Fortnite has mastered the art of unprecedented crossovers, and the latest buzz seems to be about a potential Patrick Bateman “American Psycho” collab.
There’s a lot of excitement and curiosity among players about the potential addition of Bateman to the diverse lineup of characters in the game. But is this a genuine rumor?
Let’s dive in and discuss the legitimacy of the latest Fortnite collaboration rumor and if you can expect this skin to arrive anytime soon.
Is Patrick Bateman Getting a Fortnite Skin?
No, Patrick Bateman is not coming to Fortnite.
While Fortnite is renowned for its collaborations, there is no indication of an “American Psycho” crossover being developed at this time.
A recent TikTok video that has gained over two million views has gone viral showcasing a Fortnite bundle titled “It’s Sigma Time,” including a Patrick Bateman skin. This has led fans to believe a collaboration is on the way.
It is important to make it clear that the graphics seen in the clip are not genuine but rather fan-made.
The mentioned clip features a fan edit that originally surfaced on the Fortnite Reddit in June 2022, created by a user known as Fortnuter26.
Although this image gives the impression of an authentic Patrick Bateman skin, it is, in fact, a piece of concept art rather than an official Fortnite character.
However, while Bateman himself is not coming to Fortnite, one of his iconic dances is already in the game. The emote ‘Business Hips” seems to be based around the characters moves to Huey Lewis & The News’ “Hip to Be Square.”
This emote costs 500 V-Bucks, although has not appeared in the Item Shop since November 30, 2022. You can view the dance below:
