The Simpsons 'Predicted' The Fortnite Black Hole Event

The Simpsons 'Predicted' The Fortnite Black Hole Event

First of all it predicted the legalisation of cannabis, then it was Disney's FOX takeover, more recently people thought that it predicted Greta Thunberg's climate change campaign and now The Simpsons has done it again.

This time it's with the programme's prediction of the black hole event which people have claimed relates to Fortnite.


For those who didn't know (or have been aimlessly staring at a screen unknowingly) Fortnite's tenth season has come to a close and, as the world of gaming is preparing for the next chapter, the old map disappeared leaving behind a black hole.


Taking to Twitter, one person said: "Can we all just take a moment... The Simpsons even managed to predict the end of #fortnite Shook". You and me, fella, you and me.

Someone else added: "Fortnite predicted by The Simpsons. They get everything right I'm telling you".

Another wrote: "The Simpsons have done it again people. They are f**king legendary. #Fortnite".


When the black hole saga initially took place Twitter turned into a frenzy as gamers far and wide were mysteriously told 'This is the end'.

According to Engadget the event saw a missile launch into the sky and trigger loads of rifts, culminating in a meteor strike that appeared to wipe out the map.

Players then also started getting sucked in - though at the time, it wasn't clear what to - before a black hole began glowing in the distance. Just like on The Simpsons... coincidence? I think not.


Many people expect this bizarre event to serve as Epic's transition to Fortnite Chapter 2, with Engadget speculating it seems 'doubtful' that the original map will survive.

Writer Oscar Gonzalez said: "An explosive season-ending event caused the destruction of the island and apparently the game itself as it is not playable as of this writing. Fortnite has ended."

He explained that some players were able to play a secret 'minigame', adding: "Players who try to play the game are greeted with a technical difficulties screen and then nothing.


"However, one player did discover that Epic added a little secret. During screen showing the singularity, players can enter a Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start). A minigame similar to the classic Galaga will begin where players can shoot Durrr Burger heads for a high score."
