Is Fortnite x Skylanders collaboration on the cards?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is off to a wonderful start. The community is taking the mechanics pretty well. The UFOs and the alien theme is doing a good job too.

The Rick and Morty collaboration was a major collaboration that we saw in the game at the very beginning of the season. However, there is a small piece of evidence that may be pointing towards another upcoming collaboration.

Will we see a potential Skylanders collaboration in Fortnite?

Now, I'm not really sure if this collaboration will actually happen or now. But then again, these canisters in which the alien artifacts are located are straight out of Skylanders.

Skylander crystals came in similar canisters, so it's highly likely that this collaboration may also occur sometime during Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

And now that the Rick and Morty collaboration has happened, any collaboration seems possible at this point of time. That being said, it wouldn't be the first time such a collaboration would be teased.

In the previous season, Epic Games teased the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration by placing a canister from the game near dinosaur eggs. Although it took some time for the collaboration to happen, it finally took place.

I wouldn't be surprised it Epic Games took a similar route with Skylanders as well. That being said, Skylanders was a very popular game back when it released. And truth be told, it still has a very loyal fan base. If such a collaboration were to happen, Fortnite would be able to attract the Skylanders fan base for good measure.

Whether the collaboration would sit well or not, is a different issue altogether. But it would definitely give Fortnite more traction than it already has.

Let's just hope Epic Games takes it slowly with the collaborations during Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7. Personally, I was done with seeing collaborations in Season 5 itself.

And it's amazing that they toned it down in Season 6. I just hope they tone it down even further in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.
