In recent days, there have been rumors about new characters and collaborations coming to Fortnite, the popular third-person shooter from Epic Games. This game is known for its crossovers with character skins from other successful franchises, such as Solid Snake and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now, there are rumors of new heroes from different worlds joining the game, thanks to a multi-million dollar agreement with Marvel’s parent company, Disney.
According to sources close to the matter, Epic Games is planning to accelerate collaborations in the upcoming months and that characters from the One Piece universe, Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man, He-Man and Skeletor, and figures from DC Comics such as Peacemaker and Robin might be on the way. Additionally, characters from the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and a collaboration with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth are also being considered.
The potential addition of Marvel characters to Fortnite is not surprising given a recent partnership between Epic and Disney for the creation of an “entertainment universe”. While no official confirmation has been made by Epic Games regarding these collaborations
