What prompted this deluge of hate-filled responses? Well, many fans thought that an announcement of DLC seventeen years after the game was first released would be a cause for celebration. Little did they know that the content in question was for a completely different game.

As can be seen on the Steam page, the upcoming DLC for Funko Fusion is due for release on 13 September and with the corresponding trailer, the comments from fans are negative to say the very least. To put this into context, one fan on Social Media site X had this to say – ‘are you f**king kidding me‘.

Whilst the majority of comments were of complete outrage that the DLC was for a completely different game, there were some fans who thought that it was some kind of prank. Well, unfortunately not, this is actually happening and despite the prospect of an update for the game itself, there actually is none to be had.

Team Fortress 2 is one of the most popular games to be developed by Valve and to see that the planned DLC is for another game completely is a slap in the face to those loyal players who have stuck by the game over the years, despite the ongoing issues with cheats and bots.

It’s clear that player numbers have taken a steep decline over the years and many fans have criticized Valve, stating that they have abandoned the title and moved on. This has led to furious comments on Social Media and understandable frustration from fans.

Much of the criticism is directed at the players utilizing aimbots in the game and that there isn’t being anything done to combat this. Despite players posting videos of cheaters and bots on Social Media, little has been done about this.

So in a sense, Team Fortress 2 is back but seen by many fans as the worst way possible. Sure there is the old phrase that ‘all good things come to those who wait‘ but having waited this long, to have the DLC released for another game is perhaps a massive kick in the teeth to those loyal fans.

What do you think about the latest news for Team Fortress 2? Do you agree with the fan comments and the outrage that they are feeling or do you think that this may be a positive move? Get in touch, leave us a comment and let us know your thoughts.
