Donald Mustard; Worldwide Creative Director at Epic Games, hinted at a possible G.I. Joe – Fortnite collaboration during a Zoom call with the fans of the game.
Mr. Mustard has stated that certain objects in the background of his Zoom call will act as a tease on things to come.
“[The Zoom call] was SO fun and SO inspiring! Super cool to hang out with a bunch of awesome people who all LOVE the art of games! Trying to count how many clues to future stuff I’ve hidden into the background of my ‘wfh’ space…”
As noted by journalist Geoff Keighley, who conducted the interview, a boxed Classified Series Snake Eyes was on a desk by Donald Mustard’s couch.
Fortnite characters 8-Ball and Scratch are heavily influenced by Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow respectively. It is likely that new skins may be available for the characters.
It is also worth noting that collaborations are not new to this famous sandbox-styled, battle royale video game. An ongoing collaboration with Marvel has introduced a massive roster of characters from the comic book giant.
