John Wick has been in the news quite a bit lately with a recent game announcement and movie love, now it looks like Epic Games is getting in on the fun with a new crossover event for their hit battle royale game: Fortnite. 

The possibility of the new event was leaked by known Fortnite leaker @Lucas7Yoshi_ earlier today and now it looks like Epic Games themselves are confirming the rumors with a strategic set of emojis that couldn’t be more obvious if they tried. But first, let’s scope out the leaks:

This of course builds off of the Wick’s Bounty LTM and challenges that were first found last week, sending players out on the hunt for coins.

Fortnite is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. You can also learn more about the game right here with our nifty hub for all of the latest and greatest in battle royale news.
