Epic Games first made mention of a possible Gifting System in a Fortnite Battle Royale State of Development V4 blog post back in February, when they said "If you’re feeling generous, we have a feature on the horizon just for you ;)"

However, there has been little additional information provided about it since then, as Epic has not even confirmed if and when it will be arriving.

This recent flurry of game files does indicate that a possible near-future release could be in the works, and it will be interesting to see how the system will work.
