Fortnite servers go down as Season 5 launches

13 Jul

Fortnite’s servers have been taken down in the same day as the game’s Season 5 launch due to UX issues.

Developer Epic Games found issues that affected players’ ability to log in and get into matches. Before Epic took the servers down, players were put into queues with a waiting period of 28 minutes or longer.

As of the moment, the PC game is not available to launch, while other versions have waiting times of up to 40 minutes or more before returning login failures. Check the status page here.
