This didn’t give us much information until more information was given to us through the Fortnite News screen in-game.
An image with the ‘Air Jordan’ logo and ‘Fortnite’ was posted shortly after the initial teaser tweet. The image shows the iconic silhouette of the legendary Micheal Jordan and the Fortnite title text.
The in-game ‘News’ panel has been updated in Fortnite with the following information about the event.
The above teaser image is included with the text ‘Game Recognize Game, Drop in tomorrow’. This means the crossover event will start on May 22nd, 2019. These events are coming in at fast intervals!
This will be the first event done in direct partnership with a sports apparel brand and a sports superstar. While Fortnite has done sports themed event before, they’ve all been associated with leagues like the NFL.
As Air Jordans are branded and produced in collaboration with Nike, the event’s creation and funding will be brought in part by Nike. The event could include a new LTM (Fortnite already has a basketball ‘toy’), skins, emotes, and more.
Epic Games could be working the NBA as well to bring players this event, but those details are not yet released.
On another note, if you haven’t purchased the John Wick skin, you must do so quickly. The item will leave the store in the next Item Shop cycle. That’s in 9 hours as of 10:50AM EST. There are also a few exclusive Emotes for purchase.
We’ll update you with more information as it comes out about the new crossover event. Be sure to follow us at @FortniteINTEL on Twitter to ensure up-to-date information gets to you as soon as possible.
