Are Star Wars, Family Guy and Doom crossovers coming?

It’s never quiet for long in the world of Fortnite, and this week’s big news comes courtesy of eagle-eyed gamers who tuned in to the Unreal Engine live stream earlier this week.

During the show there was a section devoted to the popular Battle Royale game and on the screen there were folders that could be identified as ‘Loss‘, ‘family guy‘ and, ‘Vader‘.

One thing we know about Epic is that if we’re not supposed to see something, they won’t let it be shown. It seems like this tease could be very intentional, as it points to three crossovers that have been talked about for years.

For as long as I can remember players have been asking for a Darth Vader skin and with rumors of a full season of Star Wars coming soon, now seems like the perfect time to build that tease. It’s also possible it has something to do with an event scheduled for early May.

Doomguy is both a classic gaming icon and a current superstar. The rebirth of the Doom franchise under Bethesda & ID Software means this upcoming Fortnite skin would be highly relevant and welcomed with open arms. He would join a long list of heroes in the game to make the jump including; Kratos, Master Chief, Eivor, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine and more!

Finally, we have the option of Family Guy skins, which is the weirdest tease of the three. Due to Family Guy’s animation style, it’s hard to imagine what their skins would look like in Fortnite.

However, where there is a will, there is a way. While Family Guy has certainly seen its most popular days go by, there’s no harm in seeing if a well-planned Fortnite crossover can’t help rejuvenate the show.
