Neymar Jr. will be making history as the Paris Saint-Germain forward will be a vital part of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 – Season 6 Primal Battle Pass. According to Bleacher Report, the 29-year-old will be the first sports star in the game.
The Brazil international is an avid gamer in his free time and has been left a possible hint on Twitter about a potential partnership with the games creator, which is now in the works. The media outlet adds that Epic Games will reveal more details on Neymar’s inclusion in the game over the coming months.
Furthermore, the American video game and software developer and publisher spoke to ESPN over the ongoing talks they’ve had with Neymar. Both sides reached an agreement to partner for this new season.
“We wanted to make a splash, attract athletes with global appeal and build on the launch of really successful world football in January; it’s super-well-timed. The game is part of his life when he is not in football. We think this is an authentic way to bring him into the game, and we can’t wait for fans to see it.”
