After a slow start to 2024, Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is full of exciting additions coming throughout February. With another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collaboration on the way, along with the possible return of Reality Augments, the remaining weeks of Fortnite Underground are set to deliver multiple cosmetic and in-game changes to the Battle Royale. First up is Fortnite update v28.20, dropping today as soon as it loads onto the servers.
Here's when fans can expect the latest Fortnite downtime to end so they can hop right into Fortnite update v28.20.
Fortnite Downtime Today (Feb. 7): When Will Servers Be Back Up
The Fortnite downtime today, Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024, starts at 4 a.m. ET. Matchmaking will be disabled about 30 minutes prior as Epic Games prepares to launch Fortnite update v28.20.
In the past, Fortnite downtime has only lasted a few hours. Recently, though, the servers have taken much longer to come back online; Fortnite update v28.10 did not launch until 9 a.m. ET, as did all the Fortnite OG updates. Therefore, fans can expect the servers to be back up this morning anytime after 7 a.m. ET, but likely closer to 9 a.m. ET.
