Are The Fortnite Servers Down? Latest Status Update

If you've arrived on this page you'll likely be wondering if the Fortnite servers are down, right now.

Keep reading, we'll bring you up to speed.

Are The Fortnite Servers Down?

The Fortnite update today is finally complete and after a few hiccups, the Fortnite servers are back up again.

The Fortnite servers should be up and running for the next two weeks. And unless there's any technical issue, the servers will be up and running until we hit downtime for the Fortnite 19.30 update.

Why Can't I Play Fortnite Right Now?

Let's assume that, you can't log in to play Fortnite and there is no update or server maintenance going on, it could be you have an isolated issue.

If possible we'd recommend first triple checking the official Epic Games online service website, as well as the official Fortnite Status Twitter account. Because it doesn't hurt to check, does it.

Assuming everything is fine on Epic's end, you may need to check your own internet settings with your provider.

If a new update has just launched and you're struggling to get back on to the game after the maintenance has finished, you may not have downloaded the update properly.

Try closing your game client completely and restarting it, or try restarting your console to initiate the download.

Are you seeing any specific error codes? If so, it's also worth googling those, as you may have a very specific issue that can be explained with a quick internet search (but not here, as there are so many different error codes).

Good luck, and we hope to see you dropping into the island once again, soon.
