Fortnite is still one of the most popular games worldwide. Millions of mostly younger players meet every day for a happy chase, to play together or against each other. In contrast to many other shooters, the graphics are cartoon-style and the interaction in the game world is equipped with a certain humor. Since Fortnite is particularly popular with schoolchildren from a certain age, it is quite fitting that it is morning in Germany when publisher Epic Games carries out important maintenance work on the servers. How long will Fortnite be offline?
Fortnite down – that’s why the game isn’t working at the moment
This morning, many players are likely to ask themselves annoyed: Why can’t I find any more opponents in Fortnite (buy now)? Why doesn’t the matchmaking work and why are the servers down in Fortnite? The answer is relatively simple. There will be a scheduled Fortnite server shutdown on Tuesday, January 31st.
Due to maintenance, no new matches will be assigned after 09:30. And from 10:00 a.m. all Fortnite servers are down. This affects all platforms, namely PC, Mac, Playstation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X & S, Xbox One, Switch and also Android. A so-called hotfix is installed for the 23.30 update, which is intended to fix problems in the game.
