Fortnite: Server Down – When and how long is it offline?

This is the downtime in the morning: The servers are expected to be shut down at 10:00 AM CET to install update 21.40. Matchmaking is already disabled 30 minutes beforehand, so you won’t be able to search for new rounds after 9:30 a.m.

When can you play again? During such maintenance work, the servers are usually offline for several hours and playing is then no longer possible. The downtime is expected to last between 30 minutes and 2 hours. The updates of the past few weeks have shown that.

Such maintenance work can always lead to technical problems, bugs and delays. If such complications should arise, we will report them here immediately.
