The wheels of the Fortnite Battle Bus never stop turning, as rumors suggest pop superstar Ariana Grande will soon join the battle royale phenomenon. An anonymous leak posted on the Fortnite subreddit suggests the singer behind hits like ‘Dangerous Woman’ will join the vast roster of characters in the coming weeks. Read on to see when the Ariana Grande Fortnite skin release date might be – and what the skin might entail.

When is the Fortnite Ariana Grande skin release date? 


Currently, we don’t have a release date for the Fortnite Ariana Grande skin, as it’s yet to be officially confirmed by Epic Games. However, current information suggests that if it’s real, it’ll be coming ‘soon.’

The Ariana Grande skin was leaked by an anonymous data dump, which was passed over to the mods of the Fortnite subreddit. They’ve released a post that breaks down the information they received from the leaker. Among this is confirmation of the Ariana Grande skin. They say it’s ‘coming soon,’ and it’ll release alongside an in-game concert. This isn’t the first time Fortnite has hosted music events, as artists like Travis Scott and Marshmello have featured in the game before.

Of course, it’s worth taking the news with a pinch of salt. Until Epic Games officially confirm the Ariana Grande Fortnite skin, it’s all subject to change. However, the mods at the Fortnite subreddit say they trust this leaker ‘100%.’ They’ve correctly predicted events like Fortnite Primal in the past, making them pretty reliable. However, it’s best to wait to see what Epic Games says about the skin. Usually, new Fortnite skins and events arrive pretty soon after their announcement. Therefore, if it’s real, it won’t be too long until we see Ariana Grande in Fortnite.

In other news, Ubisoft is announcing a new Tom Clancy game today – but don’t hold your breath for a Splinter Cell reveal. There’s bad news for GTA modders, as Take-Two are clamping down on fan-made versions of the popular franchise.
