Fortnite is in its own league when it comes to collaborating with other well-known brands. They’ve previously partnered with Marvel Studios during the release of Avengers Infinity War. And, during the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum in the cinemas, Epic Games released a John Wick skin along with an event called “Wick’s Bounty.”
Now, with the upcoming major movie blockbuster Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker set to release in December, Epic Games was able to capitalize on fan’s excitement.
