Batman could be coming to Fortnite

Fortnite data miners have found Gotham City map and several Batman-themed items in the latest Fortnite game files, which suggests that Epic Games could introduce another crossover event, this time, with the beloved Dark Knight.

Crossover events are nothing new for Epic Games' mammoth Fortnite. The game collaborated with a fair amount of films, TV series and even other games since its release. The latest crossover event introduced Borderlands 3-themed location to game and a couple of items for players to earn. Also, recently a leak suggested that Fortnite and Nintendo's Splatoon could soon join forces.

Today, we have another leak from well known Fortnite data miners Lucas7Yoshi and Fortnite Leaks and Info. They found several new Batman-themed items in the latest game files, suggesting that the Dark Knight could soon pay a visit to Fortnite's island.

Findings include a new map of Gotham City , which features the legendary Bat-Signal spotlight, beaming into the sky. Now, we don't have any official info about this potential crossover event but some players claim that this new location with the Bat-Signal could replace Tilted Town on Fortnite's map. 

As for other leaks, there is a new homing weapon found in the game files. It's named Explosive Batarang and according to the item description, it homes in on players and sticks to walls and explodes if it detects enemies in proximity.

There is also Batman's Grapnel Gun, which players can use to pull themselves towards a target location and then deploy the Bat Cape. Sadly, data miners didn't find any sign of the capes in the game files. There's also a new loading screen, which has been found by Lucas7Yoshi and you can take a look at it below. And last but not least, there is a list of challenges named Welcome to Gotham .

At the moment, it is unknown when exactly will this Batman-themed event drop or what could it mean. Is it possible that Rocksteady are set to announce their new game? There's also another clue to this whole Batman story. Epic Games are giving an unknown Batman game for free on their store next week, which could be a tease for the crossover event or another hint that Rocksteady announcement is imminent. We'll just have to wait and see.
