Fortnite Season 5 mirrors a lot of the themes from its Chapter 1 counterpart. Some fans are using the new portals to suggest that Kevin could make his return to the game soon.
The plotline of Fortnite is one of the more convoluted stories in gaming. We think we’ve generally cracked the format that Fortnite is using, but that doesn’t mean that we know exactly what’s going to happen.
One of the most iconic characters in Fortnite is the giant cube that appeared on the map during Chapter 1 Season 5. The community named the cube Kevin, and Epic later adopted the name and added it to the story.
Most fans assume that Kevin will return to Fortnite at some point, but when? Well, some players are connecting the Season 5 portals to the return of Kevin – possibly at the end of the current season or at the beginning of next.
Season 5 Portals hint at Kevin’s return
One common Fortnite theory is that Kevin is located in the redacted bunker in the southeast of the map. The bunker is located in the exact spot where Kevin first appeared in Chapter 1, which is the primary fact behind this theory.
As Season 5 progresses, the bounty hunter portals that have opened around the map started to take shape. A few Fortnite theorists, including u/trewasqo, connected these dots to make a cube. Of course, this would point to Kevin’s return to the Fortnite map.
This is probably intentional on the part of Epic, but it could be that fans are using confirmation bias to make these portals fit the theme. One more portal could appear before the end of the season and wreck the whole theory.

This could be considered a bit of a reach on the part of fans, but anything’s possible. We’d be…
