Rumors of Doctor Who x Fortnite Collaboration Debunked by Showrunner Russell T Davies

There have been rumors circulating about a possible collaboration between the popular BBC show “Doctor Who” and the widely-popular video game, Fortnite. However, Doctor Who’s showrunner, Russell T Davies, has recently debunked these rumors.

No Doctor Who x Fortnite Collaboration

In response to a comment on his Instagram account, Davies clarified that there is no Doctor Who x Fortnite collaboration in the works. He stated, “There isn’t one! It’s a complete myth, I’m afraid”.

Leaked Assets and U.N.I.T Tardis Alert

Despite Davies’ denial, dataminers had previously discovered leaked assets related to a potential Doctor Who x Fortnite event. One of these leaks included a newly-found event named “U.N.I.T Tardis Alert”. U.N.I.T refers to the Whoniverse’s fictional military organization called the Unified Intelligence Taskforce, whereas the Tardis is Doctor Who’s time machine.

Possible Reasons for Davies’ Denial

Davies’ public statement to refute the rumor raises questions about the status of a potential collaboration. It could mean that negotiations fell through, or perhaps the showrunner is keeping quiet to create excitement and surprise for fans.

Expected Release Date

Doctor Who is scheduled to return to our screens in May 2024, marking the beginning of Ncuti Gatwa’s era as the Fifteenth Doctor. If a Fortnite x Doctor Who collab is in the pipeline, we can expect it to be released around this time.

Official Comment from Epic Games

Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, have yet to officially comment on a collaboration with Doctor Who.

Availability of Fortnite

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, macOS, and Microsoft Windows.
