What will be the next Fortnite crossover? There are already rumors that GI Joe is returning, The Flash was released months ago and is still available in the store while Tron has only been available in the store for a few days. Fortnite doesn’t seem to have any affinity with any particular brand, having crossovers with Marvel and DC characters, Nintendo, Disney and others. Who knows which of our favorites will be next?
