After the cataclysmic The End event in Fortnite, the black hole has continued to churn out floating numbers overnight, but what does it all mean, exactly?
Players have donned their thinking hats and tried to work out what the numbers could represent, such as how many seasons long a new chapter of Fortnite would be or how many chests will be available in-game.
Fortnite leaker AAOBI appears to have a different answer: the numbers are a code you can use to decipher a message from The Visitor’s recordings.
Fortnite Black Hole Numbers – 11, 146, 15, 62
The decoded message reads: “I was not alone. Others are outside the loop this was not calculated. The Zero Point is now inevitable.”
Full Leaked Line : 11,146,15,62,87,14,106,2,150,69,146,15,36,2,176,8,160,65 MATCHED NUMBERS TO VISITOR AUDIO TRANSCRIPT: I WAS NOT ALONE. OTHERS ARE OUTSIDE THE LOOP THIS WAS NOT CALCULATED. THE ZERO POINT IS NOW INEVITABLE
Guess we will see if this is correct after the next one

Zero Point challenges were active throughout Season 10, so the reference to the anomaly at Loot Lake makes sense. The Visitor’s recordings reference the singularity and mention something called the Bridge and the Junction, which seems to suggest that The Seven have deliberately tried to form a connection with another Island and contain the Zero Point.
The “Others” could be the players, other The Seven members or perhaps another group entirely – it’s anyone’s guess at this point. You can check out The Visitor’s recording transcript here, thanks to Reddit.
Until we receive any official word from Epic Games, this is all speculation.
Downtime of this length is unprecedented, but it’s all very exciting to watch. There’s no word as to when Fortnite will be back online, but you can keep up with any changes here.
