Fortnite is known for their collaborations with many major franchises, and some of their recent ones included Dragon Ball, Naruto, and even some maps based on Junji Ito’s stories. Attack on Titan is based on a manga series by Hajime Isayama serialized in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine from 2009 to 2021. The manga ended in April of 2021 after 139 chapters, which were compiled into 34 volumes. The final, 34th volume came out in June 2021.
The manga received an anime adaptation by WIT Studio in 2013. Season 2 came in 2017, followed by season 3 which was split into two cours. The first one aired in Summer 2018, while the second one came in Spring 2019. Studio MAPPA took over the franchise for the 4th season, which was titled Attack on Titan Final Season. It started airing in December of 2020 and had a total of 16 episodes. Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 then aired in the Winter 2022 season.
After the final episode in March, the big final project was announced. It ended up getting split into two special episodes, the first of which aired this March. Crunchyroll licensed it as Attack on Titan Final Season THE FINAL CHAPTERS Special 1. The second part is coming this fall.
