With Fortnite Chapter 2- Season 2 slated to go live tomorrow, February 20, we’ve got our final batch of teaser images and clues. What does it all mean?

The countdown has officially begun. While we’ve known for a while that the next chapter of Fortnite would go live on February 20, Epic Games has officially announced that the scheduled downtime will begin at 4:00 a.m. ET (0900 UTC). When the maintenance is complete, we’ll officially be in Chapter 2 of Season 2.

As per tradition, Epic has spent the last week sharing various teasers leading up to Chapter 2 – Season 2. Multiple images have been shared on the game’s social media channels, suggesting new locations and some sort of secret agent/spy theme.

The latest images from today showed what looks like a missile and some sort of explosion wrapped in rope/yarn. The final image was accompanied with a partial message that simply read: “Declassifeowied.” Is this a cats reference Like the images that came before today, they also featured what looks like a portion of the map, perhaps indicating a Point of Interest.

As for what it all means, well, you’re guess is as good as ours. There’s speculation that some of the teaser images have been in reference to Season 4, specifically the Carbide symbol from the Hero mansion as well as the rocket int he villain’s lair. Some believe there could be a connection between Chapter 2 Season 2 and Chapter 1 Season 4.

While the exact details of Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2 remain a mystery, one thing we can be sure of is a new Battle Pass filled with fun cosmetics and, most likely, a slight rework of the map. Expect some new locations, themes and mysteries. It’s also possible that the move to Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics system could result in new gameplay mechanics or, at the very least, some more extravagant destructible environments.

In any case, be sure to check back tomorrow for all of the details on Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2. In the meantime, let us know if you’ve discovered any potential spoilers for what may come.
