The Fortnite Servers are currently down and players can’t login.
Players have been reporting that they’ve been unable to login to Fortnite for the past 20 minutes, which has prompted a reply from Epic Games. Epic recently tweeted out on the official Fortnite account that they are aware of the issues that prevents players from logging in and they are working on a fix. Here’s the full tweet:
“We’re aware of an issue preventing players from logging in and are working towards a fix. We’ll let you know once we’ve resolved the problem. https://status.epicgames.com/ ”

Looking at the status page on Epic Games, all of the services are operational apart from login. If you’re booting up the game now, you won’t be able to get into a game of Fortnite, but if you’re already logged in and playing, you won’t be affected by this issue.
Epic usually resolve server and login issues promptly, so you won’t have to wait long until you can login and play, but we’ll keep you updated with the latest and update this article when the servers are back online.
