Various leakers have reported that it appears as though Epic and Sony are working together to bring Fortnite The Last of Us skins to the battle royale game. These skins could arrive around the September release of The Last of Us Part 1 remake.
In the most recent show of the XboxEra podcast, host ‘Shpeshal’ Nick Baker mentions a Fortnite and The Last of Us collaboration, “to coincide with either the game remake or the show.” While The Last of Us Part 1 remake will be released on PS5 in September (and later on PC), the event is currently scheduled to premiere in early 2023. According to the leaker, multiple sources have confirmed the upcoming release, and Joel and Ellie are most likely the two skins that will be added to the game.

Recently a source had contacted @Shpeshal_Nick in regards to Joel & Ellie coming to Fortnite in the near future as a way to potentially promote the launch of TLOU Remake on September 1st.

Fortnite, as usual, will provide an alternate variant for each outfit, so we’ve determined that The Last of Us 1 & 2 versions of each character may appear. Only Joel may have been included as Ellie was too young in the original game.
