Update: The downtime is done and the servers are back. Enjoy!
A new patch is upon us and Fortnite is currently down for maintenance! This downtime usually lasts for a few hours, so there’s not long left to wait. A new weapon and LTM are on the way for Battle Royale so sit tight, this downtime usually lasts for a couple of hours.
When are the Fortnite Servers back up?
Epic Games gave a heads up on Twitter, asking people to check their official status page for updates.
Downtime for the v5.20 update has begun.

For reference, previous downtimes have lasted until about 11am UTC (12pm GMT) while some it was down from about 8am UTC to 10:15am UTC (9am GMT to 11:15am GMT). That means we’d expect the game to be down for between two to four hours before the Fortnite servers are back up.
In other news, there have been some developments in the Fortnite’s Android release – with the Epic Games CEO weighing in.
While we also found out that the turning speed of the Guided Missile is linked to your frames-per-second.
