When will the God of War return to Fortnite?

Three long years have passed since Kratos, The God of War, last appeared in the Fortnite Item Shop. Players have clamored for a return, but Epic Games has been reluctant to unleash Kratos to the masses. However, considering the theme of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, many believe Kratos is coming back to Fortnite soon. Here is everything we know about when The God of War may return.

When is Kratos coming back to Fortnite?

For this information, we turn to reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX, who is usually correct about theories and leaks. On April 11, HYPEX theorized that Kratos could return to Fortnite for the sixth anniversary of God of War (2018). The game launched on April 20, 2018, giving players a look at an older version of Kratos with the same unadulterated aggression.

Roughly two years after the game launched, Epic Games collaborated with Sony to give Kratos an in-game Fortnite skin and other cosmetics. Sure enough, it was an instant hit, but Kratos has been absent from the Item Shop since March 19, 2021.

Although HYPEX's theory is unconfirmed, it's at least something to look toward as Epic Games continues rolling out Item Shops daily.

Why do people want Kratos back so badly?

Beyond being one of the most famous video game characters ever, Kratos's Fortnite Pickaxe has become a staple in players' loadouts. Many streamers and competitors, including NickEh30, have made Leviathan Axe their primary. It's safe to say that Fortnite fans are eager to get their hands on this Pickaxe again.

Otherwise, anything rare is desirable in the Fortnite scene. There's a reason players would love to unlock Renegade Raider, and Kratos falls under this category to a lesser extent. Ultimately, we must wait and see if Kratos returns in the Greek Mythology season.
