Fortnite has issued a response to gamers, after the hashtag #fortnitemiddleeastservers began trending in the Middle East.
The gaming company responded after gamers demanded a server exclusively for the Middle East.
A total of 43k people have already like the response which stated, that although Fortnite doesn’t have the capacity to increase servers in the MENA region right now, it’s hoping for a solution in the coming months.
We work with multiple cloud providers to supply the infrastructure for Fortnite servers globally. None of these providers yet have capacity available in the Middle East region, but we expect to have a solution in the next few months. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more!

Middle East games are calling on Fortnite to provide more servers
We, the gamers from the MENA region suffer from connectivity issues due the fact that there are no nearby servers. We kindly ask you to look into this issues since it would make our fortnite gaming experience much more enjoyable ❤️
