Servers Not Responding – Fortnite 24.40 

The Servers Not Responding error implies that the servers are temporarily down or that you cannot play Fortnite due to a problem with your setup.

This error can happen on any platform. Your game becomes unplayable as soon as the problem appears on the screen, as it will not allow you to reconnect to the internet.


Frequently, the problem is Epic Game’s fault. Servers will be taken offline on a regular basis for maintenance. Check the Epic Games Server Status website or Twitter for news on server maintenance to ensure that all services are up and running.

There’s nothing you can do if it indicates the servers are down for maintenance. You’ll have to wait until the process is completed before proceeding. This can happen for several hours or even days.

If the servers are up and running but you’re still getting the Servers not responding message, try hitting the RETRY button several times to get online. However, it is very likely to fail. Troubleshooting your network connection is the next step you should do.


  • One of the simplest ways to fix many common problems is to restart your device, whether it’s a PC or a console. This procedure clears any problems that are hindering your gaming by resetting the program.
  • You should reset your router and modem to further troubleshoot your network connection. To do so, just disconnect your routers and modem, then wait at least 5 to 10 seconds before plugging them again in. When it’s okay, start Fortnite and it should be able to connect to the internet.
