As reported by, currently Fortnite’s servers are offline, it is unclear whether due to scheduled maintenance or due to unexpected technical problems. Let’s analyze the situation.
There is no trace of news of any maintenance operations on the social channels of Epic Games and Fortnite, for this reason, one might think of a temporary unexpected that prevents the proper functioning of the servers. It is also true that communications could arrive shortly, remember that the 11.30 Fortnite update is expected for today or December 12 at the latest, so developers could be at work preparing the ground for the arrival of the patch.
The 11.30 update should introduce substantial changes for the Battle Royale, Creative and Save the World modes, as well as officially launching the Fortnite 2019 Christmas event, not yet officially announced. It is not excluded that the latter will be able to start next week after the Fortnite x Star Wars crossover scheduled for December 14 and that will see the screening of a preview scene of Star Wars The Ascent of Skywalker.
Fortnite will be featured at The Game Awards 2019 on December 13th with a special announcement promised by Epic Games, we will certainly know more about it on the night between Thursday and Friday.
