Currently, we’re in the midst of a fully-fledged Alternate Reality Game (ARG) on top of straightforward teasers for Fortnite’s upcoming Chapter 2 Season 2! New Fortnite-related advertisements have begun to pop up all around the world, in locations such as São Paulo, Brazil and San Francisco, California.

On Saturday, February 15th, 2020, an advertisement was found in a Metro Station of São Paulo, Brazil which contained the Fortnite branding accompanied by a golden handprint and phone number.
Upon calling the number ((21) 3500-8947), callers were answered with a Brazilian recording which translates to the following:
"Yes, sir. The agents have been called. Access card to the vault purchased"
Since then, multiple other advertisements with different numbers and messages have been found all over the world, including San Francisco, Tokyo, Chicago, Melbourne, and more. Here's an infographic showcasing all of the locations, numbers, and messages.
As of the morning of Sunday, February 16, 2020, props found at the Eye Land landmark have begun to turn to gold. These props appear to be random, and include things such as the toilet, couch, and more. A folder with an unknown logo can also be found in the same location.
Fortnite’s Social Media
On Sunday, February 16th, 2020, the official Fortnite social media accounts across Twitter and Instagram have gone gold. A golden Fortnite logo accompanied by a golden handprint placed over the 8-Ball and Scratch artwork can now be found in the display images of the accounts.
On the official Fortnite Discord Server, a new bot named “The Agency” was added which randomly grants users a role named “█████████ ██████” - this translates to 9 characters, 2 spaces, then 6 characters.
When users are granted the role, the bot tells them that they have been “Activated.”
Around 9PM on Monday, February 17th, the first official teaser was released by the Fortnite Twitter account with a familiar logo and a date: Thursday, February 20th, 2020.
Since then, more teasers have released which progressively revealed the blacked-out text. The figure shown is suspected to be the Tier 100 Outfit for the upcoming Battle Pass.
