Can’t login to Fortnite? You’re not alone. The Fortnite servers are currently down and players are unable to login. Players are receiving error messages such as “sorry you are visiting our service too frequent”.

Other errors include “unable to sign into your account for Xbox Live”, and “unable to sign into your account for PlayStation Network”, and “502 bad gateway”.

Players are unable to log in on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment, and Epic are aware of the issues that are going on.

The official Epic Games website recently tweeted acknowledging the fact that there are issues with the Epic Games launcher. They have stated that they are looking into log in and purchase issues, and will provide an update when they have more information.

The Fortnite Status Twitter account has also tweeted the same tweet as seen above.

Epic have done all they can in order to keep the Fortnite servers stable in order to allow every player to watch the Fortnite Star Wars event. Playground, Creative, and custom matches were disabled hours in advance and according to leakers, the anti-cheat system has been disabled to reduce the server load.

this happens every live event, because there are so many players trying to get into servers, that’s it. it happens every time and will always happen tbh, calm down

Rofl kinda rude to tell people to calm down when they waited for am event and weren’t warned not everyone would be guaranteed to get into.

kinda rude to say Fuck You Epic Games when they’ve done nothing but try their hardest with this game since day one, all the while having to tolerate such a rude and impatient community no matter how hard they try, y’all don’t deserve the amount of effort they put into this game honestly, but sure, keep yelling and swearing at them, I’m Sure That’ll Get You Very Far
