Fortnite Down: Update 9.21 Server Status as Epic Games ready new patch release on June 12

Fortnite Update 9.21 Patch Notes will be dropping shortly as Epic Games prepare to take the game offline across all platforms.

This is for the new content update releasing June 12th.

We would normally anticipate a smaller update for the game, but given downtime is involved, it’s possible that Epic have different plans.

Epic normally alternates each week between a ‘big’ update and a content update. This week, it should be the latter.

Maybe there are additional bugs they want to be removed ahead of their big live events coming later this week (The celebrity Pro-Am and Creative Showdown).

We’ve seen players at E3 trying out new modes not live in the game, so it’s unlikely this is to improve anything on the show floor. So only time will tell.

When the update does drop you can look forward to (potentially) a slew of new features, including a new weapon, possibly some new LTMS and of course bug fixes and more across all game modes including: Battle Royale, Save the World and Creative.

On top of this though, we might see something new added to the game to help build the hype around the huge Battle Royale Monster seemingly circling the island.

However, before any of this can happen, players will need to endure some server maintenance which requires taking the game offline for a few hours.

Last night the developers confirmed that they would be launching the new Update 9.21 update with server downtime starting at 9am BST on June 12. A tweet from the official Twitter account read:

Watch your proximity! The v9.21 update lands tomorrow, June 12. Downtime begins at 4 AM ET(0800 UTC). the Epic Games announcement explains.

It’s still unclear how long the game will be offline, but it’s certainly worth assuming that the game will be inaccessible for anything between 1-3 hours.

So we’ll probably see it come back online by around 10-12pm.

Stay tuned for more details later this morning!
