As revealed by a reliable insider, the collaboration will bring two new skins to the table. The skins will represent The Last of Us’s main protagonists, Ellie and Joel. Also, the collaboration will most likely go live in September. However, the leaker didn’t give an exact date.

Here are some related tweets!

Following the leak, fans took to the comments section to express their opinion. As it happens, most aren’t happy with Epic Games choosing The Last of Us for a collaboration.

The fandom seems pretty divided regarding the speculated collaboration. Fortnite, being a free-to-play battle royale, heavily relies on in-game transactions for revenue. Such collaborations not only help Epic Games, but also the advertised franchise. However, apart from the fandom isn’t happy about the remake that The Last of Us Part 1 is getting.

The remake will not bring much to an old fan’s plate, as it will be entirely based on the PS4 version. It may only cater to those who haven’t played The Last of Us Part 1 on PS4 yet, and want to try the same on PS5. Add to the lack of new content, its price tag of $70, and the reason behind the disappointment becomes very clear.
