Ninja doesn’t think that Fortnite Season 2 is going to be as crazy as many of us expect. Here’s why.
Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has been the face of Fortnite since the game first started to gain popularity. Both the streamer and the game seemed to have a symbiotic relationship that helped to propel one another to stardom.
Two years after Fortnite released, Ninja is still streaming it as his main game and recently received his own skin and emote. This doesn’t mean that the streamer is going to lie about his expectations for the future.
During a recent stream, Ninja expressed his hesitations about what’s to come with the next Fortnite season. The streamer said that he doesn’t expect very many changes to the game in the near future.
“I think the season is going to be very average,” Ninja told his viewers. “And by average, I mean I don’t think it’s going to be as godly and god-tier as people think it needs to be, now.”
Ninja went on to explain that a lot of people surrounding the game have told players not to overreact to the Chaos Physics engine update. He feels as though Epic has “deprived” the community of the constant updates we’ve grown accustomed to over the last two years.

“With the information that we’re given, right now, I don’t see anything crazy happening. I don’t see any crazy map changes,” Ninja admitted. “Epic has never, just, completely changed and blown up a map for one season, like, this early on.”
Ninja is right, here. Epic usually gives us a slow burn of a season to generate hype for map changes coming in the next one. They didn’t do that with Season 1.
All of this would be fine if we didn’t have to wait so long for the new season. There’s a ton of pressure on Epic Games right now. Let’s hope that they deliver.
