Fortnite is known for its crossovers, but Family Guy has been suspiciously absent from the battle royale shooter. You’ll find superheroes, video game characters, anime protagonists, and even celebrities wandering around the same battle royale match, but the long-running animated comedy franchise has yet to be seen. Now, many Fortnite fans are predicting that Peter Griffin is next to join the fray.

Rumors have been going around for months now that Family Guy’s dad bod icon is coming to Fortnite. The speculations started back in April when Epic Games held a livestream about Unreal Engine 5, the latest edition of the coveted game designing software.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed some strange folders on the screen during the livestream. One gamer even zoomed in to decipher the hard-to-read folder names. It turns out that the three folders said “Doom,” “Family Guy,” and VADER.”

Is Peter Griffin from Family Guy coming to Fortnite?

When the screenshots were revealed, many people believed it was a leak for Family Guy content coming to Chapter 3 Season 3. That has come and gone, as we are now in Chapter 4 Season 1.

But fans have not given hope just yet. While there is no solid proof that Peter Griffin is coming to Fortnite, it should be noted that Darth Vader and Doom Slayer were both added to Fortnite since the livestream. This proves that the folders may have been related to the content coming to Fortnite after all.

So far, however, Epic Games has not confirmed that anything Family Guy-related is coming to Fortnite.

What other cartoon characters are in Fortnite?

Rick and Morty, Naruto, and Dragon Ball have all had skins and other cosmetics added to Epic Games’ colorful battle royale. Most of the crossovers in Fortnite, however, are from comic books, movies, and other video games. Still, it wouldn’t be unheard of to see Peter Griffin carrying a gun and taking down Doom Slayer at some point.
