Eurogamer reported the news for the first time, including a video on Twitter from the Epic Games account showing Neymar's number 10 jersey and football-like from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Neymar retweeted the video with the use of the eyes emoji, although this is not an exact confirmation, but another clue that something is about to be prepared.

Details of exactly how Neymar will appear in Fortnite are still scarce, but it may come around the same time as the Zero Crisis Finale single-player mission, which is the focus of the teaser video, is launched.

When it launches into the new season for the first time, Fortnite says, you play until the end of Agent Jones's mission in Zero Crisis Finale.

The purpose of the single player Zero Crisis Finale is to make it easier for players to enter the second chapter of Season 6 and reshape reality as we know it.

Neymar - the Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil player - has not played himself in football since his injury several months ago, but he is considered one of the most famous athletes on the planet, and even his occasional appearance may help spark interest in Fortnite.

Fortnite's live events proved hugely popular, with the 2019 concert hosted by American musician Marshmello attracting 10 million people, which was a record-breaking game for the game at the time.

Last year a performance by American rapper (Travis Scott) Travis Scott, also staged in Fortnite, attracted more than 12 million people.

In January, Epic Games pledged $ 20 million in esports to Fortnite in 2021.
