Epic Games has often embraced the idea of introducing quirky character skins to Fortnite. A free-to-play title, Fortnite has managed to attract a huge player base owing to its fun mechanics, exciting cosmetics, events, and crossovers.

From Rick and Morty to Darth Vader, Epic Games has always managed to surprise fans with their enticing cross-overs. Considering Fortnite’s history, the widely popular Peter Griffin shouldn’t be an impossible occurrence in the game.

Most fans know Peter Griffin as the main protagonist of the widely popular adult-animated series, Family Guy. His wife, Lois Griffin, and his children, Stewie, Meg, and Chris Griffin also play important protagonist roles in the sitcom. In addition, Peter also houses an intelligent dog name, Brian.

In fact, Fortnite has a long-running unofficial connection with Family Guy, which started back in 2021. Epic Games had decided to troll Fortnite data miners by adding a gif related to the series in the game files. As expected, data miners fell into the trap and the company’s motive was later revealed by an informant.

Peter Griffin still has a chance in Fortnite: Top5Gaming

A popular Fortnite content creator and theorist of the name Top5Gaming still feels that the popular character from Family Guy may appear in the game in the future. In a tweet, he wrote about Peter Griffin’s chances in Fortnite alongside posting a thumbnail that featured Peter Griffin as a Fortnite skin.

Not only Peter, but the thumbnail also showcased a Petercopter Glider, Stewie Back bling, and more fun stuff. Many fans even thought that the thumbnail is an actual representation of the game.

Eagled-eyed fans had figured Darth Vader’s appearance in Chapter 3 Season 3 from a folder they spotted at the Fortnite’s Unreal Engine 5 presentation. As it happens, a fan had also spotted a folder named ‘Family Guy’. This gave rise to a lot of speculations about a possible Family Guy crossover in Season 3. However, we didn’t see that happen, yet.

Top5Gaming’s recent video also showcases footage of what a Peter Griffin skin may actually look like in Fortnite. However, it doesn’t look like the famous series is going to come to Fortnite anytime soon.
