Due to ongoing maintenance across all platforms, including PS4, Xbox, Switch, mobile, and PC, the ‘Fortnite Servers down’ problem is still in the facedown mode. The confirmation came from Epic Games that Fortnite servers are down at 9 AM GMT, on Tuesday, December 15, 2020.
The good news for the Fortnite gamers is that this is going to be a coalesce launch, wherein no compatible platforms are going to be left behind. As claimed by Epic Games, ‘Fortnite servers down’ will be facing downtime for up to three hours though the game could be back online before this time. This is a rough calculation by Epic games suggesting how long things could take.
A text from epic reads “The v15.10 update is scheduled for release on December 15. Downtime will start at approx. 4 AM ET (09:00 UTC)”
“As a reminder, due to the addition of Performance Mode on PC, please note that the patch size on PC will be larger than normal for players who have high-resolution textures installed (approx. 23 GB)”.
