Season 8 of Fortnite's second chapter is well underway, and players are battling the menacing cubes that have seemingly taken over the map. But the current season is winding down, and players are already wondering what's in store for the new season.

While Epic Games often keeps many of the details for their upcoming content under wraps up until the new season hits, we have some ideas as to when Season 9 of Fortnite will start and what we can expect to see in it.

When does Season 9 of 'Fortnite' start?

At this time, Epic Games is still very focused on Season 8, as there is no confirmed release date for Season 9 just yet. That being said, we do have an idea as to when Season 8 will conclude, as the current Battle Pass says it's valid until Dec. 5, 2021. This means it's likely that Season 9 will begin on Dec. 6, 2021, though it's possible that the new season's launch date could change depending on production.

What will the theme for Season 9 of 'Fortnite' be?

Toward the end of a season, Epic typically drops hints for players in the game as to what the new season's theme will be, so expect to see some clues popping up in the game within the next couple of weeks. At this time, there aren't any clear ideas as to what the new season will include, and Epic Games hasn't dropped a trailer yet, but there have been a fair amount of leaks to give us an idea as to what players might be able to expect.

Players on Reddit are predicting everything from giant pyramids to broken or corrupted map sections, which wouldn't come as much of a surprise after dealing with destroyed alien ships and sentient bloodthirsty cubes for the past few seasons.

Possibly the most common prediction over what remains of Season 8 and leading into Season 9 is that Cubetown, still apparently in its first stage, will grow bigger as the game continues to update. Whether or not the entire map could be consumed in the near future is still up in the air, but players are hoping that rumors of a Spider-Man-related update are more truth than fiction.
