Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a great successor to Chapter 1 and Fortnite Chapter 3 might also walk on those lines. Fortnite Chapters are a collection of different seasons and usually, one Chapter in Fortnite is ten seasons long. The last season is the finale, where the game sets the stage for the next Chapter. A new Chapter also brings a brand new map to the table. The current Fortnite season (Season 8) has reached its halfway point, but it looks like we might not get a Season 9.
Instead, rumor has it that the developer Epic Games may catch players by surprise with a sooner than expected arrival of Chapter 3. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 will conclude on December 5, which is almost one month from now. However, the Fortnite community is now speculating that whether a ninth and tenth season on the current map will occur or not. Few in-game clues hint at the arrival of Chapter 3, which fans have spotted. There’s an in-game book-reading emote that subtly nods to getting to the “end of the chapter.” While Fortnite Season 8’s new debutant and a plausible antagonist, the Cube Queen, has several associated items which hint that the time is running out and about the end of the Island.
Chapter 2 is now the exact same length as Chapter 1 (747 days)
If Season 1, 2 & 5 didn't take +100 days we would've been at the end of Season X right now.

Even some notable Fortnite leakers are now suggesting that Chapter 3 is almost upon us. HYPEX, a prominent Fortnite leaker, recently tweeted that Chapter 2 is “now the exact same length” as Chapter 1, with only eight seasons.
Just saying, there are many theories with quite a few good arguments about whether we'll go straight to Chapter 3 after this season.

ShiinaBR, another Fortnite data miner in their tweet, reveals that numerous convincing theories are hinting at Chapter 3 coming straight after the current season. The leaker also adds that the well-known streamer SypherPK, in his newest video description, has asserted that “there won’t be a Season 9 or Season X from the information” he has gotten so far.” Here’s what SypherPK’s video description reads:
“I know you’re not going to believe me but I have received information that Fortnite Chapter 3 is in a month. There wont be a Season 9 or Season X from the information I’ve received. To prove it, I’ll tease you guys at the end of this video.”
Previous leaks on Reddit also suggest that Fortnite Chapter 3 might be the successor of Season 8. Most of the leaks by the Redditor have been accurate so far. But whether we’ll see an early departure of Chapter 2 still remains to be seen.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
