Kudos to Epic Games, their developers, and their PR and Marketing departments for trolling Fortnite fans with new issues that are making news everywhere. So in case you don’t know what happened, the devs killed the game and sucked everything into a black hole. But we already know, first from common sense, and second from a leak from Apple that the game isn’t going away. So really, at this point, we’re just watching the company mess with its fans during what would normally be considered “downtime” as they prepare for the new launch. Aside from knowing that if you enter the Konami Code on the black hole you can play a version of Galaga, the company has been releasing a series of numbers into the void.
Throughout the day and into the night, a chime would once in a while emanate from the black hole, and a number would appear on the screen. For a while, there were only four numbers, but some extras were revealed overnight. And since dataminers just can’t help themselves, hackers have already found the rest of the sequence. The full list of numbers are: 11, 146, 15, 62, 87, 14, 106, 2, 150, 69, 146, 15, 36, 2, 176, 8, 160, 65. What do they mean? There are real-life cryptologists on social media who have spent all night trying to piece this puzzle together, and aside from a single fan theory, most have concluded they’re still trolling fans to keep them watching the void.
Whatever happens, it’s probably going to take place sometime today or tomorrow with the launch of whatever Chapter 2 of Fortnite will bring.
