Fortnite x Star Wars 2022: Fortnite leak teases collaboration with Star Wars. In the last few days, a number of Fortnite Star Wars leaks and rumors have emerged that point to a much bigger crossover at either the end of this chapter or the next. We might see a Star Wars-themed Fortnite Season 2 in Chapter 3. Certainly a huge shift from current circumstances, and we might get a chance to see some otherworldly beings on the island.
It was long overdue that Epic Games and Star Wars collaborated, and it looks like Fortnite x Star Wars is no exception. The new partnership could be similar to the Chapter 3 Season 1 Spider-Man association, in which the developers add new themed POIs and other changes. Leading leakers have revealed a number of new Fortnite x Star Wars cosmetics, data files, weapons that are going to be added with the recent update to Fortnite 19.10.
Two more Star Wars cosmetics have been updated, I wonder why 🤓

Epic has modified two Star Wars cosmetics, according to well-known data miner ShiinaBR, indicating the impending collaboration. Two gliders, the “First Order Tie Fighter” and “Fighter Kite,” as well as harvesting equipment dubbed “Riot Control Baton,” have been altered by the creators.
ShiinaBR has also identified a new Mandalorian emote that has yet to be elevated. Not only that but there’s more. Multiple Lightsabers have been introduced back into the game with the 19.10 update, paving the way for the collaboration. Rather than dumping all of the content in one large update, developers usually add portions of content in advance and keep them valued. A leaker has revealed all of the Star Wars-related files that were re-added with the last update, confirming that Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 will be a Star Wars-themed season.
A lot of Star Wars Lightsaber files were re-added in #Fortnite v19.10.
Either Epic are planning on bringing the Lightsabers back to the game in the near future (possibly another collab) OR they are working on a new melee weapon and are basing it off the animations and abilities. pic.twitter.com/LYjUVnE24H

As a result, the Fortnite x Star Wars season is expected to begin on March 20, 2022. However, without an official statement from the developers, these are just that: assumptions. Because Fortnite deals with the complexity of space and time, a Star Wars collaboration makes perfect sense. In the next weeks, players may expect additional information regarding the impending collaboration.
