Fortnite Servers Back Up After Extended Downtime

Radical Heights 6

An hour after this returning problem, Epic Games finally chose to take the servers down completely for emergency maintenance in order to "deploy major upgrades to [its] database systems". You can also monitor the server situation at status.epicgames.com, and of course there's a Reddit thread filled with helpful advice.

The end of Season 3 of Battle Pass is approaching and users are having issues completing the Week 8 challenges due to the server issues.

PUBG may have had a head start over Fortnite's battle royale mode, but with the latter game being free to play it has attracted a fast-growing fanbase.

Unless you've been up all night frantically refreshing Twitter to see if Fortnite is back up, you might have missed the news earlier that it has completely crashed. "Right now, we don't know how long it will take".

KitGuru Says: Has Fortnite's extended downtime today affected you at all? However, it quickly reported that login issues had returned and the database system is being upgraded. The developers first tweeted about the issues last night at 21:00 GMT, so they've have been ongoing for close to a full 24 hours.

But the cash will only continue to roll in for the game's developer, Epic Games, as the app is yet to be released on Android mobile platforms.

Fortnite joins a growing number of so-called "battle royale" style multiplayer games that have proved to be amongst the most popular online shooters of 2017 and 2018. The folks at Epic Games noticed that and they chose to shutdown the servers for a couple of hours in order to fix the login issues.
