Despite the new addition, fans are unhappy about the fact that Epic games are going to add a new character which has no relevance to the story. The twitter flooded with fans’s discomfort about the addition.
When the news about the collaboration leaked, many fans were disappointed. Some even stated that “the game was really a sellout at this point.”

If the situation remains the same, we can arrive at a point that Epic Games has failed to harness the hype which they created. Most of the players are not pleased with Epic Games’s current decision. Most of the fans wanted the foundation to be the secret battle pass skin.
Despite of the protest coming from the Fortnite community, Fortnite is still not slowing down their efforts for collaborations. The recent in-game skin addition Aloy, from the Horizon Zero Dawn is a best example for the fortnite’s rapid collaborations.
