With every big Fortnite update, players will have to endure a few hours of server downtime, and v21.40 is no different. 

The servers go down at 04:00 ET (09:00 BST), and matchmaking will be disabled approximately 30 minutes before the server downtime gets underway.

We expect the server downtime to last three to four hours to deploy the Fortnite v21.40 update on all platforms.
