Fortnite recently teased a new storyline that could come to the video game featuring the “Star Wars” hero The Mandalorian.

What happened?

The teaser was brief, but it had some punch to it. Fortnite released a six-second video that shows The Mandalorian opening up his communication device to see the character Fishstick.

  • The video’s caption read: “Got a job for you. More info coming soon.”

Context

Fortnite added The Mandalorian and Grogu (Baby Yoda) to its fifth season back in December, as I wrote about for the Deseret News. The two were asked to help Jonesy — who has become something of a main character in Fortnite — discover hidden locations for the Fortnite island’s energy source.

The recent season has been focused around bounty hunters seeking out rewards, according to ComicBook.com. The Predator and The Terminator are among characters who have showed up this season.

What does it mean?

It’s hard to tell at this point what the teaser means. But Fortnite has a history of teasing its big events through social media posts. Oftentimes the video game’s account will post videos or photos that are pieces to a metaphorical puzzle, which unveils what’s coming soon within the game. Fortnite fans will want to keep their eyes open for any potential teasers in the future.
