When Will Downtime End?

With every new Fortnite season comes a stretch of time when downtime begins and players sit patiently (!) waiting for the servers to be live once more. During this time the question everyone asks is: when will downtime end?

Once the new season countdown ends, downtime will begin. As long as there are no unexpected delays to the start of the new season we should expect the servers to be up and running by 7am ET, or by 12pm ET at the very latest.

Downtime usually lasts anywhere between three and five hours, sometimes longer if there is an issue. Be patient and check Epic Games server status for more details.
