Fortnite is reportedly set to introduce the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a future update as part of a new deal between Epic Games and Paramount Pictures.
Fortnite’s next major crossover may just be right around the corner. After a year full of long-awaited collaborations with successful IPs, there are no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Opening 2022 with a bang, Epic Games has reportedly signed a new agreement. This time a deal has been reached with Paramount Pictures, according to Shpeshal_Nick of The XboxEra podcast.
As part of this new deal, everyone’s favorite heroes in a half-shell appear to be next in line for a Fortnite pack.
“I have been told that apparently Paramount has signed a deal with Epic to bring properties to Fortnite,” Nick revealed on a Jan.8 broadcast.
While this opens the door for a number of massive collaborations, one IP address in particular leads the pack: “The main one I had heard of was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
Not much else is known beyond that. It is not known what time of the Turtles we might enter the game, nor when they might arrive. It might still take a while if the deal was just signed.
At this stage, there is also no indication of the magnitude of their impact. We could see a simple cosmetic pack in the store, or Turtle Power could be the main theme of an entire seasonal update. We’ll just have to wait and see what Epic has in store for us.
The TMNT topic begins at the 1:18:36 mark below.
The four turtle brothers are expected to be introduced to Fortnite. However, we have yet to hear of any additional characters who may be joining them. From Splinter and Shredder to Casey Jones and April O’Neil, there are a lot of good tweaks that make sense for the Battle Royale title.
In addition, the Paramount deal could also open the door to an assortment of equally popular personalities. Everything from Transformers to South Park could now be on the table, if the leaked information holds true.
