Neymar Jr is coming to Fortnite.
The rumor is swirling ahead of Fortnite’s latest season. Epic Games has kept Chapter 2 - Season 6 close to the vest as they usually do before each significant game update. With only three days left until launch, Epic has started dropping teasers and hints at what fans can expect. The trailer featured Fortnite’s proverbial mascot “Jonesy” dealing with the wake of the Zero Point of Season 5. It didn’t seem there was a whole lot to dissect, but Twitter did its job and revealed an exciting crossover in Chapter 2 - Season 6.
