Is Epic Games Down Right Now?

As of 6:00 PM ET on Dec. 21, the Epic Games servers are currently working, but Fortnite users have been experiencing some login and matchmaking errors. The cause of this is unknown, but the developers are aware of it, and it should be corrected soon.

Other properties, like Rocket League and Fall Guys, are functioning just fine, so you shouldn’t run into any problems with these titles.

How to Check Epic Games Server Status

You can check the Epic Games server status on the following pages:

Your first stop should definitely be the server status page. Each entry displays a green-colored ‘Operational’ standing unless an error has occurred for a particular title. The site also provides you with information about previous incidents that have occurred, primarily regarding downtimes for games.

But if you’re still experiencing problems with the Epic Games server, you can check Downdetector to see if others are encountering the same issues. Those seeing a spike in reports may want to steer clear of the platform until the system has been updated. As this site works with user reports, it’s a great early warning sign if things are getting bad.

Although the Epic Games Help Twitter account doesn’t have as much content as the previous two, it can sometimes provide you with information on updates and recent errors.

That does it for our guide on the Epic Games server status. While here, be sure to explore the relevant links below, including how to fix Error Code 0 in Fortnite.
