Are The Fortnite Servers Down? Status Update On PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X, PS5, Switch, Android And iOS

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is over half-way done and is seeing a lot of praise from the community as it takes on the hunter theme.

Bringing in collaborations left, right and centre (including Star Wars, The Walking Dead and Predator) there's something for everyone.

But, with such high popularity, comes issues with the servers going down due to high traffic.

Sometimes the servers going down is to implement a new update!

So are the Fortnite Servers down?

2nd February

The Fortnite servers are scheduled to go down at 9AM UTC for maintenance.

This is to implement update 15.30 to Fortnite.

The downtime should last for roughly 1 hour.

You can see the current server status here.

If 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 and restarting it, or try restarting your console to initiate the download.
