Following the events of the Volcano’s eruption here at the end of Season 8, Titled Towers and Retail Row are no more. That leaves fans with a lot of questions as we prepare to head into Fortnite Season 9. What’s coming next? According to the latest tweet from the official Fortnite Twitter account, “The Future is Unknown”.

Epic Games is already teasing the new season, which appears to kick off this coming Thursday, May 9. In the image shared on the official Twitter, players can get a glimpse at what appears to be the next season’s skin. Each week Fortnite offers a weekly reset, which usually takes place around 9AM ET. It stands to reason that Fortnite Season 9 will start on May 9 at roughly 9AM ET based on this information alone.

Of course, there’s no official confirmation just yet, so we’ll continue to pay close attention to the Fortnite Twitter account to see if any more teases or hints about the upcoming season are revealed. For now, though, players still have a little time to finish up their Season 8 challenges, like the one that tasks them to dance between three ice sculptures. No matter how far along you are, Season 9 is coming, and that means it’s time to buckle down and clean things up.

Now that you know the Fortnite Season 9 start date and time, be sure to head back over to our Fortnite guides hub for even more help tackling all of the problems that Epic Games throws your way.
