Rumors and alleged leaks of The Last of Us crossover in Fortnite were shot down by Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann himself.
On July 24th, Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR claimed that a crossover between The Last of Us and Fortnite would be coming to the battle royale in September 2022.
After the rumor went viral, Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann, who has worked on both The Last of Us games, took to Twitter to personally dispel the rumors.

On July 24, Druckmann tweeted that while he enjoyed Fortnite as much as the next person, the rumors of a crossover between the battle royale and The Last of Us simply weren’t true.
“Love me some Fortnite… but there are no plans for it,” Druckmann said in a quote-tweet from Shiina’s original post featuring the rumor, which has now been deleted. “False rumor.”
After the co-president shut down the rumors, Shiina posted her own TwitLonger, clarifying that they hadn’t tweeted about the rumor in a more “protective” way because they assumed confirmation from two different sources.
“All of this information caught me off guard and was the reason I tweeted about this collaboration the way I did, rather than calling it ‘protective’ rather than a rumor,” Shiina wrote.
“TL;DR: I was in high spirits, too many people approached me about a potential collaboration in a matter of days,” the leaker continued. “This led me to believe that this collaboration was all but confirmed, when obviously that wasn’t the case.”
Although fans of The Last of Us and Fortnite are pinning their hopes on potential Joel and Ellie skins, it doesn’t seem like there will be a collaboration between the two.
