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


Fortnite Season 6 is here and fans are eager to play as much of the game as possible – but the servers will be down for a while.


That's due to the new in-season update that has just arrived - update 16.20.

This is something that usually happens every few weeks to update the state of the game, fix bugs and add new content.

Are The Fortnite Servers Down?

Fortnite's maintenance is scheduled for 4 AM ET (08:00 UTC) on the 13th April 2021.

When a new season update arrives, the Fortnite servers are usually down for 1-2 hours at most.

The downtime varies depending on the size of the update and how quickly the devs can perform the maintenance needed.

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.
