Is Optimus Prime Coming to Fortnite?

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 is coming in just a couple weeks, and recent rumors suggest Optimus Prime could be joining the Battle Royale.

With all the hype surrounding Fortnite Ranked, including the controversial decisions to remove Siphon and Arena from the game, news regarding the next season has been hard to come by. Usually Epic Games gives some hints on the direction moving forward, but so far, they have yet to confirm anything for the upcoming season.

Reliable Fortnite leakers, though, have reported some major additions coming in update v25.00, including a possible Fortnite x Transformers collaboration.

Is Optimus Prime Coming to Fortnite?

According to ShiinaBR, an Optimus Prime skin is coming to Fortnite in Chapter 4 Season 3. A leaked image of an upcoming loading screen shows the leader of the Autobots running alongside other Fortnite characters.

Transformers: Rise of the Beats, the latest film in the long-running franchise, releases the same day as Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. Although Optimus is the only skin that leaked, players should also expect more iconic characters, like Bumblebee, if Epic Games does drop a traditional crossover with the film.

The image also seems to confirm rumors that the update will be jungle-themed, with a new biome that includes a volcano. After the success of MEGA City, the new neo-Tokyo Tilted Towers, Epic Games could be looking to bring back more iconic POIs that fit the theme. Could we possibly see a remastered Moisty Mire or Wailing Woods back in the game?

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 goes live on June 9.
