It appears that Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 1 is finally coming to a close for good. While we received an updated release date for Season 2 from Epic Games, we hadn’t seen or heard anything since then. However, now, there are multiple teasers in-game and even out in the world. From posters in famous cities to an updated Twitter page to in-game changes, there’s a lot to go over for Season 2, especially involving gold.

Is gold the theme for Fortnite Season 2?

Last week, we reported on the images of gold furniture in the PC files of Fortnite. Dataminers dug around and pulled some props that were covered in gold, leading some to believe it was going to be the fourth material. Although, this was somewhat debunked by other dataminers, saying this didn’t look like a possibility.

Well, fast-forward to now, and those same data-miners are rethinking their original thought. As of right now, the official Fortnite Twitter has a gold theme with a new profile picture and header. Also, there are now gold props in various houses and buildings in Fortnite itself.

This clearly matches up with the gold props that were discovered in the files of the game. However, what’s new is the gold handprint that we see in the header. Before today, we’d never seen that in Fortnite. The header isn’t the only place that this handprint appears though.

In posters and screens all across the world, we can see this same handprint.

Of course, fans quickly called the number that appeared on the screen. According to @HYPEX, the number states three different lines before hanging up the phone, which can be seen in the tweet above. No one quite knows what this means as of yet, though there are some guesses.

Theories for Season 2

One of the biggest theories is that Season 2 will have to do with King Midas from Greek mythology. King Midas has the ability to turn anything he touches into gold, which would match the theme for Season 2. Another corresponding theory is that a special agent, “Meowscles,” is doing something with Oro, a skeleton who is said to possess the ability of King Midas.

Currently, no one knows for sure what’s going to happen in Season 2. However, when someone does know something, we’ll be sure to let you know here at Daily Esports.
