The popular battle royale Fortnite has different seasons to introduce new battle passes, and new “themes” that progress throughout the 10 week long season. The seasons break game play into sections, allowing players to start fresh at level 1 (in terms of battle pass rank) and allows the developers to change the direction of the game.

The release date was announced when the first teaser was released – you can see the official tweet announcing May 9 as the start date for season 9 below. The theme for Fortnite season 9 appears to be something futuristic. With the first teaser saying “the future is unknown” it’s very clear that Fortnite is hinting towards the future. The one thing that is uncertain is how far in the Future will Epic Games take Fortnite? Will there be space suits, moon rocks, or other in-game content from space?
