Fortnite map is a dynamic map. Epic Games loves to change the Fortnite Map. These changes are done for many reasons. The most significant one is the season beginnings. Generally each season we can see one significant change to the map. This is a nice way to make players feel like the environment that they are playing is changing. Fortnite is one of the most updated games around. Probably the most updated one. In the last two years, the game has been updated hundreds of times. But since Epic Games want Fortnite to last for a very long time. So, we doubt that we will stop seeing updates for this game.
The second reason for the map changes is events. When there is an event approaching, we will start seeing some clues around the map. These changes can be many things. sometimes it can be map-wide or sometimes just a small POI. However, this time we can see something coming up map-wide. There are blizzards and snowstorms around the Fortnite map. The new year is nearly upon us, and we can be sure that Epic Games is getting ready for another event. Probably a Fortnite New Year event. The map is becoming colder and colder. Since Epic Games decided to extend Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 for this event, we feel hyped by it. We just had the Star Wars Event and now we will have the Fortnite New Year.

Of course, other things are coming into effect. There is a chance of Epic Games making each season longer from now on. Sometimes if a season is very short, it feels like Epic Games is not able to keep up with the amount of work. Maybe from now on, we will see lesser seasons but more robust ones. Also, we need to keep in mind that even though Fortnite is the most popular game in the world, we are sure that the player base is getting smaller. This must be a big concern for Epic Games. of course they will have other projects. However, Fortnite is a proven and successful game.

The event for the Fortnite New Year might be at our door. As the map gets colder, we can be sure that something will happen. Maybe something not very major, since there is still more than a month to the next season opening. However, even though there is a small chance, maybe we might be seeing some clues about the Fortite lore during this Newyear event. Epic Games is trying to build a story around the Fortnite Battle Royale for so long, even though it is very hard to create one for it. Last time, we have seen the Stranger coming and the creation of the new Fortnite world. This map is different from the last map. However, we are sure that the players will not want to wait for another 10 seasons for the next Fortnite Battle Royale map.
