Fortnite suffers from login and matchmaking issues

If you are having trouble logging in to Fortnite today, you are not alone. Epic Games has confirmed that Battle Royale currently has login and matching issues.

As of now (2:07 PM Eastern Time), trying to launch a Fortnite game will receive the following message:

Epic did not share an explanation of the outage, but promised to provide information when a solution becomes available. At the same time, if you want to win Victory Royale in the ongoing Winterfest event of the game, then you are out of luck for the time being. The same is true if you wish to fight your enemies as Boba Fett to celebrate today’s premiere of the character’s new Disney+ series.

We will pay close attention to the situation and provide updates when the problem is resolved.
