Before you roll your eyes in disgust, let us take you through what's been said so far and put forward the case as to why Fortnite Chapter 4 could be next.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Coming in 2022?
Before the dust had even settled on the start of Fortnite Season 4, the rumour mill started spinning with whispers that Chapter 4 would arrive next instead of Season 5.
I had to do a double-take when I saw the first links that Chapter 3 would only last four full seasons. There was this belief that a Fortnite season must last somewhere between 8-10 seasons and this news just shatters that completely.
Now, popular leakers and personalities within Fortnite are starting to suggest that Chapter 4 is far closer than we thought.
New Map = New Chapter?
Most of the noise regarding Fortnite Chapter 4 appears to centre on the idea that a possible new map is coming. Again, leakers found this information, which quickly disappeared behind an impenetrable curtain, but the cat was essentially out of the bag.
If a new map is in development and potentially ready to roll out, surely that would take place inside a whole new chapter, right?
I personally believe Chapter 3, Season 5 could add a brand new map with no issues although it could be more to do with setting the principle that this is a major event.
Only time will tell what the future holds and I wouldn't want to dampen anyone's mood regarding the possibilities if Chapter 4 is what's next. Let's just say that, once again, it's an incredibly exciting time to be a Fortnite fan!
