Whenever there is a rumor that a character will become part of the Fortnite
gang, the chances of it happening are greater than the possibility that the
rumor is untrue. Fortnite is, after all, a virtual advertising space as much
as a gaming platform. So count on it to be very certain that
Darth Vader will be in the game soon.
An indication of this was given by Epic Games itself in a recent presentation of Unreal Engine 5, where a folder called "C3S3_VADER" was spotted on a computer. Admittedly, maps for the Doom and Family Guy franchises were spotted in the same scene, so some see it as a joke by the Epic team.

On the second monitor you can see some folders such as:
- Family Guy
- Chapter 3 - Season 3 Jones
- Chapter 3 - Season 3 - Vader
and some other files

However, two things support the opinion that this is not a joke. Fortnite
has already collaborated with the Star Wars franchise on several
occasions, including the film Rise of Skywalker and the series Mandalorian and
The Book of Boba Fett.
And when it comes to the series, it would make sense for Vader to appear in the current third season of Fortnite. Namely, the Disney series Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere on May 27, for which it has already been confirmed that actor Hayden Christiansen will reprise the role of the cult Vader. When we put it all together and add it up, there’s little chance Vader won’t end up at Fortnite.
