Answer:

If the current movement of the plates continues, geologist think that a massive single continent may again form some 250 million years from now.

Explanation:

All of the Earth's continents were merged 250 million years ago and since that time have been slowly moving apart. If this trend continues, they will likely reform into another major single continent in another 250 million years from now. However, this could all change if mantle convection currents, that drive plate movement, were to change. See pics.
