Travis Scott officially announced on Monday that he is going on a virtual tour via “Fortnite” beginning this Thursday, and that he will release a new single.
The artist has long been a fan of the “Fortnite” video game, sometimes even playing it on Twitch streams — which makes his collaboration with the Epic Games studio a natural fit. “Fortnite” is looking to stay relevant as it faces competition from several angles — Call of Duty recently launched a free Battle Royale game mode, while other games such as “Valorant” are garnering widespread interest.
