Of course, there is always a chance that Epic could delay Season 9, but at this time there is no reason to think this will be the case.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 9 Theme

There has been no word, offical or leaked, about the theme of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 9, but it is probably safe to say that it will deal with the outcome of IO's battle against The Sideways. It is also possible that Agent Jones and The Foundation will enter the picture once again, seeing as players have been getting glimpses of The Foundation through cutscenes since he was blown from The Spire in Season 7.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 9 Battle Pass

Just as there is no word on the theme of Chapter 2, Season 9, there is no information about the Battle Pass at this time. Players can expect the Battle Star system to return, as well as the cost of the Battle Pass to remain 950 V-Bucks (US $7.99 / UK £5.88.)
