A thrilling collaboration might be brewing as data miners have recently discovered a hint of a potential partnership between the massively popular battle royale game Fortnite and critically acclaimed RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
In the latest Fortnite update, an intriguing new banner was added that features the face of Ciri, a beloved character from The Witcher series. This banner is linked to an encrypted set, which has sparked widespread speculation among the Fortnite community about a forthcoming Witcher crossover.
Famous Fortnite data miner ShiinaBR took to social media to share their discovery and opinion about the new update, stating, “Ciri from The Witcher 3 will most likely be in the Item Shop very soon!! A Player Icon with her face was added in today’s update, and the icon is part of an encrypted set.”
While adding an icon does not necessarily confirm a full-scale collaboration, it does hint towards a possible inclusion of Ciri as a playable character in Fortnite’s ever-expanding roster. Fortnite and The Witcher 3 have robust fandoms, so the move could offer gamers a compelling blend of two distinct gaming experiences.
