Frortnite Is Back Online

Fortnite is back online after being taken offline for several hours due to server issues last Thursday. Epic doesn’t share an explanation for the outage and the official Fortnite Status Twitter account confirmed the fix and also promised a make-good of sorts to compensate players for the time spent offline. More details on what that reward is should arrive this week.

Epic hasn’t said what’s causing the problem. However, over on its status website, the company describes the incident as a “major outage.” That same webpage notes the Epic Games Store is suffering from “degraded performance,” According to Downdetector, there are also reports of people being unable to play GTA Online and access Discord, but it’s not clear if those incidents are related.

2021 has seen its share of notable internet outages. It was only earlier this month an Amazon Web Services networking issue led to many websites, including Disney+ and Vice, becoming inaccessible for part of the day. We’ll note here Fortnite runs on an AWS backend.
