Gamer and Vlogger David “TheGrefg” Cánovas has dropped a teaser on Twitter which confirms that he will be the next free skin that players can unlock in the new Icon Series Fortnite tournament.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is filled with a variety of exciting content, such as crossovers with other franchises, new quests, Exotic Weapons, and fun weekly challenges. We are also expecting a brand new skin for the Fortnite Icon Series.
Icon Series skins are exclusive YouTuber and Twitch streamer skins that you can unlock ahead of their release by participating in the Fortnite Icon Series Tournament. Players were able to get the Lachlan skin through this competition in 2020.
Now, YouTuber and Twitch streamer David “TheGrefg” Cánovas has confirmed that he will be the next Icon Series Fortnite skin.
TheGrefg is the next Fortnite Icon Series skin
TheGrefg is a Gamer and Vlogger who is massively popular on both YouTube and Twitch. He has a huge following and is a dedicated fan of Fortnite, so he recently decided to share some big news with his many followers.
While the developers themselves haven’t stated anything official at this point, the streamer took to Twitter in order to create hype. He posted a teaser image along with the date on which we’ll see a brand new Fortnite Icon Series skin.
This Tweet roughly translates as “Official Presentation of my Fortnite Skin live.
Monday, January 11 at 20:00 (CEST)
I share you with great emotion, THE FIRST TEASER.”
The content creator is clearly eager about the upcoming reveal of the skin and wanted to share his excitement with his followers. He has over 660,000 concurrent views on Twitch, which is a record-breaking amount.
It’s understandable why Epic Games would pick him to be the focus of the new Fortnite Icon Series tournament. This isn’t the first time he’s mentioned this, as he teased some big news to his fans in a stream earlier this week.
YouTuber SinX6 clipped the section in which TheGrefg talked about his time in Fortnite. He made it clear that he’s going to stick with the Battle Royale game for a long time and then started talking about the skin.
“l will never leave Fortnite,” said the content creator “Especially now that my skin is ready to come out. By the way, there’s something real big coming out this week, so don’t worry.”
This fueled mass speculation among his fans that he might be the next free Fortnite Icon Series skin, and now Cánovas has confirmed that theory. This has come caused great excitement among his fanbase, consisting of more than 15 million subscribers on YouTube.
This competition is similar to the tournaments that were in Chapter 2, Season 4, such as the ones that let you unlock the Daredevil and Ghost Rider skins. While we haven’t heard any official confirmation from the devs, you will probably be able to participate in this event on any platform.
Be sure to take part in it if you want to unlock some exclusive free skins before they officially come out to the item shop. Only a few players manage to walk away with the exciting prize in these tournaments, so expect a real fight.
Epic Games also have a wide variety of other competitions planned for the rest of the year. We’ll be sure to keep you updated about any new Fortnite developments in 2021.

How to cancel your Fortnite Crew subscription
Canceling Fortnite’s subscription service is nice and simple. So if you want to know how to leave Fortnite Crew, follow this guide.

If you regularly purchase cosmetics from the Item Shop and each season’s Battle Pass, the Fortnite Crew is a great deal. However, it costs $11.99 USD a month, so for many, it won’t be worth it.
If you don’t feel like you’re getting your money’s worth or want to cancel for any other reason, then follow this simple guide.
How to leave Fortnite Crew
Usually, when trying to get a refund or leave a subscription service, you have to jump through several hoops to do it. Whether that’s navigating through five different pages on a website or giving them a reason, it feels like they’re trying to put you off doing it.

Epic Games tease new Fortnite Crew skin
Epic Games dropped a few tweets hinting at a new Crew skin for Drift, and then deleted these posts just a few hours later.
The official Fortnite Twitter account changed its avatar, and threw in a few cryptic teasers for the ‘Fox Clan’ before deleting these new posts just a few hours later. These tweets hinted at a new Crew skin for Drift.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is set to end on March 15, 2021, and it has brought a ton of exciting crossovers with franchises such as Predator, and Halo. Now, players are wondering what Epic Games will introduce in the next big update.
On January 24, the battle royale’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out a couple of teasers that let us know what might see in the future. These tweets were deleted after a few hours, but this has led to mass speculation among fans.
New Fortnite Drift Crew skins teased
Both tweets referenced a character named Drift, who was a character introduced in Fortnite Chapter 1, Season 5. The first post was the beginning of a scan, and it included the cryptic message: “Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?”
The second tweet consisted of an ominous warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” We haven’t seen the Fox Clan in Fortnite before, but this seems to tie in with the account’s new avatar.
Reliable Fortnite data miner HYPEX tweeted that the new teasers are related to a new Fortnite Crew skin for Drift, which seem to be a gender-bent version of the character. They then confirmed the skin will be part of the Fortnite Crew subscription in February.
If you have this monthly subscription model, you can get the Battle Pass along with 1,000 V-bucks when the new Season goes live. HYPEX confirmed that the new Drift skin will be part of an upcoming Crew Pack.
The official Fortnite account then posted a few more tweets and then backtracked by deleting all of the posts in which they teasing this new content. They even changed the account’s avatar back to its previous image.
Now, this could mean that the teasers were part of a grander scheme that Epic Games have yet to fully reveal, or maybe they deleted the teasers because they accidentally revealed these plans earlier than they had initially planned.
So far, we haven’t gotten any new information from Epic Games about what this is all building up to. HYPEX and other data miners have also not posted any additional information at the time of writing.
Drift’s original kitsune appearance and skins made him a fan-favorite during his time in the battle royale, so Epic Games releasing a new skin for him is certainly intriguing. Hopefully, these rumors will bear fruit, and we’ll get learn more about this soon.
