See you on the flip side! Due to a leak, fans now know that Chapter 3's island will be the opposite side of Apollo Island, as the Island will flip like a coin in the ocean.
As for Agent Jones, Donald Mustard hinted at his return in a Twitter banner image showing Jones in the Zero Point Chamber featured in Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point. Jones can also be seen in the ocean swimming away from a tidal wave caused by the Island's flip in the leaked clip.
There may be a stronger DC tie to the start of Chapter 3 as well, with the Batman Who Laughs currently running amok on the Island after the events of Batman/Fortnite: Foundation. What does the alternate reality version of Bruce Wayne have planned, and is it in the IO's best interest or will Dr. Slone find herself pit against a new villain?
