In 2018, Epic Games took the world by storm with its incredible Battle Royale aspect in Fortnite. Since Fortnite Battle Royale’s initial launch, it’s been a highly discussed topic within the Gaming and YouTube community. With many popular Gaming YouTubers posting daily content about the game, its revenue and player count quickly became astonishing. Due to the game’s success, whether it would become an addition to YouTube Rewind 2018 or not was an extremely hot topic. Whilst many players had been theorising that it’s left out, an official teaser may suggest the opposite.
With many startled by the game’s popularity, other personalities, besides from stars like Ninja and Ali-A, decided to join in on the action. Logan Paul, alongside his brother Jake Paul were just a couple of many to board the bandwagon.

Firstly, we can see the back door of the bus open. Soon after, someone appears to be getting ready to jump out of it. The bus, often referenced as the ‘Battle Bus’ in Fortnite Battle Royale, seems to look almost identical, with a few changes to the colour, amongst other features.
Whist nothing has been officially confirmed, this could very well be referring to a different aspect of YouTube Rewind 2018 instead. Although, many popular figures within the Fortnite community re-tweeted the announcement. One of which appears to be Ninja. Of course, Ninja is also a huge YouTube personality who could very well be doing it for that reason. However, on the other hand, Ninja is often referred to as the ‘face of Fortnite’, so it could also be indicating that Fortnite will feature in this year’s YouTube Rewind. What do you think, will the game make an appearance? It appears only time will tell.
In addition, this wouldn’t be the first time that a video game has appeared in YouTube Rewind. In 2016, several famous YouTubers witnessed the incredible popularity of Pokemon Go. Therefore, many were shown playing the game towards the beginning of the video.
YouTube Rewind 2018 is scheduled to release at 10am PST / 6pm UK TODAY!
