Epic Games reportedly sent out a recent survey that may be gauging interest on potential collaborations.

According to known Fortnite leaker HYPEX on Twitter, Epic Games recently sent out a survey in which a number of pop culture characters were mentioned. Included in this survey were Power Rangers, Black Adam, Teenage Mutant Turtles, and more.

One of the more notable inclusions was Breaking Bad's Gustavo Fring, which gained attention after a fan-made concept began circulating online. At the time, it was unconfirmed whether Epic Games had concidered the possible Breaking Bad skin, but thanks to this survey it seems it's not out of the question.

According to HYPEX, these surveys could be used to assess interest in certain collaborations, putting the options to a vote. The more popular choices could then be considered as a possible future crossover. "Epic clearly sends these to prioritize some collabs over the others. Not saying they're already in the works but if a collab is voted more than others they'll surely consider it more," the leaker said on Twitter. "Or else they wouldn't bother..."

The Gustavo Fring Fortnite skin began as a fan-made concept a few months back that only recently gained the attention of the Fortnite community. The fantasy bundle included skins for Better Call Saul lead Saul Goodman, Los Pollos Hermanos Meal Back Bling, Gustavo Fring, and even Walter White and Jesse Pinkman skins. 

Given the concept's reception, it's no surprise that Epic could be considering it for real — and it wouldn't be the strangest Fortnite collaboration to happen.

For now, though, it seems Epic Games has made no real moves to solidify the possible collaboration. Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul fans will just have to wait and see what happens.
