Fortnite's Season 8 will be ending tomorrow, May 8, and Season 9 kicks off immediately after on May 9. To get players excited for what's in store in the coming season, Epic Games has just released the first teaser for Fortnite Season 9.

The Season 9 teaser was revealed through the official Fortnite Twitter page and, following tradition, was simple and short. The post simply said "The Future is Unknown", and was accompanied by an image featuring what seems like a futurustic new skin overlaid by a stylized 'N'. I'm not one to speculate, but theories are going around all over the place as to what the big 'N' represents. There's not a lot to go on, but it's pretty cool to imagine Season 9 being themed around a high-tech future.

Season 8 was definitely one of the most exciting for Fortnite: Battle Royale so far. Over the past three months since Season 8 began, Fortnite had to contend with Apex Legends, EA's Battle Royale game that grabbed the spotlight and came close to dethroning the reigning king. In the face of competition, Fortnite pulled through, and in Season 8 made the game better than it's ever been. With all the additions, improvements, and changes to Fortnite, Season 8 was a dynamic ride that climaxed with the announcement of the Fortnite World Cup and its astounding $100,000,000 prize pool.

Despite the looming threat of Apex Legends, Fortnite was able to prove in Season 8 that it’s still the king of the Battle Royale genre. Season 8 was chock full of gameplay improvements and content releases (not to mention some hilarious game-breaking bugs that the community more or less had fun with), and we’re all hoping that Season 9 keeps up the good work that was put into its predecessor.

What do you think about the Season 9 teaser? What are your theories regarding what it means and what it represents? Are you excited to find out on May 9 when Season 9 is scheduled to take off? Let us know in the comments section below!
