When it comes to collaborations, no one does them like Epic Games! Since July, there have been speculations about an in-game Ariana Grande concert in Fortnite, similar to what Epic Games did with Marshmello and Travis Scott. However, there wasn’t much certainty to these speculations. That is, until now! Recently, an Ariana Grande skin was leaked as a part of the notorious Icon Series in Fortnite. Fortnite Icon Series, which has previously collaborated with well-known streamers, such as Ninja and Pokimane, and even A-LIST celebrities, such as LeBron James and Neymar Jr, is now set to release an Ariane Grande skin and, hopefully, an in-game concert as well.
This news comes directly from a notable Fortnite news account on Twitter, iFireMonkey. iFireMonkey, who has previously leaked a few Fortnite events and is responsible for the leak regarding the in-game Ariana Grande concert, leaked the official promotional images for the Fortnite Icon Series showcasing the Ariane Grande skin in his recent tweet. The description on one of the promotional images reads, “JOURNEY TO MAGICAL REALITIES WHERE FORTNITE AND ARIANA GRANDE COLLIDE”. Hence, it’s certain that an Ariana Grande skin is imminent.
Another well-known Fortnite news account on Twitter, HYPEX, posted a few screenshots from a leaked prototype trailer showcasing the Ariana Grande skin. HYPEX, who has been leaking in-game cosmetics and emotes since the game’s inception, has since deleted the leaked prototype trailer. “I deleted both of the trailers tweets because I saw that some people don’t wanna watch them this early (even tho they were already posted by other people).. I left the Ariana Grande image tho since it’s already all over the place,” they tweeted. Additionally, the Ariana Grande skin will also have variants, as confirmed by HYPEX.
iFireMonkey, on his YouTube channel, recently posted a video [CONTAINS SPOILERS] about the much-awaited Rift Tour live event that’s going to happen in Fortnite on 6th August and will be repeated across five showtimes for 3 days. In the video, he showcased the leaked prototype trailer with the Ariana Grande skin. It seems like the upcoming Rift Tour live event has something to do with Ariana Grande. Hence, we may be in for an unexpected in-game Ariana Grande concert soon!
