The Mr. Beast Burger chain, founded by YouTuber Jimmy “Mr. Beast” Donaldson, is collaborating with Fortnite as a part of the FNCS.
Mr. Beast seems to be all over esports these past few weeks, appearing on the League of Legends world championship broadcast at the grand finals to say he’d “100%” be buying an LCS team, and now collaborating with Fortnite. The collaboration was seen at the FNCS event and leaked on Twitter ahead of time.
Mr. Beast Burger is the virtual restaurant chain created by Mr. Beast, in combination with Virtual Dining Concepts LLC. Virtual restaurants only accept online orders and deliver to their clients almost exclusively, this allows brands like Mr. Beast Burger to use existing kitchens and restaurants to produce its burger and deliver them, saving on overhead for dedicated physical locations.
Mr. Beast The collaboration was spotted ahead of an FNCS event hosted by Fortnite and posted on Twitter ahead of the event. It wasn’t long before the FNCS event launched and attendees saw for themselves the giant burger head with the name of the burger chain in its mouth.
It’s unclear if this is the only planned collaboration between the two, but given Mr. Beast’s penchant for going above and beyond the call of duty, that would be surprising. It might be as simple as an on-site advertising collaboration between the YouTuber’s food chain, as there’s been no official announcement about anything similar. However, if Mr. Beast and his food chain have convinced Epic Games to plant a huge burger head in the middle of the FNCS event, more advertising integrations for the Mr. Beast Burgers and Fortnite collaboration could likely be seen heading into 2023.
Fortnite’s current chapter is winding its way to a close with the finale event, Fracture, which will occur on December 3, 2022. The FNCS will look to a quieter season over the holidays before picking back up with a new suite of events in the new year.
