The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may be added to Fortnite as playable characters.

XboxEra journalist Nick Baker reports in a recent podcast that Paramount has signed a deal with Epic Games to bring several franchises to Fortnite. “The biggest of the names I’ve heard coming to Fortnite are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That would be awesome.”

It is unclear exactly how this deal will work. After all, Nickelodeon owns the global rights to the Turtles franchise, but Nickelodeon’s series are on streaming service Paramount+. Both companies are owned by ViacomCBS.

According to Baker, there are more franchises outside of Turtles, but he does not mention other examples of names he has heard. He does note that Paramount has franchises such as South Park and Star Trek. However, he emphasizes that he has not heard that characters are coming to Fortnite.
