****UPDATE**** Fortnite has officially confirmed that Ariana Grande WILL be the game's next virtual artist to perform as part of the Rift Tour event in August starting on August 6th at 6pm! You can see below for all the other info and get excited!!
It's been a while since the last time we had a virtual concert in Fortnite, but it looks like the game might be teasing it's biggest concert yet next week and it might be with Ariana Grande!
Earlier this week the developers of the game, Epic Games, announced the "Rift Tour," which will be its next in-game event that starts on August 6th and will involve a "musical journey into magical new realities where Fortnite and a record-breaking superstar collide."
Now here's where everyone is thinking Ariana Grande will be the next Fortnite artist because according to leaked court documents from Epic's trial with Apple, the developers were planning to have Ariana Grande AND Lady Gaga perform last year and that they already made assets for each superstar.
On top of all that, August 6th is Ariana Grande Day, which is the first day of the event. We'll just have to wait until August 2nd when Fortnite makes the announcement official!
