Shortly after that tweet was posted, Hypex announced that he was able to figure out the code. In the tweet, he credits ChatGPT, revealing that the numerical cipher actually reads, “CRACK THE CODE.” Even though this clue is a bit vague, it does align with Fortnite’s Most Wanted Event, which is themed all around thieves and heist-like items that players can unlock for free if they complete specific challenges before February 28. This is likely the first of many teasers that’ll point to Chapter 4, Season 2, which is expected to launch sometime after March 8, the last day of the current season.
