With the inevitability of Season Six of Fortnite on the horizon, many are wondering just what this means for the The Island.

With each new season, Epic Games releases new skins, new weapons and occasionally new locations. Whether simply revamped or entirely new, changes to the map itself are a hotly debated topic, as gamers chime in with their hopes and ideas as to what a new map could look like.

One thread on Reddit focused on how some players believe Epic Games has traded in originality of map design for stability, focusing more on the crossovers prevalent in Season Five. Redditor yesjon, who started the thread, opened the discussion with this:

"[...] 90% of the locations on our current map began in C2S1, which started over a year ago. These locations have had no/next to no changes after all this time. [...] I feel like the dev's are trying to make the game too realistic, when Fortnite is supposed to be a fun cartoony game."

So what do gamer's want to see change?

While an entirely new map is unlikely, we may see the return of popular locations. However, given that the Zero Point is rapidly becoming unstable as we creep closer to March 16, could it be possible that the destruction of The Island is more feasible than expected?

Gamers often linked back to features of Chapter One maps which involved jungles and volcanoes, not just open plains. Never mind the lackluster naming of several locations:

Gamers seem quite dissatisfied with the current map. Hopefully Season Six will bring with it a return to Fortnite's roots as a wild and wacky adventure.
