It’s been a painful day for Fortnite players, as not only did the community have to deal with scheduled maintenance and downtime, but there was also additional unplanned downtime after the new 3.0.0 update went live.

Fortnite Logging In Problems: How to Fix Fortnite Not Logging In Issues
First, ensure that you have rebooted the game, to allow for any changes to be applied. If that doesn’t work, we’d recommend rebooting your console or PC.

Servers will likely be up in about an hour. We will update you again in one hour with more details!
Thanks for your patience, we can’t wait to get you started on Season 3!
