Are we getting new Fortnite servers soon?

Good news for Fortnite fans! It looks like there will be some new servers coming to the game soon, which should significantly improve ping for many players. This information has so far only been leaked by data miners, without an official confirmation released by Epic Games. 

Data mining has recently revealed that Epic Games may be about to release a new set of servers for Fortnite Battle Royale. Game files shared by FNBRLeaks and MystxcLeaks on Twitter contain a list of cities, states, and countries under the heading “Beta”. According to data miners, they are “currently in development”. The list includes Seoul, Belgium, the Netherlands, Mumbai, Paris, Montreal, London, Singapore, and Ohio, among others. It is currently not known when they will go into operation.

New servers for Fortnite

With Fortnite’s already massive player base growing by the day, the need for quality servers and high server count has never been greater. Luckily, Epic Games seems to be well on its way to filling that need and, if servers do indeed go live in all of those locations, improving the matchmaking experience for players around the world.

Epic Games uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) for Fortnite’s entire online infrastructure and all servers run on AWS cloud servers, allowing events like the Season 4 rocket launch to successfully take place at the same time worldwide. The continuous development of AWS and the Fortnite servers over the past few months seems to allow for gradual expansion. The new servers will reportedly be located in the following cities/countries:

  • Seoul
  • South Carolina
  • Oregon
  • Mumbai
  • Ohio
  • Dublin
  • Singapore
  • London
  • Paris
  • Netherlands
  • Taiwan
  • Iowa
  • Belarus
  • Montreal
