Fortnite is currently down while Epic applies the patch that rings in Chapter 2 Season 2. Here's how long it'll last.


Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is arriving imminently, with Epic's Battle Royale shooter going offline this morning.

With the Fortnite Twitter account posting "Get ready to be activated. The countdown to Chapter 2 - Season 2 has begun: Downtime scheduled to start at 4 AM ET (0900 UTC)", you may be wondering when you'll be able to drop onto the island again.

When Will Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Start?

Because the change to Season 2 will be a larger update than the usual weekly tweaks Epic makes, Fortnite could be offline for a couple of hours.

With that in mind, check again at 10:30 am to see if you can get onto the game. We'll be offering updates across all aspects of the new season, so be sure to check back throughout the day!
