The popular battle royale game took things to the next level after debuting an exclusive scene from upcoming movie, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in-game as part of the latest collaboration.
However, unlike many who tuned in to witness the in-game event, Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect was not impressed with what he saw, sending shots at the game’s developers.
Fortnite’s latest in-game event shared a short clip of the latest movie while also including an appearance from JJ Abrams before giving players the opportunity to even wield their choice of Lightsaber after the scene had finished.
Although the event had received overwhelming support and excitement from the fans, Dr Disrespect claimed that the event was lacking in creativity, taking shots at some of the game’s developers.
“I decided to watch this little Fortnite Star Wars collaboration that the entire industry had decided to hype up,” The Twitch star admitted, “from a creative standpoint, I thought it was seventh-grade bullsh*t, what a f**king joke!”

The popular streamer then took the time to address upcoming game developers, sending them a message of encouragement to out-do what Epic Games had pulled off with Fortnite’s latest collaboration,
“Young inspirational developers, whether you’re in high school, grade school, college, don’t you f**king dare look at Fortnite development and say that is the bar. That ain’t a creative bar it’s a technical bar.”
Dr Disrespect continued on, suggesting that game developers from other titles could put something together that could be even more creative than the Star Wars event, “They’ve got the technological advantage simply because they’re using some Unreal Engine but does that separate them creatively, talent-wise, from you? Not at all.”

One of the Doc’s fellow streamers, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, called out developers Battlestate Games in particular by tagging them in the post and replying with the “TARKOV,” hinting that they should take notes from Dr Disrespect’s video for the development of Escape from Tarkov.
With Epic Games continually looking to raise the bar when it comes to in-game events, it will be interesting to see over the next few months which game developers, if any, will look to take the Doc’s advice and try to best what Fortnite has put on so far.
