have discovered that the next hunter skin to come to Chapter 2, Season 5 is Marvel’s Ant-Man.

Fortnite is set to further bolster its roster of Marvel Superheroes, with data miners uncovering Ant-Man as the next Hunter to join Season 5.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 went all-in on superhero content. Avengers and X-Men joined the battle royale fray and Stark Industries arrived as a POI on the map. This super-hero-themed season ended with Marvel characters and Fortnite players joining forces to defeat Galactus – which brought us into Season 5.

Over the course of Season 5, Jonesy has brought hunters to the island from various universes and pop culture. We’ve seen The Mandalorian, Master Chief, Predator, and The Terminator arrive over the course of the season.

Season 6 is set to launch around March 16, but it appears Epic Games are going to treat players to at least one last hunter before the season ends.

An image and audio files discovered by Fortnite data miner VastBlast strongly hint at Marvel superhero Ant-Man’s arrival.

Popular and reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX confirmed this theory by tweeting on March 5 that “The next hunter is confirmed to be Ant-Man!”

Ant-Man was a notable exclusion from Season 4, especially when he had his own POI, Ant Manor.

However, it appears Jonesy has recruited him to help stabilize the Zero Point. Some crazy stuff with the Zero Point is expected to happen at the end of Season 5, and Ant-Man could very well tie into this. Ant-Man can shrink down so small that he enters the Quantum Realm, which may be a valuable skill Jonesy is looking for.

How to get Ant-Man skin in Fortnite

No information has been revealed on how Ant-Man will enter the Fortnite fray, but by looking at how previous new pop culture characters have been added, we can make an educated prediction.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

It’s highly likely that Ant-Man will come to the Item Shop alongside a series of cosmetic items associated with the character. We’re not sure on a release date, but with the end of Season 5 quickly nearing the horizon, it’ll most likely arrive at some point in the week beginning March 8.

Fortnite often releases male and female versions of their most popular skins, so it’s very likely that we will also be seeing The Wasp come to Fortnite either at the same time as, or not long after, Ant-Man arrives.

When does Fortnite Season 6 start? Chapter 2 Season 5 end date

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 is almost here, so here’s when Season 5 ends, and everything we know about the next major update.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is now nearing its end, but how long does it have left, and when will Season 6 officially launch?

Fortnite divides its content up into Seasons, with Chapters dividing them up further. Once Fortnite reached the end of Season 10 in October 2019, the game moved onto Chapter 2. We’re now nearing the end Chapter 2, Season 5, so players have set their sights on what Season 6 will have in store.

Fortnite Season 4 ended on December 2 following a massive battle between Fortnite players, Marvel heroes, and Galactus. The game was down for a few hours and then Season 5, titled ‘Zero Point,’ kicked off in style.

A plethora of pop-culture characters have come to the game in Season 5, such as Star Wars’ The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, Xenomorphs, and the Predator.

How long does Season 5’s Battle Pass have left, and when does Season 6 start?

When does Fortnite Season 6 begin?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 will end on March 16, 2021 with Season 6 likely to follow directly after it.

Official Fortnite channels have confirmed that the Battle Pass will end on March 16, so it’s safe to assume that Season 6 will begin during the week beginning March 15.

Popular and reliable leaker HYPEX has also revealed that Season 6 won’t be delayed, as the update has been added to the staging servers on March 5.

What will be in Fortnite Season 6?

Fortnite data miners already have an idea of what Season 5’s end event will look like. In the 15.50 update files, Mang0e discovered NPCs will be “teleported to wacky places by the Zero Point,” and Fort Tory discovered that audio will be distorted as we reach the event.

It’s likely Season 6 will feature significant map changes. We last saw Colossal Coliseum, Stealthy Stronghold, and the return of fan-favorite location Tilted Towers.

The theme for next season’s content is anyone’s guess, but data miners have become adept at deciphering Epic Games’ plans so we’re likely to have a strong idea before it officially launches. There is a plethora of leaked content such as vehicle-based bosses, and the ability to sell your loot to NPCs for Gold that could arrive in Season 6.

As soon as we know more about Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6, we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite leak reveals major tournament planned for Season 6

A recent Fortnite leak is pointing towards a major tournament planned for Season 6 – perhaps even an in-person LAN.

Fortnite Champion Series 2020, 2021

A new Fortnite leak is pointing towards a major tournament planned for Season 6.

It appears that through some Fortnite leaks that the possibility for a new LAN event could be on the horizon. With recent restrictions in place throughout the world, LAN events have been mostly absent throughout 2020.

Recently, players have been competing in the Fortnite Champion Series for the past year, with smaller events happening online.

Now, according to popular Fortnite leaker VastBlastt on Twitter, we may see some LAN events coming soon, as the Live Broadcasting server has recently been updated to the v16.00 version on an update posted on March 3, 2021.

The last time the client saw an update was in January 2020, during the Dreamhack Anaheim event, which was the final LAN before the health crisis shut down all in person LAN events for the remainder of 2020, and into 2021.

We are unaware on exactly what this could mean, as Epic Games have already confirmed we won’t be seeing a World Cup in 2021.

If this is in fact for a LAN event, this would be the second LAN event announced by a developer for 2021, as VALORANT developer Riot have already announced that a LAN event will be occurring during 2021.

Fortnite's Champion Series, 2020, 2021

Most likely though, is that this is just an update for the Live Broadcasting server, in preparation for future events that will be hosted in 2022, or maybe Epic Games plans to use the client for other reasons.

Regardless for the reasoning behind this update, we’ll sure find out in the coming months if this is related to a LAN event. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that conditions in the world improve so we can get back to in-person esports as soon as possible.

We’ll keep you updated if we hear any additional information.
