Fortnite Servers Are Still Down And There's Suggestions It Could Go On Until Tuesday
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 that could go on until Tuesday, if suggestions are anything to go by.
Naturally, Twitter spiralled into a frenzy with one person posting: "LOL if Fortnite is only showing this f***ing blackhole till Tuesday i think ill die I've been so bored and its only been 4 hours." Nothing like a bit of exaggeration.
RUMOR: @Lucas7yoshi claims that https://t.co/bnOUjFdm8l code hints at The End lasting until Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 6am ET.

With servers still down, Epic Games' social media feed isn't giving away any clue and neither is the Fortnite official Twitter account.
Another gamer wrote: "MFAO LEAKERS ARE SAYING FORTNITE WILL BE DOWN TILL TUESDAY 6 AM ARE YALL ON SOMETHING @EpicGames".
Someone else commented: "Okay im gonna go to bed, Fortnite will 99% come out on Tuesday, which sucks because that's when school's starting again. They at least could have let us known that this event was going to end on Tuesday. I just wasted 8 hours watching a black hole on a screen. #TheEnd".
With many in panic-mode, others reckon they've got it all figured out, with one person writing: "Nah, it's just a publicity stunt before the new season. Doing that won't do much considering they're probably going through the process of converting the servers to the season 11/chapter 2 patch."
According to Engadget, this recent 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.
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.
