The highly anticipated collaboration between Fortnite and Doctor Who has been put on hold indefinitely, according to renowned leaker iFireMonkey. Initially planned to coincide with Doctor Who’s sixtieth anniversary in November 2023, Epic Games has encountered delays in implementing the collaboration. The ongoing Fortnite x Lego collaboration for Chapter 4 Season 5 may be a contributing factor to the delay.
Despite the setback, there is still hope for the Doctor Who collaboration. According to iFireMonkey, the collaboration may see a release in the first quarter of 2024. However, the delay means that the collaboration will no longer align with the franchise’s milestone anniversary, necessitating significant changes.
Epic Games is reportedly reconceptualizing the entire collaboration, streamlining content and focusing on essential elements. The original plans, which included in-game assets and a Doctor Who Battle Pass, may be subject to change or even scrapped altogether. The collaboration may now feature Outfits, Back Blings, Pickaxes, Gliders, and potentially an Emote.
While there has been no official confirmation from Epic Games, Twitter user VinderTomat used the UK’s “Freedom of Information Act” to verify the involvement of the BBC, thus confirming that the collaboration is indeed in development. Fans can remain hopeful that the Fortnite x Doctor Who collaboration will come to fruition by early 2024.
