Fortnite Season 10 Ends With a Bang!

End of Season 10 took battle royale sensation Fortnite down with a black hole event and goes totally offline.

Ever since its inception back in 2017, developer/publisher Epic Games has been successfully running seasons after new seasons of their free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite and Season 10 being their most recent one.

Following launch back in August 2019, tenth season of Fortnite Battle Royale quickly became its most-watched event ever. It has ended lately after disappearing into a black hole and causing total blackout by going completely offline.

Nearing end of Season 3, a mysterious alien known as the Visitor arrived on battle royale island of Fortnite in 2018. After causing a number of catastrophes over a year and so, a rocket was set on top of Dusty Depot by the Visitor.

That rocket has recently launched when current season was about to end and it exploded into a couple of pieces. A giant rift is created that sucked everything on the island into it including players before getting lost into nothingness.

Season X was the biggest ever event that Epic Games hosted for their popular multiplayer shooter. Players were hinted that something big was about to happen nearing end and then everything else were sucked into a black hole.

Fortnite is currently offline and its in-game lobby is a black screen same as their official Twitch and YouTube channels. Though there were no potential sign of the game getting shut down for good, some fans are panicking in sudden blackout.

Games are usually taken down for server maintenance and put back up after a few hours to let everyone back at playing. However, Fortnite purposefully went offline for a reason and millions of players are eagerly waiting to see what happens.

Millions of fans are still watching over streams on Mixer, Twitch and YouTube in anticipation of some sort of epic reveal. No one seems to know exactly what to expect from this and developers are just taking time to unveil their big secret.

Apparently, Fortnite: Chapter 2 was been leaked earlier via Italian iOS App Store that features a brand-new map. Rather than being a sequel to original free-to-play shooter, Epic Games may just reopen the game with new characters and gameplay.

If anything from these leaks is true then Fortnite is likely to head to a complete new direction, probably with a new story. Therefore, "Chapter 2 – Season 1" makes a lot of sense instead of Season 11 when it will be revealed on October 14.
