Lionel Messi is regarded as one of the most popular footballers of all times. He's known for his amazing footwork on the field.
Over the years, he's racked up a lot of accolades for himself. Despite that, he hasn't been featured in Fortnite yet. Although that can't be compared to all that he's achieved in his glorious football career, that could definitely be regarded as a feather in his cap.
That being said, will we be seeing a Messi skin in Fortnite?
Will Lionel Messi be a part of Fortnite?
It's really difficult to make a comment on this at this point of time. Given his popularity, I wouldn't be too surprised if Epic Games ever decides to make him a part of the Fortnite universe.
They've already included the likes of Neymar Jr., Marco Reus and Harry Kane, so it's hard for me to say that there won't be a Messi Fortnite skin.
Given his popularity, it'd be highly beneficial for Epic Games and Fortnite to collaborate with Messi, from a financial perspective. A lot of fans around the world would love to purchase his skin in game.
Moreover, if they include the style with his national jersey and another one with his club jersey, it'd be nothing short of spectacular.
However, I'd prefer if they didn't make Messi a part of the battle pass.
That's a mistake that Epic Games made with respect to the Neymar Jr. Fortnite skin. It'd be better if they didn't repeat the same mistake with the Messi Fortnite skin.
That being said, I'm really hoping to see a Messi Fortnite skin sometime soon. It's unlikely that the skin will be out in Fortnite Season 7, but nothing is stopping it from coming out in the subsequent seasons in the game.
