Will the plates ever come back together?

The plates are in constant motion and in 100 million years scientists predict that a new super continent will form. “Amasia” will be formed by Europe and Asia coming together. The last previous super conitinents have been “Pangaea” and “Rodinia”.  It is still unclear if the continents will reform into a previous super conitinent.
