Right after Epic Games teased the return of Thanos, and maybe Marvel’s Avengers, one of Fortnite’s most reliable leakers has revealed the developers aren’t playing games. A new skin is coming, part of a Thanos Cup tournament. 

The Fortnite developers have set, and raised, the standard for crossovers with pop culture phenomenons, with Marvel’s Avengers playing a key role at times.

Prior to the launch of Endgame, the Avengers returned to Fortnite with their own limited-time mode, and Epic even gave them their own themed season in Chapter 2.

While some fans have called for different crossovers – and some have even called for the end of crossovers altogether – we now know Thanos, at the very least, will be returning this season.

There are a number of popular Marvel characters in Fortnite already.

The Avengers villain, who is focused on destroying everything in his path, has played a key role in these crossovers, with players being able to wield the Infinity Gauntlet and use his powers before.

While Season 7 is all about an alien invasion, and you can even use Rick and Morty skins, Epic dropped a major hint that Thanos could be joining them on June 18.

“He is inevitable…” they tweeted on June 18, alongside a few different colored emojis. Aside from his inevitable catchphrase being used, the emojis appear to represent the Infinity Stones that Thanos seeks to possess at all times.

While the teaser didn’t give too much away, these sort of tweets is what they’ve done previously to tease skins – and we now know that’s correct.

Soon after the teaser dropped, leaker ShiinaBR revealed a new Thanos Cup tournament is coming soon in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7.

 

The teaser itself created a flurry of initial hype for another Marvel crossover, though it looks like it will be exclusively tournament-based.

The skin as well as two other cosmetics will be available, kicking off on June 21.
