Epic recently updated the in-game news feed to announce that the new item will be coming to Fortnite Battle Royale. The description of the item reads: "Stealth and utility make surprises!". You can see the shadow bomb image from the game reports below.
Epic released a v8.50 update on Wednesday and the v8.40 update on Wednesday, so it is not possible to guess when the upcoming content update will be. However, Epic posted most of the updates on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so we can expect to see more updates in the last two days.
We will keep you up to date with the release of additional shadow bomb information. We will also inform you of the date when the last Season 8 update will be released.
