With Season 7 fast approaching in Fortnite, three new skins which are yet to be released have leaked online, giving fans a first glimpse at what new cosmetics they can expect.

As with every new season in Fortnite, there will be a new theme for Season 7, along with new cosmetics – and some map changes also expected, with snow spotted and a wintery scene shown in teasers.

Usually all the new cosmetics would be kept a guarded secret until after the new season begins, but the iOS App Store appears to have leaked three skins ahead of the start of Season 7.

Although these have not been confirmed by Epic Games, there is actually a big clue that these are definitely real skins dropping in Season 7.

Along with the three main skins which are visible, a small eye shape is also present in the far right of the image, where it is cut off.

The catwoman-like skin on the left is also clearly the same shape as the skin shown close up in the second teaser for Season 7, appearing to be snowboarding.

This eye shape almost certainly belongs to another skin which was leaked previously, with a female character wearing a onesie. This skin was leaked and then shortly after removed from the game files.

You can also see the outline of the black cat skin in the second teaser for Season 7.

Because they are shown off as the feature image for Season 7, these skins will likely be available as part of the Season 7 battle pass.

Following the announcement of Fortnite Creative, some players also notice this character in the featured image, who appears to be wearing a skin not yet in the game, although it is difficult to tell from a distance.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
