Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted a cryptic video to his Instagram page, potentially hinting at a crossover in Fortnite Season 6.
Fortnite Season 6 is less than a week old, but fans are already wondering what surprises are in store for the latest Fortnite season.
In Season 5, Epic went all-in with their crossovers, bringing in characters from film, TV, and other video game franchises. It’s still too early to tell if Season 6 will follow the same path.
We might be past the bounty hunters of Season 5, but that doesn’t mean that the collaborations have ended. Fortnite fans saw a video that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted to his Instagram page that they think hints at a link between the entertainment legend and Fortnite’s new Foundation character.
The Rock posted a video on March 16, the same day that Season 6 released. In the video, he said that it was a “big day” for him and a certain community. “There’s connective tissue between that world and my world,” he told his followers.
“This is all done to strengthen and evolve and grow the power and the force known as ‘The Foundation,'” he said before giving his signature single-eyebrow lift to the camera.
As fans of Fortnite lore know, The Foundation was the character who was introduced during the Season 6 cinematic trailer. He is, undoubtedly, the leader or the founder of The Seven.
We don’t know whether to assume that this post means that The Rock is The Foundation character or if he’ll play another member of The Seven. The video is cryptic, so it’s hard to tell exactly what it means.
Data miners have, reportedly, also found a file with the name ‘DJ’ underneath The Foundation in the Season 6 game files. This could, of course, be a reference to Dwayne Johnson’s initials.
We still have no idea what this post could mean. It could be a coincidence, a red herring, or a legitimate teaser for a future crossover.
That’s all we know for sure, but we’ll keep you updated when we hear more teasers, speculation, or official word from Epic Games.

Fortnite Crew subscription could be getting some huge upgrades
Fortnite Crew subscribers could be in for some massive updates soon, including potential access to streaming services.
A new Epic Games survey reveals some possible upgrades for the Fortnite Crew subscription, including bundles with streaming services, Save the World rewards, and more.
The Fortnite Crew subscription was introduced at the beginning of Chapter 2 Season 5 and has been a relative hit ever since. Most regular Fortnite players find that the value of the Battle Pass, a skin, and 1,000 V-Bucks justifies the $11.99 price tag – at least once per season.
Epic aren’t ending things here, though. A recent survey sent to some Crew subscribers reveals future plans that Epic have for their new subscriptions service.
Fortnite Crew upgrades
The aforementioned survey included questions about previous Crew bundles along with an inquiry about additional features that players want to see. Among these options were Save the World rewards, extra cosmetics or currency, and bundles with streaming services.
The last option might be the most interesting of the bunch. Epic have already partnered with Disney+, giving players two months of the service for free with any Fortnite purchase. With this new idea, there could be a world where Fortnite Crew subscribers get a free Disney+, Hulu, or Netflix subscription with their Fortnite bundle.
We don’t know how likely this is to happen or when it could roll out, but the survey makes it clear that something of the sort is already on Epic’s radar and is, at least, possible.
It’s good to know that Epic are continuing to evolve the Crew pack as the year goes on. By the end of 2021, Crew subscribers could get content for other games, STW rewards, special offers, or access to a premium streaming service.
We’ll keep you posted if/when any of these changes are announced by Epic. Until then, follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.
Fortnite X Batman comic confirms Season 6 Deathstroke skin
The cover art for a new Fortnite X Batman comic reveals a new character coming to Fortnite Season 6: Deathstroke.
Fortnite Season 6 hasn’t done away with the crossovers. Rumors have it that Deathstroke will be the next DC character folded into the Fortnite universe.
Fortnite has transcended video games in a number of ways. You can already see characters playing Fortnite in film and TV, but now you can see the characters of the game in the comic book medium.
Epic Games have a longstanding partnership with DC Comics. We’ve had several DC characters enter Fortnite, but now we’re seeing the reverse happen – Fortnite characters are entering DC Comics.
DC and Epic have partnered on a new comic book series, bringing the two worlds together.
Not all of the comics have been released at the time of writing. Some of them have, though, and have already given us some information about what will come to Fortnite. For instance, one of the comics revealed new Batman skins and a Batcave POI hitting the island.
Now, the cover art for the fourth installment of the comic shows a character we’ve never seen in Fortnite before: Deathstroke. As data miner ShiinaBR previously leaked, this is almost certainly a future Fortnite X DC crossover skin.
We expect to see this character enter Fortnite during Season 6. Epic could even include a Deathstroke tournament, giving players the chance to earn the skin for free. They’ve already done this with several crossover skins in the past, including The Flash.
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about this potential crossover skin. For now, it seems far more likely than not that we’re going to see Deathstroke in Season 6.
Fans spot unreleased shotgun in Fortnite Season 6 teaser
Players have noticed a new, unreleased shotgun in the teaser images for Fortnite Season 6. Here’s what we know.
Eagle-eyed players noticed an unreleased “Black Drum” shotgun in the recent Fortnite Season 6 teaser.
Fortnite Season 6 is almost here, and fans are dissecting every piece of information that Epic give us. Already, players have pointed to the wolves that YouTuber Tabor Hill leaked before Season 5, a potential crossover with Footballer Neymar, and a whole lot more.
One of the recent revelations revolves around an unreleased weapon that was seen in one of the promotional images for Season 5. The Season 5 character, Reese, is holding a shotgun that we still haven’t seen in the game.
The same shotgun is visible in the first Season 6 teaser, which has led fans to speculate that it’s coming in the next Fortnite season. If we believe that wolves will be added as well, this could be another piece that Epic had ready for Season 6 and decided to hold.
Fortnite data miner, TweaBR, linked a few shots from the teaser to some past images. In his tweet, we see a stranded Jonesy, a symbol from the Chapter 2 Season 5 trailer, and a new shotgun that we haven’t seen in-game.
We can only assume that Epic will shake-up the meta with Season 6, as they’ve done with almost every other season in the recent past. The Shotgun meta is always changing, and a new weapon in this class wouldn’t be surprising in Season 6.
The community is relatively split on the shotgun situation in Fortnite. A lot of players still want the Pump to return, while others like the Tac, Charge, Lever-Action meta that we have in Season 5.
Of course, we’ll have you covered with all of the map changes, weapon changes, and everything else related to Season 6 when the patch goes live. Make sure to check back here and follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out.
