A potential crossover between Fortnite and GTA is fueling new speculations. Despite the high level of excitement for the upcoming GTA game, official details from Rockstar Games remain scarce.
Rumors have been circulating that development of GTA 6 is progressing well. However, Rockstar Games, the developer behind the blockbuster franchise, has yet to confirm these reports. The lack of official information has left fans clamouring for any tidbits they can find.
One reason for the renewed speculation is the known strong relationship between Epic Games, the company behind Fortnite, and Rockstar Games. This partnership was evident when GTA V was offered for free on the Epic Games Store, a move that was well-received by fans of both franchises.
Recently, Epic Games sent out a survey that has caused quite a stir. The survey queried players about various intellectual properties (IPs) they might like to see incorporated into Fortnite. Interestingly, the survey explicitly mentioned potential GTA characters like Trevor Phillips, Franklin Clinton, and Carl “CJ” Johnson. Although Epic Games has stated that these surveys are purely exploratory, there’s a history of some surveyed topics eventually becoming a reality.
In addition to GTA, the survey touched upon other big franchises like Fallout, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Pokémon. The extensive list suggests that even if Fortnite continues its run for decades, it may never exhaust the possibilities for crossovers.
It remains to be seen how the gaming community would react to a Fortnite-GTA crossover. While Fortnite has a track record of incorporating characters from various universes, including the likes of Bender from Futurama, it’s not clear if GTA fans would appreciate seeing their favourite characters in the battle royale setting.
As the world of gaming remains on the edge of their seats for any official announcements, the speculation surrounding a Fortnite and GTA crossover provides a tantalizing possibility. Whether or not this becomes a reality, it’s clear that the appetite for new developments in both franchises is immense.
For now, all eyes remain on Rockstar Games and Epic Games for any clues that could confirm or dispel these intriguing rumours.
