Filmmakers are Fortnite fans
The makers behind the Avengers movie Joe and Anthony Russo are huge Fortnite fans and players themselves:
"Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we'd take breaks to hop on and get in a few games, ”Joe exclusively told EW. “And then we started thinking, how cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers-Fortnite mashup? So we stalked Donald. "
Donald Mustard is the creative director of Epic Games, the publisher behind Fortnite was quickly convinced:
"Out of the blue, I get this call from Joe. And after a bit of geeking out over each other's work, we start brainstorming these crazy ideas, "Mustard recalled. “It was really important that whatever we did, it had to be super authentic to both Fortnite and the Avengers: Infinity War, and something that fans of both would be excited about. About an hour later, we had the bones of this awesome idea for a limited time gameplay mode, and almost immediately our team got started. "
Maybe we can look forward to further cooperation and new fun events in Battle Royale soon.
