A recent survey conducted by Epic Games shows the publisher gauging interest in a potential crossover with Resident Evil Village’s Lady Dimitrescu.
Epic Games recently conducted a Fortnite survey to gauge interest in a variety of different characters, products, and pop culture figures, including Resident Evil Village‘s Lady Dimitrescu. Over the last few years, Epic has used Fortnite to take the meaning of crossovers to new heights. This especially became apparent with last week’s launch of the Chapter 2 Season 6 cinematic, wherein characters such as Kratos, Master Chief, Ellen Ripley, and Street Fighter’s Ryu all shared the same screen.
Resident Evil Village villain Lady Dimitrescu hasn’t been around for as long as the other aforementioned characters, nor is she as widely known. That may change in the years to come, however, considering how quickly she became an overnight sensation based on a single trailer from Capcom earlier this year. The craze eventually prompted Capcom to share the Lady’s towering height (approximately 9’6″). Apparently, the Resident Evil publisher isn’t the only one to take note of the hype surrounding the horror franchise’s next big bad.

Twitter user Mike Dulaimi (via PCGamesN), who runs a Fortnite-centric account, has shared screenshots of a survey Epic Games sent to select Fortnite players. The survey essentially means to gauge user interest in a wide variety of topics. Of special interest are the gaming heroes and villains referenced in Epic’s survey, namely three Resident Evil characters – Ethan Winters, Jill Valentine, and the enigmatic Lady Dimitrescu. Brands such as Levi’s and North Face also appear on the list, along with musical artists like Beyoncé and DJ Khaled. This seems to suggest the company is at least considering the possibilities, though nothing is concrete as of yet.
Epic is no stranger to conducting these types of surveys with select users. Fans may recall the company’s inquiring about Lara Croft just last year. Interestingly enough, in celebration of Tomb Raider‘s 25th anniversary, players are now able to access a Lara Croft skin in Fortnite Season 6.
The publisher deployed Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 this month, sunsetting the chaos of Zero Crisis to make room for new shenanigans. Lara isn’t the only one to join the fun this season, either. DC Comics’ Raven entered the mix recently, alongside FIFA icon Neymar Jr.
