Microsoft and Bethesda will loan several characters to Fortnite going forward, including the Doom Slayer, according to reports.
One thing that is absolutely guaranteed in 2022 is more guest characters for Fortnite. The first season of Chapter 3 alone has already added Spider-Man, Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz from Gears Of War, and most recently Boba Fett, as unlockable skins.
If the latest rumors are to be believed, then one of these future characters will be the protagonist of Bethesda’s Doom games, the Doom Slayer.
This rumor comes from the last XboxEra Podcast (around 57:31), where Nick ‘Shpeshal’ Baker claims to have heard that Microsoft and Bethesda will be loaning several of their characters to the battle royale.
Baker chose not to share the full roster of characters, only mentioning the Doom Slayer. He adds that he has no idea when it will be added to Fortnite, so there is no guarantee that it will appear next season.
As Baker points out, some suspected characters didn’t arrive in Fortnite until months after their first rumor. For example, Naruto was speculated as early as May, but it wasn’t included until six months later, in November.
More Microsoft characters in Fortnite wouldn’t be too surprising, as it has previously loaned out the aforementioned characters from Gears Of War and the Master Chief from Halo.
The fact that Baker specifically mentions Bethesda, however, might suggest characters specifically from its franchises, such as The Elder Scrolls, Wolfenstein, and Fallout.
Insider Jeff Grubb also speculates that 2022 will see many more video game characters appear in Fortnite, as he believes Epic Games is running out of famous movie characters that he can put into the battle royale.
Fortnite is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
