Is Fortnite down? Online server status, maintenance and downtime monitoring

by Ross Deason


If you’ve been playing Fortnite for long enough, you’ll know that the massively popular game requires regular updates, patches and downtime in order to keep it running smoothly on PC, PS4, Xbox One and all other platforms. In this post, you can monitor the server status 24 hours a day.


The free-to-play battle royale version of Fortnite is enjoyed by millions of players around the world every day and, as mentioned, updated on a regular basis. Every week the developers release at least one major patch or content update.

While scheduled maintenance and downtime like this is usually known about well in advance, unscheduled downtime, server crashes, urgent hotfixes and more can cause some, or all, aspects of the Epic Games title to stop working unexpectedly.

Fortnite Battle Royale hasn't experienced many major server issues since the launch of Season 9.


Luckily for us, and you, we are able to monitor all aspects of the game via the developer’s status page and plugin, which provides live information on all Fortnite services and tracks any reported or past issues.

If you’re having any issues playing Fortnite Battle Royale today, you check below and see if there are any reported or ongoing incidents:

UPDATE: July 10, 2019

Epic Games have revealed that they're aware of players having issues logging into the battle royale game mode at the moment. It's unclear how long it will take to resolve the problem, but you can check out their official response below.


As you’ve probably deduced already, if the service is labelled as ‘Operational’ in green text, it should mean that there are no issues that can be affecting your experience in-game. If you’re still having problems, they are likely being caused by something on your end rather than Fortnite’s.

When an issue is flagged, or downtime begins, it will be noted and highlighted. You can click on the plus symbol next to ‘Fortnite’ if you want more information about any specific service like parties, voice chat, stats and more.

With Season 10 right around the corner, downtime could be a more frequent issue as major changes have been made, and continue to be made, throughout the season.
