Crossovers in Fortnite are no surprise anymore. It doesn't matter from which franchise, Epic always seems to one-up themselves. But now some leaks surfaced that really came out of nowhere. Or did they? Will Peter Griffin be Fortnite's next star?
Family Guy X Fortnite Leaks
There have been hints about a possible crossover between the two franchises when dataminers stumbled upon a series of Family Guy pictures while mining for content about the Street Fighter update. These pictures showed the great Chicken Fight or Peter hurting his knee. Those were attached to a Back Bling file codenamed "fries". Many believe this is a hint to the "Ding, fries are done!" joke from Family Guy.
After this leak we didn't get any new information about this rumored crossover. Until now. These new leaks actually come from Epic Games themselves! They might possibly have leaked a coming Family Guy crossover in their Unreal Engine livestream.

This might not inherently mean that we will see a Peter Griffin Skin in Fortnite, but after all these collaborations we already saw betweeen Epic and other pop culture franchises we don't really question anything. We will see how everything will eventually turn out and how these leaks will manifest in Fortnite if this crossover actually comes to fruition.
