The conclusion of the Season 10 live event resulted in a complete blackout across all of Fortnite’s social media channels.

Fortnite as we know it has ended and now fans will have to wait for Epic to unveil what they have up their sleeves for Season 11 or Chapter 2, depending on what the official name is.


The game is currently down for everyone so we’re left with a lot of speculation as to what’s next.

To quickly fuel those flames, Fortnite changed both their Twitter profile picture and header to black. Of course, the black hole is a reference to what the event ended up creating, but it’s a clear teaser to what’s coming next.

Fortnite has gone dark.

It’s hard to predict when Fortnite will be back online based on this development. Many people expected downtime for the new season to begin directly following the event but it doesn’t look like that was the case here.

Fortnite is down across the board for all players, which is an interesting move considering the popularity the game has, but it’s surely going to build hype even more for the inevitable return.

It remains to be seen whether the game will return rebranded as Chapter 2. A leaked image days before the event showed the App Store featuring ‘Fortnite Chapter 2’ which led many to believe that will be the next step the game takes.

Nothing is set in stone as of yet but based on what we’ve seen, there are many reasons to be excited about the upcoming season. A new map will mean everything will be on an equal playing field when it comes to finding out the best looting spots.

We’ll be sure to let you know when Fortnite is up and running again! What do you think about the new social media styles Fortnite is sporting? Let us know in the comments!
