Kratos is one of the rarest Fortnite skins at the moment. The God of War protagonist was last seen on March 19, 2021, which was more than three years ago. However, it appears that Epic Games will bring him back to the Item Shop soon. While the release date of Kratos hasn’t been confirmed yet, we may have an idea of when he will return.

Besides the return of Kratos, it appears that Epic may also bring Rue back to the Item Shop. This controversial Fortnite skin hasn’t been out for nearly four years, which makes it one of the rarest skins of all time. If you’re not interested in either of these cosmetics, though, you may want to check out our guide on how to unlock free skins in Fortnite.

Kratos may return to Fortnite very soon

Before Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 even started, a couple of leakers shared that Kratos may return to the Item Shop. Many players started believing this leak when Epic Games updated Kratos’ bundle early in the season. The development team does this only for the skins that will return shortly, which is why Kratos’ return might be around the corner.

Interestingly, God of War (2018) will celebrate its sixth anniversary on April 20. Considering that the Fortnite version of Kratos is based on the protagonist from this game, this might be its release date. However, Epic hasn’t confirmed anything yet. Due to this, we’ll have to wait and see if the skin comes out on this date.

Several prominent Fortnite leakers believe this is the date of Kratos’ return. Not only is April 20 going to be the anniversary of the game, but it’s also Saturday. Epic has released many collaboration skins on Saturday in the past, and this one may follow suit.

Furthermore, the theme of the current Fortnite season is Greek Mythology, which is another strong connection to Kratos. While his Fortnite skin is based on newer games, the original character was based in Ancient Greece. Due to this, we are hoping that he gets another style, one that would reflect his early design.
