Just like with previous seasons, Epic Games continues to drop subtle teasers about the upcoming new season for Fortnite and now a third puzzle piece has been revealed, notably keeping in-tube with the Pirate / Beast theme seen thus far:

Of fire and ash
Battle it out
And loot the stash.

With the serpentine "beast" theme, it's clear that those eggs players found earlier at the beginning of Season7 weren't for dragons, but instead the creatures seen in the teaser. Or maybe that's Epic Games' version of a dragon, really anything could happen.
When players first happened upon them, it was assumed that they were dragon eggs based on the look and size of them. With seeing the previous two teasers and how monstrous these Serpentine creatures appear to be, it's clear we won't be getting that Game of Thrones crossover we've been hoping for.
As far as the previous teasers go:

Within the cave...
But beware of those
Who arrive on waves.

Loot that has been lost
Can always be found.

Season 8 will commence on February 28th and will kick off with a grand event bringing the current season to a close. Like previous seasons, players will have new cosmetics, map changes, and new challenges to take on and with the pirate theme being wildly apparent and 'the prisoner' skin unlocked to reveal a king of fire to contrast that of the Ice King, well - it definitely looks like the new season will be just as explosive as those prior.
