The news comes from the official IGN YouTube channel, where MacFarlane was presumably asked about his thoughts on Peter coming to the island. Here’s what he had to say:

Now Playing: Peter Griffin Seeks Fitness Advice In Fortnite From Meowscles

“It was great. I had to have somebody explain to me what the f**k Fortnite is. And then I said, well, that sounds kinda cool. Yeah, why not let’s do it.”

As the interview goes on, MacFarlane also addresses the reasoning behind Peter being so buff. According to MacFalane, Epic “didn’t have the budget to create his actual body.” To work around this, Epic decided to create the buff Peter that was introduced in Chapter 5 Season 1.

Peter Griffin is a playable character thanks to the Chapter 5 Season 1 battle pass, and he’s also a boss you can fight. After killing him, Peter will perform the “hurt knee” from Family Guy and drop some high-value gear. And fans are in love with the fact that they can play as Peter Griffin.
