As you probably know by now Fortnite has disappeared into Black hole. There is speculation that it will never come back but let’s be real. This is the most popular and possibly the most profitable game of all time. Would Epic Games really shut it down?
While Fortnite is still popular, the lustre has started to tarnish on the game. When the office managers 12 year old says he would rather watch Shroud play Apex you know that Fortnite is not flying as high as it once was. Maybe Epic should end the game on a high? but no that will not happen
What we are witnessing here is one “Epic” (pun intended) Fortnite promotion. Epic Games needs to get the world buzzing about Fortnite again and what better way to give the game a kick in the pants but to stop the players from playing their favourite game? Even if they are playing something else at the moment.
The biggest Twitch streamers like Tfue, Dr Lupo and Myth have been staring at a black hole for the last day or so but there has been some movement but over at Epic Games.
But of course as we write this THE GAME SERVERS HAVE COME UP!!! GO PLAY LADIES AND GENTLEMAN!!
Fortnite is still the biggest game on the planet and when the servers go down Fortnite Server Status knows all about it. The traffic to this site has gone through the roof and our own servers are approaching meltdown. Whether you are Ninja or just a casual player you can not log into Fortnite right now. Every player on earth is in a holding pattern and what has Epic Games given us to stare at? A black hole!
Epic took Fortnite offline on purpose this is all part of a strategy to build up the hype around the new season. The meteor that appeared at the beginning of season 10 started moving and eventually destroyed the entire map. This meteor event was hard to be a part of and if you couldn’t log in then you had a space invaders style game to keep you amused but you needed the konami code to do this. The Fortnite Server Status has been off the charts!
It seems the event culminated into a black hole and everything including the lobby and character screens where sucked up by the gravity of the imposing black hole. The black hole seemed to even reach outside of the game itself. The Fortnite Twitter account lost all it’s Tweets! The Epic Trello board seemed to disappear. This black hole was truly decimating ever aspect of the game.
Will season 11 bring us the long rumored new Fortnite map? The speculation is rife amongst the community. Twitter, Twitch.tv and Youtube are all a buzz with these rumors. Epic has truly done a epic “pardon the pun” marketing ploy with this latest season introduction. It is still unclear whether this is the end of season 10 proper as the speculation mounts.
Twitch Fortnite Streamers like Myth are holding black hole parties while waiting for something to happen and chat is going wild. Here he is wearing his tinfoil hat as chat throws speculation at him faster than anyone could possibly read.
Many fans of Fortnite feel there has been a line drawn in the sand and that Fortnite Chapter 2 has begun. This black hole event has really got all gamers talking. Not only are the fans of the game watching the whole but players who left are coming back and even people who have never played the game are starting to talk about this latest development.
Whatever is happening to the servers and the game. One thing we can all agree on is that this is one of the most daring things Epic games has done and is probably the most daring thing any popular game has ever done.
