Fortnite is still one of the biggest games in the world right now, but like any other game, it’s not without its issues, meaning sometimes it just won’t work. Is now one of those times? It certainly looks like there are server issues with the game right now, but what about a full Fortnite network failure? Will you be able to log into the game and get playing again soon? Is developer Epic Games aware of the issue? We’ve got the answers.
Is there a Fortnite network failure?
At this precise moment in time, there does indeed look to be a Fortnite network failure. Players across all platforms are finding it impossible to login to Epic Games services, which seems to be caused by network server issues on the studio’s side. It’s been that way for just under an hour, at the time of writing, and players are left unable to get access to Fortnite at all.
The good news is that Epic Games are fully aware of the issue. The Fortnite team posted an update on the official Twitter feed, admitting that they have heard that players are experiencing issues when attempting to login to Epic’s services. The team are working on fixing the problem right now, and direct players to the status update page for further information.

How can I fix it and login to Fortnite?
Both fortunately and unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to fix the problem and get Fortnite working again. The issue is all on the server side, not your personal internet. The good news is that means your PC/console setup is fine, but the bad news is that you’ll have to wait for the Fortnite team to fix the game before you can play it again. Just keep an eye on the server status page, and when that goes green, you can try logging in once again.
