Fortnite has been a great sandbox to add several different IP characters in the game, from DC and Marvel heroes to other gaming greats like Kratos from God of War. Now it looks like one other video game icon is making its way into the hit Battle Royale game.
Dataminer @ShiinaBR has shared that Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed has been spotted hidden within the game’s files:
We don’t have any idea when Epic Games plans to put Ezio in the game, but Assassin’s Creed does hit its 15th anniversary this year. It’s possible that we could be getting Ezio in Fortnite come November—the same month that the first Assassin’s Creed game launched back in 2007.
If anything, Fortnite has become the perfect avenue to market characters for kids. They had introduced a bunch of Marvel characters and weapons around the time that Avengers: Endgame came out, and just recently they brought in two versions of Nathan Drake to coincide with the release of Uncharted the movie.
If you ask me, there are probably going to be more character drops throughout the year. Maybe they can bring in Moon Knight when the series launches later this month. We also know that Batman is in the game, so maybe they’ll release a skin based on the new movie soon? It’s just a guess.
Ezio hasn’t been officially announced for Fortnite, but my guess is he comes out sometime around November. Fortnite is now playable for PS4, Xbox One, iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
