What's with the black hole? Fortnite goes down for hours; angry users tweet
The Fortnite YouTube channel had a livestream of the event that shows the explosion which blew up the landscape in the game and dragged all of the players into a black hole.
More than 5.5 million people watched the event, titled "The End", on YouTube and Amazon's Twitch video-game platform.
The black hole is the only thing players can see right now, along with a big red exit button.
Servers were still down and since Epic has gone dark on social media, deleting more than 12,000 tweets on the Fortnite Twitter account, aside from the link to the stream of the black hole, CNET reported .
Earlier, multi-billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk retweeted a fake news article titled, "Elon Musk buys Fortnite and deletes it".

Musk then teased online gamers by retweeting the link, writing: "Had to be done ur welcome."
