The leak of a female Fortnites skin for female characters comes as the company has come under scrutiny for the portrayal of women in its game.
A company spokeswoman confirmed the leak but declined to say whether it was a mistake or not.
The skin was apparently made by a team member and the team has not responded to requests for comment.
In the past, companies have made skins for female-led games like Mortal Kombat X and Halo: Reach.
But these skins are often more popular among female gamers, and are also used in some male-dominated games, like the game World of Warcraft, according to data from the game developer Blizzard.
