A data miner has discovered a strange texture in the Fortnite game files, which suggests a crossover between Fortnite and Family guy could be coming soon.
Crossover event rumours seem to pop up all the time, with Fall Guys, Five Nights at Freddy’s, and even WandaVision all beign talked about as the ‘next big crossover’ to come to the game. The game does however have a confirmed crossover with Street Fighter.
But attention has turned to another possible crossover. Right now this is nothing but speculation based on files hidden within Fortnite, but if these leaks are true, then we could be seeing the game heading to Quahog to visit Peter Griffin from Family Guy.
A data miner who goes by the name GMatrixGames discovered what appears to be a hidden texture for an unreleased back bling codenamed ‘FrenchFry’.
Usually with codenames for Fortnite assets, the first letter of the codename matches with the character who the skin is based on, but the dead giveaway was that it was found alongside a whole real of images from the show, the scene where Peter Griffin falls over and holds his knee, another where he is dancing, and the last is screenshots on the scene where he fights the Giant Chicken. Could these be possible emotes?
An interesting Idea on Epic Games part, and Family Guy are no stranger to the world of gaming, with their massively popular mobile game and a few console games in the past, they even had an online MMO before it was shut down just over a year after launch.
There’s always a chance that the Fortntie developers left this in the game files to mess with dataminers like GMatrix, it could even be a placeholder or an inside joke at the company. When it comes to leaks, we should always take them with a pinch of salt and wait for an official announcement before getting too excited.
