Peter Griffin, from the animated Fox present Household Man, was added to Fortnite not too long ago. However he wasn’t the identical rotund father followers recognized from the sequence. As an alternative, he was was an odd buff model of Peter Griffin. And now, sequence creator and Griffin voice actor Seth MacFarlane has seemingly revealed why the change was made.

Final month, Epic’s in style battle royale Fortnite ended its blockbuster OG season and started Chapter: Season 1. And as a part of this new season, Peter Griffin joined the sport as each a playable pores and skin and as an in-game boss that seems on the battlefield. However Peter in Fortnite seems quite a bit completely different than he does within the present. The in-game canonical purpose for that is that he went to Meowscles (a cat/human hybrid character inside Fortnite) and satisfied the feline to present him some expired slurp juice to immediately buff him up. Sure, this occurred. That is all actual. We reside in a bizarre world.

But, the precise purpose why the Household Man star is completely different has nothing to do with Meowscles or slurp juice. As an alternative, as revealed in a January 11 video interview with IGN, MacFarlane claimed that the change was as a result of Epic “didn’t have the price range to create his precise physique.”
I’m not fully certain if MacFarlane is joking. He doesn’t appear to be. But when that’s the case it appears odd that Epic Video games can’t afford to make an enormous Peter Griffin. It’s additionally potential that MacFarlane—who admits in the identical interview to not realizing what Fortnite is and having to ask somebody to elucidate it to him—didn’t totally get Epic’s clarification. Maybe the devs meant the sport’s efficiency price range or perhaps assets for skins within the replace have been restricted. I additionally need to think about that an correct Peter Griffin could be too massive a goal and never be balanced for the PvP modes in Fortnite.

Oh and by the top of this interview, MacFarlane interrupts himself when speaking about how Epic caught Peter’s head on one other physique and begins discussing a TV Information cowl that includes Oprah’s face on one other girl’s physique. It’s actually him doing a cutaway gag in actual life.
After doing that, and presumably noticing that no one else was laughing or knew what he was speaking about, he ends the dialog with a tragic: “Anyone keep in mind that?.” The entire second had massive “Please, clap” vibes.
Anyway, yeah, blame Epic’s lack of a price range (apparently) for Peter Griffin being a swole monster in Fortnite.
