To this point, leaks have only revealed an Adidas logo as part of the files containing the Fortnite Patrick Mahomes information. The popular sports apparel brand is of course one of Mahomes' top sponsors.

It's possible the upcoming Fortnite drop could feature a version of Mahomes 'out of uniform' as the generic NFL outfits already exist in Fortnite. These NFL team skins can be customized to change the jersey number in the Fortnite locker and many fans have used the #15 as a way to play with a bootleg Mahomes outfit.
