It looks like Master Chief from the Halo series could also be making an appearance in the new season of Fortnite.
Following the leak that Kratos from the God Of War series is coming to the game, new images have surfaced indicating that Master Chief will also be arriving this season.
Chapter 2, Season 5 began yesterday (December 2) and the theme is based around gathering hunters from different universes to keep chracters from escaping “The Loop”. The season’s new battle pass includes Star Wars characters, such as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda.
According to Twitter user Mang0e_, images of Master Chief in Fortnite were discovered on 4Chan and uploaded by a known leaker who claims to work at Epic Games. The same leaker had apparently previously unearthed the Salty Towers and Mandalorian mythics before they were officially revealed.
See the Master Chief skin below:
I've tracked the source of this original image to 4Chan.

Fortnite has also introduced a new subscription-based service. Priced at £9.99, members will be granted access to the Battle Pass, along with 1,000 V-Bucks and other incentives such as exclusive cosmetic items.
The ability to use in-game video chat was also brought into Fortnite in the past few weeks. By using a smart device, players can download an app to double their device as a camera to stay in constant touch with groups while competing in the battle royale.
The popularity of Fortnite has only risen since the on-going coronavirus pandemic, with special in-game events such as a virtual Travis Scott concert earlier this year. It’s been reported Scott earned $20million for the nine-minute show.
