You couldn’t have been more wrong.
The Kraken is, in fact, real and the deep ocean dwelling creature is more than likely making its way to the Battle Royale map in order to wreak havoc and chaos.

Images of the Kraken have been sprouting up around the map for a good few seasons now, however, since the launch of Fortnite Season 8 we have seen the teasers increase dramatically.
Looking at the Fortnite Season 8 map, we can see that Lazy Lagoon, the home area of pirating, has a river connecting it to the ocean.
It has been rumoured by Fortnite players that this is where the Kraken will stage its attack on the map.
Similar to the previous live events EPIC Games has hosted, like the Marshmello concert and the rocket launch, the Kraken will arrive just before Season 9 starts.
It will be likely that the whole lobby will have to team up and fight the Kraken, making it the first community boss that Fortnite players will have to defeat.
