Why is Fortnite Down?

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, scheduled for a March 8th release, has been delayed due to server downtime. What's the latest on the game's status?

Themed "Myths and Mortals," this season draws inspiration from Greek mythology.  Last weekend's live event saw players unleash the evils of Pandora's Box.

Fortnite foretells that mythical figures, Hades and Zeus among them, now reign over the Island in otherworldly fury. This season challenges you to counter their mythological powers with their own.

Explore Mount Olympus, Grim Gate, The Underworld, and more in this new setting.

Unleash divine powers – wield Zeus' thunderbolt or soar with Icarus' wings. Fortnite hints that the Chains of Hades may be unveiled as the season progresses.

So, with servers down, when can fans finally experience the latest Fortnite season? Here's what we know.
