Fortnite's latest season is all about the wild effects of the time rifts that appeared in the game's map, from teleporting burgers to the second coming of the dinosaurs. However, according to Fortnite Battle Royale Leaks, the same source which recently uncovered Fortnite's new heavy sniper rifle, those time rifts are closing.
According to tweets from the Fortnite data miner, the time rifts in Fortnite's sky will start closing later this week, and will totally vanish on or before Tuesday, August 21. After exploring the game's files, Fortnite Battle Royale Leaks also shared some images of the rifts at different stages of their impending closure:
