Remember when that huge rift appeared in the sky of Fortnite Battle Royale? It heralded the arrival of Fortnite Season 5, but now it looks like the main rift in the sky of Fortnite is shrinking, and it could be entirely gone by next week.
Two days ago on August 12, FortniteBRLeaks on Twitter noted that the rift in the sky in Fortnite was shrinking. In the tweet seen just below, the leakers (who have been a steady source of information regarding leaked Fortnite Weekly Challenges), claim that the rift in the sky will be basically gone by Tuesday, August 21.

Epic is no stranger to using big in-game stunts in Fortnite to promote upcoming events for the game. Earlier this year, a giant meteor appeared in the sky to mark the beginning of Fortnite Season 4, and then the rift appeared in the sky to mark the beginning of Fortnite Season 5. Could this be another in-game event, to mark the upcoming Fortnite Season 6? We'll have to wait and see to find out for certain.
