After Fortnite players spotted a large Wreck-It Ralph image on the screen in Risky Reels, they anticipated some sort of collaboration was being teased, and it sounds like the fans were correct.
Wreck-It Ralph 2 just released on November 21, and like past collaboration with Disney and Avengers: Infinity War, Fortnite is teaming up in promotion of the new movie.
Ralph was first spotted in game on the screen in Risky Reels, making a cameo appearance for only mere seconds.
However, the official Wreck-It Ralph Twitter page has sparked more rumors of the collaboration, replying to a Fortnite tweet about a new emote in the game, which imitates Ralph’s dance.
Fortnite promoted the new “Hot Marat” emote with the tag line “Check yourself before you Wreck yourself” – with ‘wreck’ conspicuously capitalized.
To which the official Wreck-It Ralph Twitter responded “Hey @FortniteGame, Ralph is on the loose! Keep an eye on your servers.”

At first, this could have just been a meaningless interaction, poking fun at Fortnite’s servers being unstable, but fans believe it hints at a more serious collaboration coming.
Fortnite’s Twitter also replied, sparking even more speculation, writing “Thanks for the heads up – We’ll be sure not to get rekt.”

The collaboration with Avengers: Infinity War saw a new Limited Time Mode (LTM) mode added, where players could play as the movie’s villain, Thanos, by finding his Infinity Gauntlet on the map.
The possibilities are wide-ranging for a Wreck-It Ralph collaboration, from new skins and cosmetic items to another new LTM, fans are eagerly awaiting what is next.
