While we're used to Fortnite leaks spoiling the surprise ahead of time, they usually come toward the end of the season as we look toward what comes next. Now, Epic Games could be running to its panic stations as the entire 2024 roadmap has seemingly leaked. 

Even though Fortnite does a great job of telling its own unique stories with Zero Points, Agent Peely, and Midas, its real win comes from the many pop culture crossover. As we've recently seen with Avatar: The Last Airbender taking over the map, you can't get enough of your favourite IPs getting the Fortnite treatment.

Fortnite 2024 roadmap leak shows off a tonne of crossovers

The Twitterverse is currently awash with Fortnite leaks after a blurry image of the 2024 roadmap apparently leaked online. Showing off potential collabs for Fortnite Festival, LEGO Fortnite, the Battle Royale staple, and Rocket Racing, there's a lot to digest here. If even the smallest leak is true, we're in for one hell of a year.

Focusing on Battle Royale, Chapter 5 Season 3 might be apocalypse-themed, with a nod to Mad Max. As the Anya Taylor-Joy-led Furiosa is out in May, the timing would be right for this. What's interesting is a potential Pirates of the Caribbean crossover, which would fit with Fortnite's new Disney partnership but might feel a little out of place. 

Beyond that, there's Marvel's Doctor Doom to tease another Marvel crossover season, the return of some Chapter 2 seasons for another throwback, Fortnite Festival adding Billie Eilish and Metallica, and Klombo stomping into LEGO Fortnite alongside a LEGO Star Destroyer. If the leaks are to be believed, there will be a massive reset for Chapter 6 in December.

As with any leak of this size, there are obvious sceptics. While we can imagine most of the above happening, there are already players pulling this one apart. Even iFireMonkey notes that the Doctor Doom image seems to be pulled from a Marvel Comics cover. 

Some have noted that LEGO Klombo is pretty realistic, but as someone else pointed out, "I want this to be real, just for Billie Eilish. But AI has been getting scarily good at making fake images. And it could just be 4chan being 4chan." Someone else noticed the Klomba is strikingly similar to a fan render.

One supporter said, "4chan has been known to leak things like this before. They also leaked the chapter 3 season 3 battlepass page about a month before release. So this is most likely real." With a drop of new content expected soon, it'll soon be easy to prove or disprove these leaks, but if they are the real deal, Fortnite is heading toward a stacked 2024.
