Fortnite: Battle Royale Servers are Shutdown - Millions of Players are Outraged

While it seems that PC players are missing out on this portion, patch sizes have been reduced for the Battle Royale portion of Fortnite.

Featuring incredibly unique graphics, a one-of-a-kind building system, constant developer supports, and various other attributes, Fortnite shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. An update on Thursday around 1 PM ET said that the game should be fixed "over the next couple of hours".

Numerous professional gamers and other industry insiders have come up with their reviews by saying that they have permanently removed the Guided Missiles weapon from the game entirely and there's no way to get it back.

The outage has been acknowledged by Epic Games, the game's developer, but it said that it now didn't have a timeframe for when the game would be back up.

When will the servers be back up?

There is a critical failure with one of the game's databases; therefore, the login and matchmaking for games are unstable.

We'll let you know when you can expect to jump back in and play Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Last night, Epic Games had to take Fortnite's servers down to perform emergency maintenance.

Unless you've been up all night frantically refreshing Twitter to see if Fortnite is back up, you might have missed the news earlier that it has completely crashed.

Also, worth noting is that this is the longest server downtime Fortnite: Battle Royale fans had to experience since January.

A major change is that the two teams will enter the map on seperate buses, the final storm circle will also be visible on the minimap from the start of the game.

Epic Games reported that they have made progress on the internal investigation and may have discovered the problem causing the login issues.
