Although leaks have surfaced, parent organizations like Epic Games, PlayStation, and Naught Dog are yet to divulge any information about the collaboration. However, the community is already ecstatic and has started speculating on different aspects of the crossover.
The Fortnite community is certainly joyous about the upcoming collaboration and players have already started debating and discussing possible cosmetics and other attributes. The first thing that almost everybody bought up was the Golf Club. Players are excited to wield the Driver pickaxe and take a swing at Joel.
While the majority are excited about the joint venture, there are some who are dubious. Building upon the superfluity of leaks in recent seasons, some players believe that this all sounds too good to be true.
However, one thing is for sure: the community now has a brand new collaboration in its hands to speculate and discuss. In the coming days, there will be a profusion of debate about the crossover.
