Players are wondering if Fortnite servers are down right now on December 22nd 2021. Here’s the latest status.
Although we had the launch of Chapter 3 season 1 earlier in the month, players have been waiting for the release of Winterfest 2021 since the start of December. We already knew when the Christmas event would start but Epic Games confirmed it yesterday in a blog post.
Along with the release of Wintefest, Epic Games announced that there MJ and Spider-Man from the new No Way Home movie would be coming to the item shop a few days ago, two characters which featured in the Christmas event trailer.
Since the start of the new chapter, Fortnite has been plagued the game. On launch day, there were so many players trying to enter the game at the same time that the servers crashed.
Epic then deployed a queue and even when the timer went to zero, players still couldn’t log in to Fortnite and they’d have to restart the game and join a queue again. Once the issue was fixed, players experience a blank white screen which would persist even when restarting.
