Is a Young Sheldon Skin Coming to Fortnite?
There's no doubt that Young Sheldon has caught the attention of countless comedy lovers over the years, with some avid Fortnite players who would love to see their favorite worlds collaborate. Epic Games releases some of the best collaborations in the gaming industry, and a Young Sheldon x Fortnite crossover doesn't really seem all that strange.
Recently, rumors of such collaboration have been spreading all over X (Formerly Twitter) and TikTok, and there have been some mock-up designs of the skins. So, is a Young Sheldon skin actually coming to Fortnite? Here's everything you need to know!
Short Answer: No! Young Sheldon won't be coming to Fortnite anytime soon, as the leaks and rumors might suggest. The leaks were denied by a notable Fortnite leaker, iFireMoney, on X.
While you might think of Young Sheldon x Fortnite as a strange collaboration, it's not something unexpected. We've seen a lot of stranger collaborations, such as LeBron James, who has multiple skins in the game. Young Sheldon, as well as his older counterpart, don't exactly make a fun video game character. It's true that Young Sheldon is into plenty of nerdy things, but he probably won't be able to survive the chaos of a Battle Royale. It's a collaboration that is not going to happen in Fortnite. Epic Games has yet to address the rumors, let alone make an official announcement.
One of the reasons why Young Sheldon x Fortnite collab rumors spread like wildfire was because of Fortnite's Big Bang event in December. The name "Big Bang" got many players theorizing for a possible collaboration between the two franchises.
The rumors also stem from the fact that Young Sheldon has become something of a sensation, especially after the show took over Tiktok. There are hundreds of accounts uploading clips from the slow spliced with someone playing Minecraft.
While the collaboration might never happen, it's Fortnite we're talking about, the game that has collaborated with every major franchise under the sun. Each new season brings the possibility for Fortnite to roll out more partnerships and cosmetics; one of those days, we might see Young Sheldon dropping into the Battle Royale.
