I am not sure if this “difficulty bomb” has happened yet, but Ethereum will likely switch from it’s proof-of-work consensus alogorithm to Casper, a proof-of-stake system that it’s developers are now completing. When this protocol change happens, the blockchain will hardfork- which means two networks will exist for a short period of time.
