Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 is fast approaching and fans are anticipating a Breaking Bad collaboration in the metaverse. While this sounds like absolute malarkey for the most part, there's some proof behind the crazy theories and excessive hype.

While nothing may come of it in the end, the odds of something happening are stronger than ever before. However, to understand the matter at hand, readers will have to take a trip back in time. With that said, here's why the Breaking Bad collaboration may likely take place in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1.

Walter White and Jesse Pinkman may soon be Breaking Bad in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1

"Gustavo Fring (Breaking Bad)" is actually mentioned in Fortnite's latest Survey 😭Along with: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangersn What If..?, Pirates of the Caribbean, Black Adam, Khaby Lame, Charli D’Amelio, Miles Morales, Fe4rless, Dead by Daylight & more..

Towards the latter half of August 2022, a survey was leaked, and in it, Gustavo Fring's name stood tall among dozens of others. Any Breaking Bad fan worth their salt would understand just how huge this is.

Having the owner of Los Pollos Hermanos featured in the survey could mean only one thing - Epic Games is considering the possibility of adding him in-game. Within hours of the leak being shared on social media, the search term 'Gus Fring Fortnite Skin' began trending.

That said, most surveys are merely conducted to test the waters of how the community reacts to certain collaboration ideas. Given this fact, the community soon deboarded the hype-train and got on with their lives, but not for long.

New #Fortnite survey includes: • Cartoon characters (Spongebob, Peter Griffin) • TV Characters (Jesse Pinkman, Han Soli)• Video Game characters (Luigi, Meta Knight) • Movies(LEGO, Justice League) • Clothing (Metal Umbrella, Forever 21)

Fast forward a few weeks, and in the second half of October 2022, Jesse Pinkman's name was featured in a new survey. Once again, the community rallied and the hype-train was fired up and ready to go. This time around, the search term, ’Jesse Pinkman Fortnite Skin’ began trending on social media.

Sadly, this euphoria, too, didn't last very long. With Epic Games confirming Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 and the "Fracture" live event mid-November, the entire focus pivoted towards this announcement. However, some users were still hopeful that some leaks would be found during the bi-monthly updates.

New #Fortnite survey includes: • TV Shows(The Boys, Invincible) • Comic Characters (Endeavor, Ironheart)• Video Game characters (Doom Slayer, New Monarchy) • Movies(The Hobbit, Inception) • Personalities (Daequan , Dream)

Keeping in mind that most major collaborations start off as surveys, it's good to have a lot of optimism. That said, just as it seems that having characters from the show would remain a pipeline dream, on November 19, 2022, another survey was leaked online; in this one, under the "TV Show" category, Breaking Bad was listed in fifth place.

Following this leak, search terms such as ’Jesse Pinkman Fortnite Skin’, 'Walter White Fortnite Skin', and 'Gustavo Fring Fortnite Skin' all began to trend once more on social media. Despite this not being a confirmation of a collaboration, with the franchise having been mentioned (indirectly/directly) thrice in surveys, it's more than just a coincidence.

When can players expect to see this collaboration come to fruition in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1?

Don’t fall to pieces…Jump into the one-time only Fracture event on December 3 at 4 PM ET for the Chapter 3…

With so much hype building behind the franchise, there's a strong possibility that Epic Games will want to capitalize on this trend and push for a collaboration as soon as possible. What better way to do it than at the start of Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1?

Given that the servers failed numerous times due to an influx of players when Chapter 3 launched, the sheer volume of new/returning players will ensure a successful collaboration. Even if marketing is kept to a minimum, leakers will ensure that information regarding the same will be spread far and wide.

With all that said, if a Breaking Bad collaboration occurs in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1, it will be sometime towards the end phase of the season. By then, newer players will have adjusted to things and will be ready to purchase their first cosmetic items in-game.
