The first, and arguably most important question, that players have is when Fortnite Season 9 will start. Thanks to a new tweet from the official Fortnite Twitter account, we now have an answer to this question. Fortnite Season 9 will begin on Thursday, May 9. This gives you just a few short days to complete your Fortnite Season 8 challenges before it ends on May 8.

Along with the release date for Fortnite Season 9, a teaser image and text “The Future is Unknown” was revealed. Unlike Fortnite Season 8, Fortnite Season 9 appears to embrace a futuristic theme. The image is somewhat vague, though we’re willing to bet it teases the sort of cosmetic items players can unlock during Season 9 in Fortnite.

As expected, Fortnite Season 9 will also bring with it new challenges and Battle Star opportunities. Be sure to check back, as we’ll be posting updates and guides for Fortnite Season 9 once it goes live on Thursday, May 9. Now that you know when Fortnite Season 9 is scheduled to start, what do you think of the teaser image? Are you looking forward to a possible futuristic theme, or do you think Epic Games has other surprises in store this time around? Let us know down in the comments below!
