Epic Games sent Fortnite fans into panic following the conclusion of its tenth season on Sunday. While many believed a teaser, trailer or something involving the new season would launch following the conclusion, players were instead left staring at a black hole.

As of Monday morning, the game still is still gone with an ominous-looking black hole taking its place.

During the season’s conclusion, Fortnite streamed a live event titled “The End.” During which, the game’s entire universe was sucked into a black hole.

You can watch the world of Fortnite end in the video below.

The fact that the game still has not returned as left quite a few players on edge. Meanwhile, Fortnite erased its Twitch account, updated its Instagram with (of course) black hole pictures and deleted every tweet with the exception of the one, which just so happens to be a livestream of the game.

Some players have resorted to using their newfound free time to decipher a series of random numbers floating around the black hole image.

In order to help endure the endless hours of awaiting the games return, fans have turned to the one thing that consoles them most: memes.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
