According to the said post, Grande will be coming soon in the game along with a possible in-game concert, which it has already had a test launch done by the staff at Epic Games. According to Game Rant, the said concert will might be subject to change since it is still in development

Before this, EDM producer Marshmello also had a concert in Fortnite celebrating his appearance in the game as its new character skin that time.
As for Grande, her rumored appearance in the shooting game is not the first time the pop star appeared in a game.

This is not the first time the game had a visitor from DC Comics. Last April, Epic Games announced the crossover between Fortnite and Batman with the launch of "Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point." In lieu with the said release, the game also launched in-game items, including the Batman Zero character skin.
Also, according to the same post, Epic Games are rumored to be trying to get the anime series Naruto for the game as part of a rumored new content for a Battlepass for a possible upcoming Season 8. This might include an explosive kunai weapon.

According to subpost, the said entity will appear at the end of Season 7, and it might be involved in the storyline of the incoming Chapter 3, according to Express.
Speaking of the possible Chapter 3, another rumor that is in the subpost regarding it is a possible redesigning of the map in preparation, along with the revealing of the location of the game's mysterious organization, The Seven.
