If you are reading this, there is a high chance that you tried to log in to the popular Battle Royale game, thinking of how you will win your next Victory Royale. But to your dismay, you were caught off-guard by Fortnite's error message or a loading screen wheel that seems to be spinning forever.

Both these are good indicators that Fortnite may be currently down.

Why Does Fortnite Go Down?

It can sometimes happen that Fortnite servers go down due to extremely high traffic, which used to occur during Live Events in the game. It can also be possible that the Fortnite servers are experiencing performance issues impacting your connectivity.

Fortnite servers can also be down due to maintenance updates. As many of you will know, Fortnite servers experience downtime every once in a while due to scheduled maintenance.

Is Fortnite Down?

Usually, Epic Games servers are pretty stable and have little history of fluctuating performance. But if you have trouble loading into Fortnite Battle Royale, there may be a chance that the game servers are down. If this is the case, then there is an easy way for you to check the current status of Fortnite servers.
