The servers of the Fortnite video game that knows the last season's great success fell for 8 hours due to some emergency maintenance. Usually, in most cases developers turn off servers to run some important new updates or complete maintenance.
In this case, things are a bit different. Developers were surprised to find out that server maintenance lasted for 8 hours. Fortnite is undoubtedly one of the most popular games, so a bug has an impact on several million users who were disappointed with the evolution of things.
When we talk about such a successful game, such a long delay makes us very impressed. OR epic Games made some statements about the cause of the problems.
"At this time, the connection is blocked at all Epic endpoints, included games, sites and the Epic Games Launcher. This is due to a database failure that we are trying to resolve as soon as possible, "said Epic Games spokesperson.
Although the developers then went through the required fix, the servers could not handle the traffic and they came again.
"We will proceed to an extraordinary interruption of the services provided, in order to proceed with its updates database in order to finally solve the problem, "said a spokesman for Epic Games. It's definitely not good news for gamers, but we can not do anything but wait. Note that no backups have been made to the servers, so we do not know what status you will find your accounts after the security update.
