Fortnite Getting Annual Battle Pass?

A new patch is now available for Fortnite Battle Royale, updating it to version 11.30. This update outlines what's new, and the most significant change is the addition of split-screen multiplayer for the console editions. There's possibly more on the way, however, as Fortnite News has details found by datamining the new patch (thanks Engadget). They say they've found new Skins, Emotes, Gliders, and Wraps, along with indications that Epic plans to launch an annual battle pass. Here's the text they found on the topic:
"Purchase the 2020 Annual Pass and receive all upcoming 2020 Fortnite Battle Royale: Battle Bundles and 7 Annual Pass exclusive cosmetics. Battle Bundles unlock 25% of content in each Battle Pass instantly upon release."
