The Fortnite map is an ever-changing beast that in some way or another continues to evolve from season to season. Big events at the end of the season have historically transformed the map, and Fortnite data miner Lucas7yoshi believes that they have found evidence that might suggest “a new map is likely, or at least a massively changed one.”
Lucas7yoshi posted a tweet with a list of names for new locations that might be on the Fortnite map. The location names have been found in the code files of the game, and they all sound quite familiar, which seems to give some legitimacy to the data mined locations.
Gonna go ahead and say a new map is likely, or atleast a massively changed one
Kinda proof is in the reply to this https://t.co/Gv8UzgEXKW

From the list above, some locations have some similarities with the locations we’ve seen in previous seasons. For example, Weeping Woods is not far from the Wailing Woods, which was ultimately replaced by Sunny Steps.
Other leaks, as well as the location names, also seem to suggest large changes are on the horizon, including a loading screen showing the Fortnite characters waving farewell to the Battle Bus as it flies off into the distance. Also, Lucas7yoshi uncovered what appears to be a new set of challenges called “Last Stop,” related to the Battle Bus ‘ leaked loading screen image.
And to add even more fuel to the fire, another leak found by FortTory suggests that an upcoming event is called “The End.” Could this be an indication as we know it at the end of the map? We’re going to have to wait and see.
Of course, this is all speculation and with any leaks we can’t know for sure, but a lot of evidence seems to suggest that in the run up to Season 11 we may see some big changes coming to Fortnite’s world.
