Gamers have been coming across creepy red balloons in Fortnite of late. If you know anything about red balloons, especially if they appear near drains it usually means death by the hands of a killer clown.
What could this mean? Well it’s possible that Epic are preparing some sort of IT Chapter Two crossover to celebrate the release of the film, which is out today if my memory serves.
How do we know this is an IT ‘thing’ well, the red balloon in the drain is a kind of given, but it’s reported when players interact with the balloon a creepy laugh sounds, all signatures of the films creepy Pennywise clown.
Truth is no one knows. I could just be a nice little touch, or a tease for something more substantial. Either way, bravo Epic
