Here’s a joke for you: what’s the difference between Fortnite and the Entity from Dead by Daylight? One’s a gigantic, amorphous creature reaching out beyond time and space and devouring whatever it sees, and the other is the Entity from Dead by Daylight. Heyooooo. Joking aside, Fortnite and Dead by Daylight are both big games that are always getting bigger, thanks in no small part to crossover potential. It is within the realm of possibility, then, that the games would cross over with one another.

Is Dead by Daylight Crossing Over with Fortnite?

Rumors have begun circulating that the developers of Dead by Daylight, Behaviour Interactive, have been in talks with the developers of Fortnite, Epic Games, for a potential crossover.

The rumor was first raised by a Twitter user named iFireMonkey, who is a prominent leaker and rumor-hunter in the Fortnite community.

“Recently it’s been brought to my attention that the team at Behaviour (Creators of DBD) have been discussing propositions for a Fortnite x DBD Collab,” iFireMonkey said in their tweet.

“From what I’ve been told this proposition has been around since ~March of this year, and no new information has surfaced since then, which could mean that this idea might’ve been rejected. However, it’s interesting to see it being talked about between the DBD team.”

According to iFireMonkey, this crossover, if realized, would fairly modest affair. Dead by Daylight players would receive a charm in the image of Fortnite’s iconic llama pinata, while Fortnite players would receive a skin of Dead by Daylight Survivor Meg Thomas.

As this is still a rumor, it’s best to take it with a pinch of salt. That said, Epic did recently send out a survey with questions related to Dead by Daylight, which could hint at potential collaboration. Both Behaviour and Epic have also previously cut deals with Universal Pictures for crossover material, so they may have had contact around those points.
