One of the most popular games in the world, the new chapter –Fortnite has gone down and it is believed that it will return with a rebooted version, featuring a new map.
It all happened in dramatic fashion. The YouTube channel of the game had a Livestream of the event that shows an explosion that blew up and the landscape, along with the players were dragged into a black hole. Since then, players haven’t been able to do anything but to stare at the black hole.
Over 5.5 million people watched the event, ‘The End’, on YouTube and Amazon’s Twitch video-game platform. Even at the time of filing this report, the black hole, as well as an ‘EXIT’ red button, is the only thing that is visible on the screen.
As per the reports, servers were still down since the Epic went dark on social media after deleting over 12,000 tweets on the Twitter account of Fortnite.
Earlier, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk hinted that he could be responsible for the blackout with a cryptic tweet.
Over weekend fans and game, enthusiasts were horrified to see the game turned into nothing but just a black hole.
Musk tweeted a fake news article from 2018 that claimed that he had brought and deleted Fortnite, ‘to save kids from eternal virginity.’ He had captioned the tweet saying, “Had to be done ur welcome.’
Later, he had tweeted again simply writing, ‘Haha.’
