Fortnite: Season 6 Might Be Biblical (No, Really)

Ready to rumble.

Fortnite Agent Jones

The final teaser for Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 6 has been revealed, and it looks like Agent Jones is preparing to fight. It also seems like Epic might be referencing John 3:16. No, genuinely.

Revealed on Twitter ahead of Season 6’s Zero Crisis event, the teaser shows Agent Jones now pretty much in his Jonesy guise, no sleeves in sight. Is he getting ready to take on The Seven, or The Order?

He is also wearing a part of the hunters he has been hiring across the course of Season 5. There’s Mando’s shoulderplates, Ryu’s glove, Kratos’ handwrap, Predator’s wrist-blade, and what looks like the headwear from Aliens, but there’s likely other nods too. He even has a Snake Eyes tattoo. Nothing on Tron, The Walking Dead or Terminator from the looks of things, but that would be a tad overboard.

It also looks as if the Fortnite island is on fire, like the Zero Point has exploded and set everything aflame. It’s hard to pinpoint the location, but it does seem like it’s near Coral Castle based on the hills and big body of water.

We’ve even had a hint that this would happen in a previously leaked loading screen.

Will Season 6 be post-apocalyptic? Will Jones manage to protect the island, or will it have “fixed itself” all over again like it did at the start of Chapter 2?


Fortnite 3:16?

This might be kind of a reach, but there seems to be something going on with Fortnite and John 3:16, a famous biblical verse.

Not only does Season 6 take place on the 16th day of the third month (03/16), but the Zero Crisis cinematic is also going to be three minutes and 15 seconds long. While that’s not sixteen, YouTube does make these mistakes all the time with exact timings. We used to publish sixty second video game reviews that were always one minute long exactly in Premiere Pro but ended up showing as 59 seconds on YouTube.

Oh, and one last thing: Agent Jones’ first name is John.

Here’s what the bible verse is, from the King James Bible version:

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

So, this obviously won’t be an exact translation into Fortnite, but could it reference Agent Jones sacrificing himself for the island, ending up in him being stuck in a loop as Jonesy and all his variations for the rest of time? Judging from the fact that the island is going through some kind of rapture with things seemingly falling from the sky, maybe this is all one big biblical reference.

It might be a little heavy for the game if so, but it could be intended as “subtle” storytelling for the mature Fortnite crowd, though bible allegories are usually the exact opposite of subtle. It could also mean absolutely nothing, but it would be absolutely wild if Fortnite was getting biblical ahead of a new season.


When Does Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 6 Kick Off?

We won’t have long to wait to find out answers, as Season 6 will take place on Tuesday, March 16th, immediately following the end of downtime, which starts at 4AM GMT. The Zero Crisis cinematic for Season 6 will premiere at 8AM GMT before that and give us a look at what to expect from the upcoming season, which will last for just over three minutes.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
