Fortnite Twitter livestream has players wondering if the game is over?

Is this truly 'The End' for Fortnite as everybody knows it? The livestream has left millions wondering.


Something strange is happening in Fortnite. For the past week, Epic has been teasing something involving "the end" for its battle royale game, but many dismissed it as a mere in-game event. But things are happening to the point that players are legitimately wondering if Fortnite has come to an end forever.

The Fortnite Twitter account is among the places that seem to be hinting that the Fortnite phenomenon as everybody knows it is all over. Following the simple tweet announcing "This is The End," all Fortnite playlists have been disabled. Nobody can log into the Fortnite game on any platform and the ongoing livestream across all of Fortnite's various platforms (Twitter, Twitch, YouTube, etc.) have players wondering if the end is truly here. Here is what today's events looked like from the perspective of some noteworthy Fortnite personalities:

As the stream unfolds, with millions watching, there's only a singularity that appears to be on display in the middle of nothingness. The battle royale island is gone. The planet appears to be gone. Whether these are truly the final moments for the game remains to be seen. However, there do appear to be white flashes every couple of minutes, which seem to be pointing to an upcoming big bang.

Shacknews will continue to monitor this story and will report on whatever comes of this stream.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
