When Will Split Screen Return To Fortnite?

Unfortunately, there’s no solid answer for when split-screen will return to Fortnite. However, as mentioned previously, the removal isn’t permanent and is simply due to technical issues.

Although fans are loving Chapter 3 Season 1, there have been a lot of server issues since the launch earlier today. The official Fortnite Twitter account responded to the outage stating that it was the biggest Chapter launch in the game’s history.

So, it’s clear that Epic Games have a lot on their plate at the minute, but reports suggest that they are working on getting the split screen feature back in the game as soon as possible.
