The popular free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite has piled up rumors about its upcoming Season 8 in Fortnite Chapter 2. The current Season 7 of Fortnite has been a huge success with the addition of various impressive content like Batman Skins, Bench Upgrade system, and UFO-themed pop culture reference. Now, having reached the mid-point of the current season fans are eagerly looking for the next major update in the form of Season 8.
When will Fortnite Season 7 end
Leakers and Data-miners have suggested that Season 7 of Fortnite is expected to end on September 12th, 2021 right around Halloween week. These miners were able to pull this content from the Fortnite servers when the developers were executing routine maintenance for the servers. Usually, a new season begins a day after the current one ends. In technical terms, Season 8 of Fortnite Chapter 2 may begin on September 13th. This is just an assumption, as the official date for Season 7 to expire may extend if Epic Games add extra content or events.

There are many speculated rumors about the upcoming Season 8 of Fortnite. Recently, a noted data miner revealed that the developers are going to introduce a new element called The Sideways. This element will act as a portal and allow players to travel between the various locations of the map instantly. If this rumor turns out to be true then there will be huge changes to the map in the feature.
There is also a rumor that the next season might see the return of the walking dead franchise collaboration with their items and skins. The data miner also added that a glider is being developed with torches and light for the upcoming Season 8.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 Theme
The current season of Fortnite is based on the Alien theme and its pop culture. Players all around the world are currently enjoying the skins, contents, and quests related to the theme. According to the story, Kevin the cube is expected to return.
