‘Skins’ are a massive source of income for free-to-play games. Then why not bring-in skins of superstar athletes like LeBron James and Michael Jordan?
Sports-based games like FIFA and NBA2K are some of the biggest online games in the gaming industry across the globe. Similarly, free-fire and fighting games like Fortnite and Call of Duty have a separate and even bigger market than E-Sports.
Seeing a massive growth of the E-Sports industry during the pandemic, even the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games has included some games like Dota and e-Football. It paved the way for something big to be included in a globally famous international multi-sport event that is already a multi-billion-dollar industry.

LeBron James will feature in the skin for the Robin character in WB’s MultiVersus
The gaming industry has seen a transcendent boom throughout the world since the pandemic, but still, there is always room for more. The inclusion of star athletes like LeBron James and Cristiano Ronaldo as skins in different games can open up a whole new market for the company.
Maybe keeping that in mind MultiVersus, a free-to-play crossover fighting game developed by Player First Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will now feature LA Lakers Superstar LeBron James as the new skin for the character ‘Robin’.

Releasing skins for in-game purchases is the major source of income for most free-to-play games like Fortnite, COD, PUB-G and now in a few weeks hopefully, MultiVersus.
The game was due to be released in the upcoming week but has ended postponed. It will feature various characters in a multiverse within the Warner Bros. discovery catalogue, including those from Warner Bros., DC Comics, HBO, Turner Entertainment, and Cartoon Network. For those who do not know who Robin is, he’s a sidekick to arguably the best superhero in DC Universe, the Batman.
Now, a basketball fan can guess who would choose MultiVersus for the Batman skin in the near future. Michael Jeffrey Jordan. The greatest to ever set foot on the basketball court.
