Fortnite Servers Are Down Due To Login Issues [Update]
If you're seeing "You do not have permission to play Fortnite" or "Your account no longer has play access to Fortnite," don't worry, you're probably not banned.
Update: Fortnite servers are back up and the ability to login to your account properly should be restored, according to Epic Games. Earlier today, players were receiving error messages at login suggesting they were banned from Fortnite, which the Fortnite Status account on Twitter confirmed were part of an issue the team was working to resolve.

Fortnite servers have gone down temporarily to deal with a series of login issues that are kicking or barring players from entering the game. Error messages like "You do not have permission to play Fortnite" or "Your account no longer has play access to Fortnite" are probably concerning to see, but according to the official Fortnite Status account on Twitter, there's no need to worry--you are probably not actually banned from Fortnite.
