Fortnite and crossovers with popular media franchises go hand in hand, from films to television series. According to a well know Fortnite leaker, Neo and Trinity from the Matrix movies could be landing on the island very soon.

While its innovations on battle royale gameplay are what put Fortnite on the map, it’s the big-name crossovers that have helped secure its place as a gaming icon.

From an entire Marvel-themed season to the more recent Naruto and Dune skins, it seems that no property is safe from being given the Fortnite treatment.

Given the fourth Matrix movie – The Matrix Resurrections – is hitting theatres on December 18, 2021, it does seem to be the ideal time for the skins to arrive.

Unfortunately, the leaker didn’t go into specifics about any Back Bling or Gliders that may accompany the two Matrix skins.

This would mark the second time Keanu Reeves has appeared in Fortnite after the official John Wick skin was introduced back in Season 9 of Chapter 1. Although, the Reaper skin from Battle Pass Season 3 was based on the action hero.

Of course, Epic have yet to confirm this leak, so for the time being take it with a pinch of salt.

But, if it turns out to be true, it would make for a stacked December alongside the release of Chapter 3 and the rumored Spider-Man skin.
