What many have been pointing out upon launch of Wick's Bounty is that Fortnite always had a bearded character wearing suit, which pretty much akin to Mr. Wick and players even refer him to as "John Wick" since the beginning.

Epic Games probably wanted their own version of Baba Yaga back then and designed the real John Wick to be more serious-looking than his cartoonish and less cool counterpart to help people differentiate between them.
