Fortnite Season 5 is nearly half over, with fans speculating on how the current season will play out. Streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan thinks that Kevin the Cube will return before the season ends.
The Fortnite plotline is one of the most confusing, convoluted, and interesting plots in all of gaming. Unlike most other games that spell-out the story for you, Fortnite forces players to connect dots, pay attention to small clues, and create theories as to what the overall Fortnite plot includes.
We’ve seen so many red herrings, dead ends, and unanswered questions over the years that Fortnite has developed its story. At this point, it seems likely that Epic will never give us a concrete conclusion as to what all of this means, as each season seems to create more questions than it answeres.
One thing seems to be clear, however. The Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 seasons are connected. We had standard Season 1’a without many changes, some similar themes during Seasons 2 and 3, then the superhero skins of Season 4.
We’re now in Chapter 2 Season 5. Longtime Fortnite players will remember the Chapter 1 Season 5 theme of “Worlds Collide.” The same thing is happening this season, with Bounty Hunters and locations from the old map appearing in the exact same locations on the new one.
Most attentive Fortnite fans already know about this, but YouTuber and streamer SypherPK took the theory a step further. In a recent video, Sypher suggested that all of this is leading up to Kevin’s return later in the season.
Kevin the Cube first appeared in Fortnite in Chapter 1 Season 5. We’ve already had a ton of teasers that point to Kevin’s eventual return, from in-game hints to direct tweets from Creative Director, Donald Mustard.
Sypher touched on all of these points in his video, including a piece of information we hadn’t heard before, regarding the massive bunker in the southeast section of the Chapter 2 map.
“Here is the catch,” Sypher said when describing what ties all of this together. “If you overlay the Redacted Bunker on this map and compare it to where it was on the old map … Kevin the Cube spawned on the old map exactly where the Redacted Bunker is on the new map.”
This all led to Sypher’s conclusion: that Kevin will return to Fortnite by the end of Season 5 or “at the very least, at the beginning of next season.”
This theory holds up better than a lot of others we’ve seen, and most Fortnite theorists agree that we haven’t seen the last of Kevin.
With the midway point of Chapter 2 Season 5 approaching, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for any movement around that bunker, along with Kevin’s potential escape.
