Also, the latest update also featured the Foundation outfit, which will arrive sometime next year. The Foundation is the popular wrestler turned actor Dwayne Johnson A.K.A. “The Rock.” No doubt, the game has attracted a lot of fresh players and the player count of the game is higher than ever.

But it looks like the devs are paying a toll, as the game is having matchmaking and login issues.
