A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.

Fortnite is no stranger to crossovers, and recent hints and leaks have suggested the next one could see The Predator crash-land and hunt for prey in Stealthy Stronghold.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 ended the Fortnite x Marvel crossover, for the time being. However, more crossovers have already begun, including ones with The Mandalorian and God of War. 

But that’s not all—teasers and leaks hinting towards other crossovers keeping popping up left, right, and center. First, signs pointed towards a potential crossover with G.I Joe. Then, a crossover with Halo leaked and was more or less confirmed.

Now, people have found evidence that another interesting crossover is in the cards, and it could happen soon. Fortnite players might cross paths with an imposing alien warrior from another world, Predator.

A crossover between Fortnite and Predator has been hinted at both in-game and in leaked files. It all revolves around Stealthy Stronghold; a new POI introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.

The first batch of evidence is something players can see for themselves. Stealthy Stronghold includes three references to the movie, including an actual logo of the Predator.

“Fortnite is teasing a PREDATOR collab in Stealthy Stronghold,” said T5G. “Check this out. Truck being used as a generator (in the Predator movie) plus the crashed helicopter and the LOGO of the predator locking onto something all in the same POI.”

The second piece of evidence popped up in an official post on social media. “Listen to the Jones’ tapes at 10 seconds,” said T5G.

“He conveniently says “Predators,” and then you hear a roar that sounds identical to predators,” they added.

If that wasn’t enough, a leaker named FortTory also discovered some files that add even more evidence to the claims. “There are files referencing to a possible boss at Stealthy Strongholds,” he said.

So whoever could this possible boss be?” he added. “The Predator as some people theorize or someone else?

All in all, the evidence is damning, and it seems like a Fortnite x Predator crossover is imminent. But nothing is official until it’s confirmed. For all we know, it might not make it into the game.

Still, it’s an exciting prospect that is generating lots of hype. Time will whether it all comes to fruition, but the signs are all there.
