The Fortnite servers shut down early before the 22.10 update. We know that every Thursday, Fortnite gets a weekly refresh. Sometimes, Epic Games updates Fortnite between weeks. These updates can contain anything from error code fixes to new weapons and skins. This time, Fortnite has shut down early for the 22.10 update.
Are the Fortnite Servers Down?
Due to an issue, we are entering downtime early. Update 22.10 will still release tomorrow October 4th.

According to Fortnite Status on Twitter, the Fortnite servers are already down to address update 22.10. Apparently, there is an issue that has arrived which needs some extra ironing out before we can experience Fortnite update 22.10 on October 4, 2022.
Usually, Fortnite servers go down at around 1:00 am PT before an update. This time, it is different. Though we don’t exactly know why server maintenance has started early, we can guess why.
Fortnite update 22.10 will bring us Bytes’ Dark Bargain Quests. These quests will be viewable from the Quest menu. Upon completing them, you will unlock more versions of the Byte-exclusive harvesting tool.
