The Fortnite universe is about to add one more massive superstar to its roster as leakers have revealed that the Hollywood superstar Will Smith will be receiving his very own skin.

After recently receiving a new update, Fortnite leakers HYPEX and NotOfficer got to work on the new game files included in the update and unearthed some interesting skins.

Alongside the likes of a new Morty skin, the leakers discovered what appears to be Will Smith as his Bad Boys character, Mike Lowrey.

Fortnite Leaks Reveal Will Smith Skin

Following the release of v17.40 on August 17th, Fortnite leakers HYPEX and NotOfficer began working their way through the new in-game files and discovered various skins that are yet to be released.

Will Smith won’t be the only new skin coming to Fortnite, as the data miners discovered a new Morty skin, a ‘Janky’ skin, and a ‘Ninja Wolf’ skin. All of which can be found below, including Will Smith himself.

Although the Will Smith Skin in question appears to be from the classic 1995 action movie Bad Boys, it’s possible that the skin will have other variants. Possibly even an Agent J variant from Men In Black.

But for now, take all this information with a grain of salt as Epic Games can always change their plans for the skin. It was even recently revealed that the heavily rumored Peter Griffin skin was simply a troll to leakers by Epic.

So, although it looks likely that Will Smith will be joining the massive Battle Royale at some point down the line, it’s best to wait until it’s made official before you start saving up your V-Bucks.

When Is Will Smith Coming To Fortnite? Possible Skin Release Date

As mentioned previously, because the Will Smith skin hasn’t been made official just yet, there’s no knowing when it will release. However, as it was uncovered with the v17.40 update files, it’s possible that Epic plans to release it pretty soon.

Most data mined skins from the Fortnite game files often release within the coming weeks. Make sure to wait for an official announcement, but it looks like Will Smith could arrive in the Fortnite Item Shop pretty soon.
