Fortnite Season 6: It looks like we could be waiting even longer for the next season of the battle royale game

Season 6 could be delayed even further, is it the purple cube's fault?

The formerly scheduled in date for the Fortnite Season 6 has been pushed back.

Sources are now saying that it could be pushed back even further.

We have now gone past the halfway point of the Season 5 battle pass and the timer counting down the days you need to get to tier 100 by has consistently said Septemeber 17th, meaning Season 6 would begin the next day on the 18th.

The map is likely to completely change before Season 6

However, nothing in the world of Fortnite is ever so simple.

The date has now changed to September 24th giving players a bit of extra time to complete those challenges and secure some extra exp to unlock the Ragnorock skin.

According to the Fortnite Leaks Twitter account Season 6 could be delayed until as late as October 2nd.

With the final weekly challenges coming out on September 13th, players will get almost three weeks to finish off what they have got to do in season 5.

The delays to Season 6 could be due to the big event coming so late in the season.

We will likely see even more damage to the map in Season 5

Fortnite Season 5’s big event is finally here.

It has arrived in the form of a giant purple cube that is slowly making its way across the Fortnite battle royale map.

The purple cube arrived on Friday and appears to be slowly moving towards its final destination rolling over once every 1 hour 43 minutes.

Don’t get to close to the cube or you may regret it

What’s so special about this cube?

The cube charges up your shield when you are close to it, however, you won’t want to get too close as it will catapult you miles making you take some hefty fall damage in the process.

The cube can be dangerous if you stand underneath it…

There has also been a lot of speculation as to where the cube will stop.

With Fortnite Leaks on Twitter believing that the cube’s path will most likely take it through Salty Springs, Loot Lake and Pleasent Park.

Drawing together other theories it seem’s most likely that it will be Salty Springs that will be affected by the purple cube.

This theory makes a lot of sense and has some pretty convincing evidence.

Reddit user ShadoukenGames traced the direction every stone head was facing.

It turns out they are all looking towards Salty Springs.

A popular destination located just South of Dusty Divot.

It also just so happens to be located underneath the largest rift on the map…

Coincidence? We think not.

The bush is something we wouldn’t mind going in Season 6

That’s not all though, as located in Salty Springs is a secret underground bunker.

Players are still not sure what relevance this bunker plays but have theorised that it could be something to do with the stone heads.

Season 6 could be in for a great start if all these theories turn out to be correct.
