“I have been instructed that apparently Paramount has signed a cope with Epic to deliver properties to Fortnite. The principle one which I had heard about was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles […] In the event that they’ve performed the cope with Fortnite, it clearly opens the door. So, for instance, we have got two Venoms, like, three Spider-Males […] We have already acquired [Master] Chief, so will we get Halo TV Chief?”
The deal is, in accordance with Baker, for a number of properties owned by Paramount, which — as you possibly can think about — features a truthful variety of well-known characters. Baker himself listed a few issues he’d like to see in Fortnite, like Star Trek, South Park, and, er, Peppa Pig. We’d additionally prefer to suggest Titanic and Frasier, please.
