Will the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass be DC themed?

At this point, Fortnite is essentially one huge advertisement for other franchises.

Chapter 2 Season 4 was entirely Marvel themed, while Season 5 was all about collaborations, with popular IPs such as God of War, Halo, The Walking Dead, Street Fighter amongst others

Season 6 does look to be dialling things back a bit, but it will still have a strong emphasis on collabs, just more focused on a specific franchise.


Batman Will Be In Season 6

Batman will once again have a presence in Fortnite and will be a focal point of Season 6.

As far as we can tell it will only centre around Batman, and perhaps characters from within that universe, rather than DC as a whole.

Batman, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, The Joker, and Green Arrow are already part of the Fortnite universe, so it is possible we will see them play in a role in the upcoming season.

Season 6 will see Batman get sucked into the Zero Point and taken to the Fortnite universe, with his mission being trying to figure out how the Fortnite island and Zero Point work to get back home.

RETURNING: Batman is set to return to Fortnite in Season 6

Batman is no stranger to the game, with Batman, and Gotham City, making an appearance in Season X back in 2019.

This new collaboration will be mainly centred around a new Fortnite x Batman comic series that will be a 6 part mini-series first launching in April and concluding in July 2021.

Most of the story will be told there, with the comics explaining a lot about what is going on within the universe and game itself.

It is possible we will also see Batman, or other characters from the franchise, as Mythic bosses next season, as well as the return of Batman-themed weapons and items, such as the Batarang and Grapnel Gun.
