Apart from not being able to sign-in to Fortnite, players are also finding it difficult to engage in matchmaking!
Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite players are facing difficulties while trying to sign up or queue up for the online game. The collaboration of Fortnite with Futurama for a special event has coincided with the former getting affected by a bunch of issues. This particular event has brought to the fore a bunch of vibrant skins centered on the main trio in the show.
In the past, Fortnite has had tie-ups with several popular media franchises. The collaboration with Futurama, though expected, is quite special.

The official Fortnite Status Twitter account by Epic Games has shed some light on the issues which Fortnite is plagued with at the moment. The developer has accepted the fact that players have been suffering from several issues post the unveiling of its new event. While many players are unable to sign-in to the game, some are not able to queue up for matchmaking.
