Fortnite leak hints at Family Guy and Darth Vader collabs
Potential crossovers revealed in the Unreal Epic Games showcase
Another Star Wars x Fortnite crossover has been rumored for some time, and may have been confirmed thanks to the State of Unreal broadcast on April 5, 2022. The leak also potentially reveals Family Guy and Doom collaborations.
Some very, very eagle-eyed fans noticed the information during Tuesday’s State of Unreal stream, in which Epic Games were only supposed to be showcasing the latest Unreal Engine version, Unreal Engine 5. However, while uploading the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 trailer on a PC in the broadcast, a long list of folders could be seen on the right hand side of the clip. While this at first appears to be illegible, some of the folder names can be read on closer inspection of the still.
Darth Vader and Indiana Jones Fortnite crossover leak
Two folders can be clearly seen to display the words VADER and JONES. Now, while “Jones” could be open to interpretation, it certainly wouldn’t be far-fetched to think that an Indiana Jones collab could be on its way, especially with the fifth film in production.
“Vader”, on the other hand, is slightly more obvious, and another Star Wars collaboration has been rumored for some time. While there have been a few Star Wars crossovers in Fortnite so far, including a Rise of Skywalker event, Boba Fett and Fennec Shand, and The Mandalorian, there is a glaring omission in the collection where classic characters are concerned. Where are Luke, Han, Leia, Vader, C-3P0 and Chewie? We’ve even seen Fennec’s Wookie companion Krrsantan added to the Fortnite skin back catalogue, so some of these seem a little overdue. Well, if this folder name can be linked to future Fortnite content, hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer.
And Donald Mustard hasn’t done much to still the buzz. While he might just be enjoying a few days off in France’s Capital city, any Tweet that the Epic Games Creative Officer posts is going to be taken as a Fortnite hint – and Mustard himself must know this by now. While his original “Ahh, Paris…” tweet started suggestions of baguette skins and Ladybug and Cat Noir crossovers, it was a later Tweet from his holiday that really kicked things off…
Fortnite Family Guy collaboration leak
Family Guy is another crossover that fans have been desperately asking for for some time, and now may be in the works. Further down from the JONES and VADER folders, another clearly reads FamilyGuy, and suggests that there may be some Family Guy crossover in the works. Whether this would be Skins, and Emote or an entire event remains to be seen, but some people are certainly hoping a Family Guy and Fortnite crossover is confirmed.
What else can be seen in the Epic Games leak?
Looking at the rest of the list, some titles are indecipherable, while others are quite obvious. And this is why this leak really has legs, because some of the other folders are confirmed or existing Fortnite skins, such as LeBron James, Master Chief and Loki. The other main name that stands out that we haven’t yet seen in Fortnite is DOOM, so fans are now also anticipating a DOOM crossover as well.
And, while we know that says “Morty” and not “Marty” (alphabetically speaking), we’re still praying for that Back to the Future event…
