Since then, the 29-year-old has been considered canon in the Fortnite universe, with his appearance spawning a range of merchandise and memes.
The Travis Scott skin is considered one of the most coveted in Fortnite, and rumors of a return have been doing the rounds for quite some time.

As speculation continues to mount online, the addition of the Astroworld image to the Fortnite files has undoubtedly piqued the online community's interest.
While the chances of Travis Scott taking on Galactus seem highly unlikely, it remains to be seen what exactly Epic has up its sleeves when it comes to the highly-anticipated battle against the Devourer of Worlds.Published 18 Nov 2020, 18:07 IST
