Wild West Theories and Time Travel Speculation for Fortnite: Season 5

Share.
Where in the world is Fortnite going?

Season 5 of Fortnite is less than two weeks away and theories on what will change are at an all time high, including speculation on a potential time travel theme.

Most theories stem from the exciting results of the rocket launch this past weekend. After what appeared to be a failed attempt to destroy Tilted Towers, the rocket zoomed back up where it left a giant tear in the sky. Since the event, strange anomalies have been spotted at Lonely Lodge and the motel, swallowing up nearby objects like the motel sign. Another rift has appeared near the giant tomato head at Tomato Town.

As time goes on, the rifts are continuing to grow, leading fans to speculate that this will cause major map changes in Season 5. The giant crack in the sky has already formed a second crack.

Time Travel is the most popular theory going around as many fans believe these pockets will mess with the space time continuum. Fans have already suggested location changes like making the new soccer stadium a Roman coliseum and new skin concepts like an outfit based on the Egyptian god Anubis.

A look inside the new Detective agency added to Retail Row in the v4.5 patch shows a portrait of what appears to be Anarchy Acres in a western setting. The Wild West theme is further strengthened as the Playground LTM trailer shows a western themed set built in Anarchy Acres.

The trailer also features custom made pyramids and castles.
