It's quite rare for the world's most famous dataminers to take Reddit rumors seriously. However, this is what happened this weekend, when ShiinaBR shared several pieces of information related to the future of Fortnite and upcoming collaborations.
In fact, a mysterious source has revealed information about Chapter 3, as well as Chapter 2 Season 8, with skins for Ariana Grande and Naruto mentioned.
What makes these rumors more credible is the fact that this source had leaked information about Season 6 in the past, which was proven to be correct.
Of course, all this has to be taken with a grain of salt for now, while we wait and see just what Epic Games decides to do.
Below is a summary of the Reddit post in question.
- Ariana Grande will get a skin and in-game concert.
- Members of the Justice League and Suicide Squad will soon be added to the game.
- Epic Games is reportedly currently in the process of trying to secure the rights to Naruto for the Season 8 Battle Pass.
- An explosive kunai weapon will be added during Season 8 of Chapter 2.
- The Cube will return at the end of the current Season 7. It will apparently be controlled by a Queen character who will also have a role to play in Chapter 3.
- Chapter 3 will completely redesign the island.
- The locations of The Seven will be revealed during Chapter 3.
- Chapter 2 Season 8 will contain an element called The Sideways, Similar to The Upside-Down in Stranger Things, it will release monsters to the world.
- Rideable monsters and mechs will come to the game.
This anonymous source is not the only one claiming the imminent arrival of Naruto cosmetics or an association with Ariana Grande. Last May, at the beginning of its lawsuit against Apple, Epic mistakenly leaked several projects featuring famous names such as LeBron James, The Rock, Naruto and Ariana Grande.
As always with this type of rumor, we'll just have to wait and see what comes to pass.
