New leaks have surfaced regarding a possible Alien series-inspired reveal for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.
The Bounty Hunter season theme continues as Fortnite players are getting everything but confirmation of a crossover between Epic Games and Fox’s popular sci-fi horror franchise, Alien. Rumors originally began circulating after the release of Fortnite’s Predator event and skin. However, it appears the hunter may not be the only one careening toward the island from galactic heights.
Prolific Fortnite Twitter informant ShiinaBR came forward at 6 a.m. on Feb. 24 to share the latest portal appearance and sounds associated with it. According to players and fans of the series, the corridor shown bears a striking resemblance to that in the game Alien: Isolation, and the chilling sound emanating from it must be none other than the infamous Xenomorph, itself.
The information seemed so convincing that even fellow leaker HYPEX jumped in to voice their agreement.
While some players previously thought that the next Alien-related skin coming to Fortnite would be Ripley, portrayed in film by Sigourney Weaver. However, this has since been ruled out as the next skin is allegedly supposed to be not only male but also “extra large” according to an animation leak from Feb. 18.
However, despite the mounting evidence, DBLTAP cannot confirm the veracity of these rumors due to the lack of comment from Epic Games or its associates. Although, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if these rumors proved true.
