Fortnite Extends Season 2 Downtime by 'a few hours'

Epic Games has announced that server downtime for Season 2 of Battle Royale Chapter 5 will be "a few hours longer than usual".

At the time of writing, downtime for Fortnite's latest Season started six hours ago - a duration notably longer than the usual four-hour maintenance window seen with typical Seasonal updates. Epic did not provide an ETA on when the servers are expected to come back online, so it's clear they're experiencing issues that need resolving before players jump in.
