There was an outage on Monday, and some saw a foreboding error message
Fortnite experienced game-wide problems with logins earlier on Monday, keeping some players from accessing their accounts. The company instituted downtime while it investigated the issues, but said that things were fixed at 6:09PM ET.
While the issues were going on, some players were seeing messages saying they didn’t have permission to play the game. According to the game’s official status account, though, “Players who see a message saying ‘You do not have permission to play Fortnite’ or ‘Your account no longer has play access to Fortnite’ because of this issue are not banned from Fortnite.”
