Looks like a leak could hint at the start day of the new season of Fortnite Battle Royale and when downtime will finally end.

Yesterday (13th October) an event took place in Fortnite Battle Royale and it ended with everything being sucked into a Black Hole. To see the footage of the event taking place, click here. There is a livestream that you can see on all of Fortnite’s official social media which is streaming the hole.

We have seen some numbers appearing around the Black Hole which has been decrypted by Fortnite fans and it looks like the Visitor/Scientist is trying to communicate with us. The numbers correspond to the words of the Visitors transcript from the recordings we had to collect in the Out of Time Challenges.

The message reads, “I was not alone. Others were outside the loop. This was not calculated. The Nothing is now inevitable.”

We haven’t had any announcement by Epic Games and it looks like all of their social media has also been sucked into the Black Hole but when looking at the coding on the official Fortnite website, you can see that there is a time and date for the “End Time”.

The code initially showed that the End Time would last until Tuesday 15th October at 6am ET. It appears as though this code was updated to show that the End Time will now end on Thursday 17th October at 4am ET.

As previously mentioned, nothing has been confirmed by Epic Games as yet, but it is possible that the new season will start on Thursday as we could then get three teasers before the launch of the new chapter. We will of course keep you updated with any new announcements/teasers as soon as they are released.

I think we’re gonna need some teasers for this next chapter soon because pretty much everybody is already like “okay the black hole and social media blacking out was cool but can we actually have something new now regarding What and When”

I feel like them drawing this out longer than Tuesday is already kinda pushing it in terms of the communities patience

theres only so many hours in day you can spend playing video games.

Look a little closer to see how that is relevant, open your eyes.

Agreed that and the server meltdown during the event. I heard many people had troubles getting in and were not able to see. This blackhole is not building hype, it’s a blackhole with almost nothing else.

Maybe they want people to value the game more after they lose it for a while when\if it will come back. Or at least make them distracted from it and go out, and\or play something else for some time and don’t be so fixated on one game.

Me and my friend figured out that if you put the numbers into google maps, it takes you to an address in Portland, ME. The address is 11 second street. If you go into satellite mode, it’s somebody’s house. I don’t know if this confirms that fortnite is coming back or not?

They are pushing there luck on their massive waiting period. People will move on quick if they don’t resume and it’s not building hype due to a boring blackhole and the server problems during the event. They are not off to a good start for chapter 2 they needed a better wait plan than annoying people.

I agree, the wait is frustrating. And yeah people are pissed off and saying things like “I’m not ever playing Fortnite again”. But we all know that they will all be hopping right back on as soon as they’re able to. And from what I’ve seen, it seems like it’s definitely going to be worth the wait. I think we all did it to ourselves and got our hopes up reading leaks and theories saying that they were jumping straight into Chapter 2/Season 11 and then it didn’t happen that way. What does everyone expect, really? Epic are humans, just… Read more »

Technically, the game is not under downtime right now. It’s in a black hole state, sure, but downtime is different.
