Fortnite Down: Server Status latest for update 11.40 as scheduled downtime hits

Update 1 – Fortnite Down

The downtime has now started – Fortnite is offline.

We're still unsure about how long the game is going be taken down, but as soon as we have any information we'll let you know.

We're anticipating the title to be down at least a few hours, but you never know…. Fortnite likes to surprise us with longer or shorter updates sometimes.

We'll keep you posted as more information presents itself.

Fortnite Chapter 2 – 5/5

Reviewed on PC

In a world where games are constantly fighting to stay on top, Fortnite Chapter 2 brings an incredible feeling to players both old and new. There’s nothing veterans want more than a fresh start, and that’s exactly what has been delivered. The future is bright for Fortnite, and this is only the beginning.

The Good

  • Bots are a bold but great decision
  • The map and overhauled water feels and looks amazing
  • Fortnite’s new graphics and lighting make it look brand new

The Bad

  • The loot pool needs some more additions
  • Quite a few expected bugs


The next big update is due to land in Fortnite today, roughly a month since we last saw a big update arrive on the title.

Fortnite Update 11.40 is set to arrive soon – early morning on January 15, 2020 – and Epic Games have confirmed there will be a period of server downtime so that the patch can be rolled out properly.

We don't know exactly how long the game will be offline for, but traditionally we see these types of updates keep the game down for about 2-3 hours – though this is the first update in a while, so this time the offline period could be longer.

Downtime will begin at 9am GMT (that's 1am PST and 4am EST).

There are a series of bugs that we expect to be fixed (you can read about those on our 11.40 patch update confirmed page), and we may even see the arrival of some Overtime challenges, too.
