Fans have been waiting anxiously to see what comes next following the Fortnite Season 10 The End event yesterday. But instead of the highly-anticipated launch of Fortnite Chapter 2, Epic Games has been live-streaming the black hole created as a result of the Season 10 event involving multiple rockets that apparently destroyed the Fortnite map.

Fans at first assumed that this was only a brief intermission that will pave the way for Season 11. But the downtime has continued since yesterday, and fans have been keeping their fingers crossed in hopes that it will end soon enough.

Epic Games also deleted every tweet on their official Fortnite Twitter account, although the posts on their Facebook and Instagram accounts were not affected.

Soon after the streaming of the black hole began yesterday, fans started reporting that mysterious numbers were popping up around the black hole. The numbers followed in the sequence listed below:

11 146 15 62 87 14 106 2 150 69 146 15 36 2 176 8 160 65

Since the game went into downtime and the numbers started popping up, fans have been proposing all sorts of fanciful theories to explain them.

Although some fans think that the numbers don’t mean anything and that Epic Games is only trolling fans as part of their promotion campaign ahead of the upcoming season, other creative fans have come up with several suggestions.

There are currently many theories about what the numbers mean.

Fortnite fan @Thooming pointed out that lining up the numbers with the audio from the mysterious Visitor tapes created a message: that is, if you take the 11th word, 146th word, 15th word, 62nd word… and so on, in that order, it spells out the message below:

“I was not alone, Others are outside the loop. This was not calculated. The zero point is now inevitable.”

The Visitor is the being that arrived with the meteor and launched the rocket that created the multiple rifts, which finally resulted in the black hole.

Others believe that the number 11 is a direct reference to Season 11 that comes after The End event that concluded Fortnite Season X.

Meanwhile, some data miners and Fortnite sleuths, including @Lucas7yoshi, claim to have mined evidence that The End event will continue until Tuesday.

But many fans have expressed doubt, saying they don’t believe that Fortnite would keep fans waiting that long.
