Epic Games is about to launch something big for Fortnite, as the official Fortnite Twitter account that has over 12 million followers has today changed its profile icon and banner picture, and even tweeted an obscure message hinting at a possible event of some sort.
Here’s a look at the changes made for Twitter so far:

It looks like the announcements for the day aren’t done, so we’ll continually be updating the post as more developments unfold. Chances are, this leads to something big which we’re hoping applies to not only Fortnite Battle Royale but for Fortnite’s Save the World mode too.
Update: Epic has reverted the changes made. Not sure if this is part of their marketing gimmick or that’s it for the tease. Could it be just for the Drift skin? If so, that’s a whole lotta hype for something minimal. Here’s to hoping there’s more to it.
