Twitch star Dr Disrespect has aimed yet another dig at Fortnite Battle Royale, giving an eccentric explanation of what he thinks Epic Games should do with the game in the future.
The Doc has always been a vocal critic of the popular Battle Royale game, often discussing his disdain for the game in his stream or on Twitter.
His most recent rant came on Monday, September 30, while playing rival battle royale game Apex Legends.
“They’re just pumping out stuff,” the Two-Time said. “You’ve got to be braindead to, like…”, he continued, unable to put his thoughts into a coherent sentence.
Ever the helpful streamer, though, the Doc did come up with some suggestions for what Epic Games should do going forward.
“I would put out the final season,” he started. “Make it the biggest, best season and make it final. And then disappear for about two years… Then come back with Fortnite 2. Think about that.”
A sequel wasn’t the only suggestion Dr Disrespect had, either. He also said that the first tournament of Fortnite 2 should feature a $1 billion prize pool, before directly addressing Epic, saying: that “if you need a PR guy – I’m not gonna be him.”
While the Doc may not have been serious when he came up with these ideas, it’s certainly something to think about. A $1 billion tournament may be out of budget, even by Epic Games’ standards, but arguably the world’s most popular game going on hiatus for two years would inevitably generate a lot of excitement if it was to re-release.
Maybe that lengthy break is what it would take for Dr Disrespect to finally enjoy Fortnite.
Fortnite Battle Royale was released in September 2017, and has enjoyed success many games could only dream of. Epic Games have made more money from the title than they would have ever envisioned, so one day Fortnite 2 may become a real possibility if business slows down.
However, we wouldn’t count on it. With the way the game operates, with a new season every three months and constant changes and updates coming out, it’s unlikely we’re ever going to see a sequel. Looking at other popular titles such as League of Legends, Dota 2 and CS:GO, if we do get a sequel, we will have to wait several years to see that come to fruition.
