Fortnite is everywhere. We mean everywhere! Just today it was announced that the latest title from Epic Games has officially become a billion dollar franchise, which makes it the perfect time to announce that the studio is collaborating with Funko for a brand new Funko Pop line coming soon!
From figures, to Pint Size Heroes, keychains, and tons more, there are big plans for this wildly popular battle royale game in its journey and Funkofication.
The CEO of Funko himself, Brian Mariotti, confirmed the good news and had this to say about the future project:
“We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with Epic Games to create the inaugural Fortnite product collection and to bring these characters to life for the first time. This collection will be a true celebration of Fortnite’s incredible popularity and cultural significance, and we believe our Funko Fortnite collectibles will strongly resonate with fans of the game. We look forward to expanding this collection and combining our leading product capabilities with our strong retail platform. Ultimately our goal is to create a powerful merchandise strategy for the Fortnite brand, as well as bring these amazing collectibles to fans around the world.”
The new line of Victory Royale goodness is expected to arrive just in time for this year’s Holiday season. Both major retailers and online stores will carry the new Fortnite collaboration, though word on exclusives has yet to be revealed.

As for the game itself, Fortnite is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and iOS. The game is also expected to make its way to Android devices, though Epic Games has not given us an official release date at this time other than “soon.” Hopefully we’ll learn more about that in the near future.
