Fortnite has disabled the “Daily Items” section in the item shop, a change believed to have occurred as a result of recent events with Travis Scott.
Today’s Daily Section in the Item Shop featured six cosmetics, including an emote that uses Travis Scott’s music. The content of each shop is planned and planned months in advance, so today, 2 hours after the item shop was updated, Epic made changes to completely remove the daily section and thus the “Out West” emote.
While Epic Games has not commented on a reason for the removal, it is believed that it happened after the deaths and injuries at a Travis Scott concert over the weekend for which the American rapper is widely held responsible.
Fortnite has confirmed on its status Twitter account that the “Daily Items” section will be reactivated with the next item shop update. This marks the first time in Fortnite’s item shop history that the daily section has been disabled.
