What if the latest information on Chapter 2 Season 3 of the Battle Royale came from… Save the World? In Fortnite, these two game modes are mostly unrelated — their content and patche notes are totally different, even though they were released at the same time by Epic Games. There are exceptions, and this may be the case for the latest official STW article.
As FireMonkey pointed out, the official article in question ends with: “Stay tuned, Commanders! Things are starting to get tropical.”
Following the near-flooding of the map, it’s possible to see the tropical climate generalized over Apollo Island. One of Tabor Hill’s leaks reports sharks in the waters for Season 3.
On the publication, we can also see two skins — which have no specific link with any tropical climate — and a kind of pirate cannon. The latter will also catch our attention since piracy could be one of the new themes of Chapter 2 Season 3, linked to flooding and the birth of new archipelagos. This theory isn’t confirmed at all.
It’s also possible that the piracy theme is only in Epic Games’ pipes to set up a standard summer event, unrelated to Season 3. It should also be remembered that piracy is a theme that was already widely exploited during Chapter 1 Season 8. Not sure to see Jack Sparrow’s colleagues landing again on battle royale Island, so soon after?

After a weekend of silence to support current social movements, Epic Games appear to be testing again — with several dataminers highlighting builds of future versions of the game.
