Fortnite players are stuck on the connecting screen while trying to log in to their accounts.

Traditionally, Epic Games tends to keep a good handle on issues that pop up in its flagship battle royale, Fortnite. Like all popular games, however, not every day is a flawless session from megaserver to individual users. This issue is one such example as players find themselves stuck—infinitely waiting for their matches to start.

Here's what can be done to fix it.

Fortnite Stuck on Connecting Screen: How to Fix

As we mentioned before, this is an issue between the individual player's system and the Fortnite gaming servers. Players can often find the source of the problem either on their own device or with the company's setup when connection issues arise.

Checking which end is causing the disruption is as easy as logging onto your social media and scrolling. Fortnite, itself, has a Twitter profile dedicated to cataloging issues and broadcasting solutions to its users. Intense players may want to toggle notifications to keep up with the latest news on the servers.

Unfortunately, as this is an issue with Epic's client rather than a local service outage—or otherwise—there isn't anything players can do to remedy it. They'll just have to wait for Epic to come out with a fix. Depending on the severity, this could take a few hours to over a day.

Players are advised to stay tuned to Fortnite's official channels to keep up with the latest updates.
