June 30th, 2020, 19:26
It looks like Captain America is coming to Fortnite Season 3 for July 4 and via the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. At the moment of publishing, Epic Games hasn't announced or even hinted at anything involving the Marvel hero, however, a new datamining leak has seemingly spilled the beans for it. More specifically, dataminers have been digging through the battle royale game's latest update looking for anything interesting or noteworthy, and in the process, unearthed files that all but confirm the character is coming to the free-to-play game very soon.
The game's latest update doesn't contain any files specifically referencing Captain America, but an in-game asset of the Marvel hero's iconic shield has been discovered. Of course, it's possible this is all the game will be adding, but the safer bet is this is part of a larger cosmetic drop for the character featuring, most notably, a new skin.
Meanwhile, there are no complimentary files pointing towards a July 4 release date, but given the leak's proximity to the American holiday, many have gone ahead and connected the dots. And it makes sense. If you were going to release a Captain America (https://comicbook.com/category/captain-america-/)skin, July 4 would be the day to do it.
