Fortnite’s Icon Series brings prominent figures within popular culture in an epic crossover with the battle royale game. Musicians, sports personalities, online influencers, streamers, and content creators had their likenesses brought to Fortnite for players to purchase from the Item Shop.
Recently, controversial streamer and content creator IShowSpeed reacted to reports of his inclusion in Fortnite during a live stream, but is it happening? We detail if IShowSpeed is receiving a skin in Fortnite and when it will be available.
Does IShowSpeed Have A Skin In Fortnite?
The short answer is that there's no confirmed skin for IShowSpeed in Fortnite as of writing. The popular content creator recently uploaded a video (embedded below) to his second YouTube channel reacting to his leaked Fortnite cosmetic believed to be added to the battle royale game.
Videos have since circulated online, claiming that IShowSpeed will receive an in-game outfit as part of the next Fortnite Icon Series. This series usually focuses on prominent celebrities, online influencers, and content creators like Ninja, Ariana Grande, Loserfruit, and, most recently, SypherPK getting immortalized in Fortnite.
As for whether IShowSpeed will be the next content creator to join the Fortnite Icon Series looks to be nothing but a hoax at this point, as publisher Epic Games have not confirmed this. In addition, a Fortnite survey was leaked in August 2022, highlighting several in-game cosmetics that have yet to be available.
If IShowSpeed were to receive an in-game cosmetic, it would be likely that it could have been leaked back in August, or similarly, Epic Games would have prevented the leak from surfacing online. In this regard, it's simply unlikely that IShowSpeed will be added to the Fortnite Icon Series roster.

While we searched for the YouTube video that leaked the IShowSpeed Fortnite skin, the video is reportedly unlisted, and it appears that the YouTube channel doesn't seem to exist. This further adds to the improbability of the leaked skin even when IShowSpeed browsed through the YouTube channel, which has no content.
IShowSpeed went further to check the Item Shop to see if the leaked skin was present but was disappointed and confused. So despite the streamer and content creator being adamant that "this is real," this Fortnite leak is another ploy to generate online discussions and views.
For now, players can still get SypherPK's cosmetics which are part of the current Fortnite Icon Series, available from the Item Shop.
