Leaks Tease Captain Jack Sparrow Fortnite Skin
Jack Sparrow’s inclusion in Fortnite would be far from the first time a franchise under the Disney umbrella has appeared within Fortnite.

Disney’s own first-party properties have even appeared within the game, adding The Nightmare Before Christmas‘ Jack Skellington.
While Epic Games has yet to officially comment on a Pirates of the Caribbean collaboration, Fortnite reportedly has plenty of other crossovers on the way. Fortnite recently debuted its highly-anticipated Metal Gear Solid crossover, introducing skins based on Solid Snake and Raiden. The debut of Chapter 5 also saw the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise join the game, with leaks suggesting main villain Shredder may be coming to Fortnite soon. Jack Sparrow’s rumored inclusion will join the massive roster of crossover skins within the beloved battle royale.
