Fortnite seems to be teasing It Chapter Two crossover

Fortnite seems to be teasing It Chapter Two crossover

Players found a red balloon in Pleasant Park this morning. At the very least, however, some form of Limited-Time Mode with an accompanying assortment of special cosmetic items are undoubtedly on the cards. Epic Games usually teases collaborations between Fortnite and other pop culture products through in-game teasers, like the portals at Mega Mall when the collaboration with Stranger Things was about to be revealed in early July.

With IT Chapter 2 releasing on September 6, it's possible that a LTM or event could take place of the current crossover for Gearbox's Borderlands 3, that turned part of the desert biome into Pandora. When the balloons are popped, laughter from Pennywise the Clown can be heard.

Here's what might be included in the rumored IT Chapter 2 crossover into Fortnite Battle Royale.

By themselves, these balloons might not mean much.

Check out the image below for a look at the red balloon that can be found in Paradise Palms.

It seems we'll just have to keep an eye on Battle Royale for further developments over the coming days.

Just like the Borderlands event that's now underway it would make sense that weapon wraps, cosmetics and a player skin will be available to either earn or purchase from the store. We think having Pennywise appearing in Fortnite would be a great way to introduce us to the Halloween season.

But we've had overpowered weapons and items in the past, and Epic doesn't usually remove them to fix them - they just remain in the game as-is until they're finally patched.
