Fortnite’s Season 9 has begun, bringing new skins, a new battle pass, a new v9.0 update, and more. All the new content means there’s plenty for dataminers to delve into-and they’ve been at it already. It seems there’s a John Wick event coming to Epic’s battle royale game.
According to Twitter user and Fortnite dataminer FortTory, a set of John Wick challenges are on the way to Fortnite very soon. It appears they’ll task players with collecting coins, dealing damage with the new combat shotgun, and winning a match of a seemingly new mode named Wick’s Bounty. The challenges also make reference to a new gun named the tactical assault rifle.
Another Fortnite leaker, Lucas7yoshi, has uncovered a new John Wick cosmetic set that seems to have the codename «assassin suit.» Fortnite received a series of John Wick-style cosmetics named the hired gun set all the way back in Season 3, over a year ago. With John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum coming to theaters on May 17, now would be a perfect time for an official crossover event to occur.
Avengers: Endgame-and Infinity War before it-received similar treatment just recently, with a new Fortnite event based on the Avengers franchise and an entire set of Avengers challenges. John Wick fans have plenty more to look forward to, meanwhile: Thomas Was Alone and Volume developer Mike Bithell is working on John Wick Hex, a new action-strategy game based on the films.
