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.

As you’ve probably deduced already, if the service is labeled 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.
