Fortnite is not working today, what’s happening

Fortnite is not working since 10:00 am on February 20. The game's servers are under maintenance for the arrival of Season 2 of Chapter 2

Since 10:00 am on February 20, Fortnite is down: players trying to access the video game can't get into the servers. But don't worry, it's an inefficiency planned by Epic Games, the software house that developed the game. Today, in fact, begins the Season 2 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite  and to release the update, Epic Games has decided to block access to the game servers.

No alarm and no worries, it is simply a scheduled maintenance and that should last at least a couple of hours. Epic Games has already warned that the work may take a little longer than expected because the update will be substantial. And the reasons are different: with the start of the new season are expected new materials (they speak insistently of the addition of gold), new skins to buy and also the addition of an oil platform in the game map. A few more hours and we will know all the news prepared by Epic Games. The maintenance should last from 10:00 until 12:00-13:00.

Why Fortnite is not working

Fortnite is under maintenance for the start of Chapter 2 Season 2. No problem with the servers or the network architecture, but a simple maintenance of which, by the way, Epic Games had also given notice. To simplify the work of technicians, the software house has decided to block access to game servers for a couple of hours, just enough time to install the new update. Epic Games also announced that the weight of the update will be greater than usual and the reason is simple: there are many new features expected in the new season.

Chapter 2 Season 2 of Fortnite: what's new

Many rumors and indiscretions, but no certainty. In recent weeks there have been many news about the possible new features of Fortnite, but no confirmation has come from Epic Games. The software house has launched the advertising campaign for the new season: a video teaser shown on video walls of the major cities of the world. Video in which they are shown phone numbers: who tries to call hears a voice that warns "Agents of the Shadows compromised, recruitment has begun, good hunting agent. And the mystery deepens. But there are only a few hours left to discover all the news of the new Fortnite Season.
