Popular Battle Royale game Fortnite, went down for five hours due to server issues, according to a report by The Verge.

The Fortnite Status team informed players that the game had been taken down due to an issue that players were reporting. The issue in question was preventing many players from logging in, telling them, "You do not have permission to play Fortnite".

Epic games then took the servers down as they investigated and eventually fixed the issue.

Players also reported issues with the Epic Games Store application. Many players couldn't log-in or access their library and couldn't play offline. This issue was also fixed.
