Original Story – Fortnite is down this evening with Epic Games Fortnite Status support twitter account confirming that there's ongoing issues with services.
"We're currently investigating issues with logins, matchmaking, the Item Shop, and other Fortnite services. We'll provide an update when these are resolved." the account told fans.
This appears to be an issue with all platforms and all modes.
Independent outage monitor Down Detector has also received a surge of Fortnite down reports with the majority of issues relating to 'Server connection' issues and 'log-in' problems.
For those who do not know, DownDetector is an independent website which tracks social mentions around certain topics to detect outages across the globe.
The Down Detector outage map says that the Fortnite issues are hitting users across the world, but most of all in the UK, Europe and the United States.

"Is Fortnite matchmaking down? Tf am I supposed to do in quarantine?" joked one player.
A second player didn't see the funny side though, passively-aggressively writing " Fortnite:*makes a new update with a game mode that has more unique gameplay *Also Fortnite:* Server's are down within hours of the update*
