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.
