Cary Developer Epic Games Shuts Down Fortnite

Fortnite Disappeared Into A Black Hole & Fans Have Been Staring Into The Void For Hours Fortnite was sucked into a black hole; what is next?
Marta Robbins | 15 October, 2019, 14:26

The online shooter game's creator, Epic Games, had been teasing "The End" - an in-game event to end the 10th season of the game. They zipped around for a while until they came to a suspended meteor, creating a giant portal that swallowed the meteor.

These players were then sucked into a rift and the screen was replaced with a black hole in the centre.

But anticipation is the purest joy, and while it might be hours yet before the game is back up, the Fortnite community is all in it together.

The game's Twitter account features a pinned tweet, streaming the same video of the black hole.

What are your thoughts on Fortnite's black hole event? So, it was initially assumed the game resumes when The Visitor's (or Kevin, the cube's) message was delivered, but sadly, it hasn't. It revealed a bunch of new skins too.


However, a series of random numbers started appearing around the black hole throughout the stream, assumably making some sort of code. Others were outside the Loop. This was not calculated. To be honest, it's a little amusing how much people miss the game.

As of right now, all you'll find in Fortnite is the black hole, which is live on Twitter and Twitch.

Available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android, the new update must be installed before you can play Chapter 2.

Also leaked was the Chapter 2 - Season 11 trailer, which confirmed features like boats, fishing and even carrying bodies of your fallen teammates, which is one of those things that makes ideal sense as soon as someone else has thought of it.

Looks like Apple has leaked a promotional image for Season 11 on the Italian Apple Store.


The most anticipated Fortnite event of all time is done and dusted, well at least for now. Epic Games turned this phenomenon on its head by deliberately shutting down "Fortnite", which the company said in March has more than 250 million registered users.

Earlier today, we reported that Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 is set to kick off tomorrow morning, aka Taco Tuesday. Those transitions have been marked by changes to the island's map, but speculation has been swirling that a more substantial update might be coming - and that it could include a new setting altogether.

On top of that, boats can be seen in the App Store leak above, which could mean an additional water-bound vehicle added to the game.

That's all we know so far about Fortnite Chapter 2!

Where were you the day Fortnite died?
