Current Fortnite server status
It is important to note that the servers for the fan-favorite game will go down whenever there is a major update for the game, such as the most recent 3.19 update.
This is intentional, as Epic Games can not properly apply an update when there are millions of players on the servers, so they bring them down for a bit to apply updates correctly.
So if you are having trouble connecting, check to see if an update is being applied, which will likely be the reason.
