The announcement came shortly after Epic Games‘ massively popular battle royale game revealed trailers for the fifth season of its second chapter, which also brings to the game Din Djarin and Baby Yoda aka Grogu from The Mandalorian. Rumors originally surfaced suggesting that the God of War character would be joining the new season after images of the new skin made the rounds on Twitter accounts affiliated to Fornite leaks. Sony then officially confirmed the news with its own tweet via a “reality log” announcing Kratos’ arrival.
Those in the community are now also expecting Halo‘s Master Chief to come to Fortnite as well following similar leaks of a skin based around a space marine suit from the franchise, and another cosmetic depicting a UNSC Pelican dropship. For now, Xbox has yet to comment on the leaks, so fans of the game should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.
