Players have been anticipating some news from Epic Games regarding Pac-Man ever since their official Twitter hangle wished Pac-Man a happy birthday—for their 42nd. This led to leakers’ speculation about a possible collaboration, and finally, we have some news.
The Japanese Pac-Man website has provided fans with some information about the possible collaboration:
The collaboration between the online games “Fortnite and “Pac-Man” sold and distributed by Epic Games has been decided. Collaboration start date and time: June 2, 2022.
Fortnite x Pac-Man Collaboration Will Release on June 2
2nd June is also just the day before the new Chapter 3 Season 3 of Fornite drops, which is likely to clash—but maybe it’s all part of the plan. Epic Games is just as likely to roll out the new collaboration before the real update begins to give fans a teaser of what’s coming. As Epic has yet not reacted to the recent post from the Pac-Man website, this release date could be adjusted as well.
Additionally, according to a reliable leaker ShiinaBR, the collaboration is set to release on 2nd June. While this is the only lead available till now for the news, it isn’t too far-fetched to imagine Epic Games teaming up with Pac-Man to get some new skins for the players, and considering ShiinaBR’s track record, it does seem like a promising report.
What Will the Fortnite x Pac-Man Collaboration Contain?
Players should expect an Emoticon and Backpack with the Pac-Man motifs, but the finer details on what the new items will have are still a little obscure. They might be able to purchase items with a Pac-Man motif. More information from the Japanese PAC-MAN website has revealed that the eponymous character won’t be coming to Fortnite as a skin, but they will be based on the design of PAC-MAN.
The best course of action is of course to wait it out and see what new information is revealed on the official website, by keeping an eye on social media for further news on the collaboration. There is also the possibility of new leaks that shouldn’t be ruled out, considering that there are likely to be more encrypted PAK files yet to be decoded.
