John Wick’s house appears in Fortnite

As in, the guy from the actual movie

Epic Games

It’s easy to forget that John Wick isn’t actually in Fortnite, given that everyone calls the bearded premium skin from season 3 “John Wick.” (It’s actually named The Reaper.) Today, Epic Games formalized the violently stylish movie connection through an island Easter egg.

The new season 9 update changed the Paradise Palms portion of the map, introducing a mansion that may look very similar to anyone who has watched John Wick.

Here’s John Wick’s house, for comparison’s sake:

The Fortnite mansion also has a chest in the basement, which is a callback to John Wick’s house stash, where he keeps weapons and large amounts of gold.

What makes this discovery particularly interesting is that data miners have found in-game files that seems to refer to a limited-time mode. Curiously, the name “Wick” is all over these files.

While there’s no confirmation or announcement yet, it’s worth remembering that John Wick 3: Parabellum is hitting theaters onMay 17, which aligns perfectly with this new Fortnite season. In the past, Fortnite has done film collaborations by introducing a limited-time mode to coincide with the release of Avengers: Endgame.
