Fortnite's massive Season 5 Battle Pass aka "zero points" featuring the main characters of the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian Din Djarin and his trusty Force-wielding companion Baby Yoda is a sure-fire hit amongst Star Wars fans and gamers alike and it isn't hard to understand how Epic Games would capitalize on the duo's growing popularity.
Now, the gaming giant took to their social media handles to tease what looks to be a potential Fortnite update featuring arguably the Star Wars franchise's most popular characters currently. The hit online battle royale game's Twitter handle posted a video that included an intriguing caption: "Got a job for you".
We're not quite sure what exactly it is they're teasing. Maybe a new skin? New sets of characters from the show, perhaps? Regardless of what it could be, one thing's for sure, it would be totally worth all the hype, and fans will eat it all up. Check it out here:

However, nothing has been confirmed yet but I'm guessing there's also the possibility of Epic Games setting up with a Star Wars event similar to the highly successful Marvel Galactus event from last December which generated a lot of streams on Twitch. At this point, all we can do is wait for further updates.
If anything, this only goes to prove that The Mandalorian has undeniably become a hot commodity in pop culture and even in the world of gaming. When you think about it, it's really quite astonishing because the show only made its debut in 2019 and no one ever expected it to be this huge of a hit.
Fortnite is playable for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch. Meanwhile, The Mandalorian Season 3 is slated for release in 2022.
