Fortnite goes down: Epic Games announces scheduled maintenance work on the Battle Royale shooter for today – update 23.20 is coming. On the Short message service Twitter the developers call first information about the downtime. So it starts at the usual time at 10 a.m. As soon as the maintenance starts, neither logins nor game joins are possible. The matchmaking system is switched off half an hour earlier. At around 9:30 a.m. you will take part in the last game before downtime.
Downtime and update 23.20 today
How long Fortnite (buy now €18.23) will remain offline today is not clear from the information. As a rule, the maintenance of the Battle Royale shooter is short-lived. It can be assumed that the servers will return at lunchtime and Fortnite can then be played again as usual. In the course of the downtime, Epic Games is installing update 23.20, which should contain additional optimizations and bug fixes. Concrete details about the update 23.20 are missing so far.
