There already seem to be some hints of a possible collaboration between Transformers and Fortnite.
Currently, more and more leaks are surfacing on the internet that point to a possible crossover between Fortnite and Transformers. Even Epic Games seems to be not entirely averse to such a collaboration. As a result, Optimus Prime could appear in the Battle Royale.

The franchise based around the Transformers movies is celebrating its 15th anniversary. According to Shiina, Epic Games and Hasbro maintain a good relationship with each other. Moreover, it would not be the first time that a brand of the corporate giant has appeared in Fortnite.

Already last year there was a collaboration between G.I. Joe and the Battle Royale. Through this, the character Snake Eyes appeared in the game. Also a blue bus on the map, which is held by two cars, should give a hint to the collaboration. The two vehicles look like legs and could point to Optimus Prime, who plays a central role in the movies. Publisher Epic Games has also hinted at where things might be heading with the saying “It’s Prime Time” to go with the new weapon skin.
A new mech-like vehicle is being worked on codenamed “PlateHawk”.
Players should be able to enter its seats, fire, secondary fire, sprint, and emote from it.
