Those looking for some Fortnite fun today, you might be having issues connecting to the game, and it’s not you, but the game itself. Epic Games has acknowledged the Fortnite down reports that are surfacing this December 29, though there’s no specific reason as to what’s happening.

Over on the game’s subreddit for Battle Royale, multiple threads have cropped up regarding the outage:
