Furthermore, there are possibilities to see the Transformers franchise enter the game as well. Imagine going around as the Autobots on the map and having the ability to change into a vehicle with mounted weaponry? Undoubtedly, that would be an amazing addition to thrill the gameplay.

This leaves no fewer chances for Mission Impossible and Halo TV series’ version of Master Chief to come into the game. While there is already a Master Chief from the game series, a little variety in skins would do no harm either.

Which skin would you go for if these were to arrive in Fortnite? Let us know in the comments below.
