Is the Travis Scott skin returning to Fortnite soon?

Unfortunately, there are no reliable sources confirming or even hinting at the Travis Scott skin returning to Fortnite anytime soon. But where did all these rumors stem from? What made the Fortnite community believe that the rapper’s skin will be available for purchase once more on the battle royale game?

Well, there are plenty of reasons why people think this was going to happen. One is that Travis Scott will release his fourth studio album later this year, meaning that he will be the talk of the town once more. Another reason is that the plague doctor skin is back in the Item Shop for a limited time.

  • Players believe that since Epic Games has decided to bring back the plague doctor, there’s a high chance they do that with Travis Scott’s skin in the Icon Series. To recap, Epic decided to remove both skins a little while after they were released.

  • The plague doctor skin was removed since it was released around the same time the COVID pandemic was stirring worldwide. As for Travis Scott in Fortnite, he was able to pull off a concert in the game. Unfortunately, tragedy struck at one of his concerts, and Epic silently decided to slowly remove any and all traces of the skin and other related cosmetics in the game.
  • Chances of the Travis Scott skin to return in Fortnite are very slim, considering the backlash the game received after what happened at one of the rapper’s concerts. However, most players waiting for Travis Scott to appear in the game are hoping that they will get another musical event since it was such a big hit. We’ll just have to wait for Epic to release any information about this in the coming months.

The rapper is releasing his fourth studio album called “Utopia” this year

Following his third studio album “Astroworld”, Travis Scott will be releasing a new album in early 2023. Although there is no exact release date yet, we can expect it to drop in the following months. According to some online forums, it’s gearing up to be one of the most anticipated releases this year.

“Utopia” has been teased back in early July 2020 when Travis Scott took to Instagram. There, he captioned one of his posts with the word and nothing more. Afterward, he continued teasing “Utopia” through his social media until he confirmed that he was working on a new album.

According to Scott, his album will have the sound of psychedelic rock. If you ask us, the name definitely fits the vibe he’s going for. Scott has also signed a deal with A24 to release a film based on “Utopia”.
