Although Batman has long been represented in Fortnite, a well-known Fortnite leaker claims that a new Batman x Fortnite event is underway.
For a long now, Batman fans have been able to play as their beloved caped crusader in Fortnite, but more Batman content may be on the way soon. Batman was introduced to Fortnite in Season 6, but a leaker claims that a new crossover event is on the way.
Batman x Fortnite will take place on October 16 during the DC FanDome Livestream, according to a Fortnite leaker known as Shiina on Twitter. According to Shiina, the crossover would most likely revolve around a Batman comic released on October 26.
Recent Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comics have intersected with Fortnite and contributed to the game’s storyline.
The crossover event may be linked to the upcoming Batman Movie
The forthcoming Batman x Fortnite crossover event, according to Shiina, may be linked to the upcoming movie rather than the comic. The Batman, starring Barry Keoghan and Robert Pattinson, is scheduled to hit theaters early next year.
Shiina did not say if the event would occur in conjunction with the current Fortnite narrative about invading aliens. Beast Boy, Raven, and Superman are among the other DC characters included in Season 7 of Fortnite.
Shiina is a well-known Fortnite leaker who has previously revealed information ahead of time. Shiina has a history of getting battle passes, new seasons, skins, and other topics right.
The leakers’ trustworthiness doesn’t guarantee the authenticity of the upcoming Batman x Fortnite crossover event, but the information has more substance than if they hadn’t gotten things right in the past. Shiina also hinted that Epic Games is working on new Suicide Squad cosmetics and Naruto.
According to Shiina’s latest leak, the upcoming Batman x Fortnite crossover event will take place during the game’s next season. Season 7 of Fortnite will end on September 12th, and the game has just gotten one of its last updates before the next season begins.
To set up Fortnite Season 8, Epic Games promised future material in dialog choices and environmental narrative but hasn’t confirmed the Batman x Fortnite crossover.
Because Fortnite x Batman is leading to a new comic book and a new film, the three ventures may be linked. In both the comic book and the Fortnite battle royale, the Batman may be hinted at. Given that Fortnite has already seen a teaser for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, the forthcoming Batman x Fortnite may get fans excited for the next film.
We'll get more news about the "The Batman/Fortnite Crossover" on October 16 in the DC FanDome Livestream! 👀
It will most likely be related to the comic that releases 10 days later, but it could also be related to the movie "The Batman", which releases in early 2022.

Fortnite players may be treated to new Batman Skins
If Batman x Fortnite happens during the next season, fans may be treated to a new skin or a variation of their current ones. Christian Bale’s Batman is now represented by Armored Batman Zero, Batman Zero, and the Batman Comic Book costume.
Fans of Batman who also play Fortnite will have to wait until October 16 to find out what the crossover event will entail.
