Is Elon Musk Really Buying Fortnite?

Let's get the big topic out of the way - no, Elon Musk will not purchase Fortnite. So, where does the speculation stem from, or why did it all begin in the first place?

Elon Musk is a popular Twitter user, usually commenting on what the latest trend is on the platform. He has also made no secret of sharing his thoughts on gaming, with users constantly requesting his opinion on their favorite games.

Musk was eager to buy Twitter earlier in the year for reasons that were entirely clear to him. For the rest of us, it was a strange billionaire trying to stay in touch with the youth. It wasn't until the deal expired that the meme "Elon Musk buys everything," which naturally reached Fortnite.

What added even more fuel to the speculation was that Musk himself jokedly quoted a fake post stating that he purchased Fortnite in 2018, with users implying that it might have been foreshadowing his eventual acquisition - something that, of course, was simply people reaching for straws.
