Fortnite joined the downtime after the live event of Galactus Fortnite. This is when the Fortnite down servers are back online. Fortnite season 5 will be launched in a couple of hours.
The season was initially supposed to end on 30 November, but with the official announcement that the Galactus event was scheduled for today, it was clear that the Epic Games site had a wrong end date.
Fortnite servers have encountered some problems in the past when a lot of players attempt to log in at the same time. For example, the huge Fortnite Galactus event attracted millions of people to the game, and as a result, some had trouble logging in. Past Fortnite incidents have been plagued by similar problems, which is why Epic Games suggests that players log into the game in advance if a major event happens.
It will be fascinating to see whether or not this season of the game manages to channel the same enthusiasm as Chapter 2 of Season 4. The inclusion of Marvel characters seemed to have given rise to a lot of new players, and the current success of The Mandalorian may have a similar impact. Whether or not it is going to continue, though, is anyone’s guess.
Fortnite down: How long are Fortnite servers down for Season 5 update?
Builders Epic Video Games announced that the launch of Fortnite Season 5 was scheduled for December 2, 2020.
The excellent news is that this can be a unified launch, which ensures that no necessary action is left behind.
For now, Fortnite players will just have to sit back and wait patiently for the Epic Games to address the problem. This is likely to be a little frustrating for some, considering that the game was down for a large part of the day yesterday. Luckily, this downtime is likely to prove much shorter!
Fortnite is currently available for use on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
