Epic Games confirmed the Fortnite John Wick limited time event is coming soon in a couple of teases today. The Fortnite Twitter account initially tweeted four emojis that seemed to be teasing a John Wick collaboration: a man, a dog companion, a pencil, and money bags.
The emoji tweet wasn’t the only tease, though. A more concrete confirmation was found within the game itself. If players log in right now to Fortnite, they will be greeted with the news section like always. A new addition to the news, though, is a tease for the event coming soon.
The image shows a picture that is similar to the “C” from the Continental hotel that is featured in the John Wick movies. The picture is accompanied by a simple caption that says “Tick tock, Mr. Wick” and notes that it is coming soon. This essentially confirms the limited time event that leaked earlier today via data miners.
Players can expect a Wick’s Bounty limited time mode as well as themed cosmetic items, according to the leak. There will be the opportunity to receive a new John Wick skin that is different from The Reaper skin that was a tier 100 reward in season three. There is also a golden token back bling that can be unlocked through event challenges and more.
John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum releases Friday, May 17, in theaters. Given the timing of this tease and the movie’s upcoming release date, it is likely that the event will begin tomorrow, Thursday, May 16. Epic used a similar schedule for its previous limited time collaboration with Avengers: Endgame.
