Twitch Ran Into Some Problems After Fortnite's Galactus Event

The Galactus event pulled in a huge crowd, and it appears to have led to some short-lived issues on Twitch.


Fortnite's latest Marvel event, which brought the devourer of worlds himself, Galactus, to the game, was a huge draw, but it also seemingly caused some issues.

Streaming site Twitch reported that its platform experienced a problem that led to "multiple service issues." In some cases, this problem prevented people from accessing the site and logging in altogether.

Thankfully for Twitch users, the issues were fixed less than an hour after they were first widely reported. Twitch should be operating normally now, but as always, your mileage may vary.

The Galactus event lays the foundation for what will become Season 5, but it turns out you won't be able to play any further until Season 5 begins overnight. That's because Fortnite has been taken offline, rendering it unplayable. Booting up the game presents you with a countdown to the new season, and your only option is to exit.
