Fortnite fans have been begging Epic Games to implement servers in the Middle East and thanks to a new leak, it seems like players’ prayers might be answered.
Even though Fortnite has been around for over two years and continues to be one of the most popular video games around the world, there are still some issues, unfortunately, plaguing players.
Fortnite players in the Middle East do not have their own server, so they have to play with an insane amount of ping. Most players in this region play with 100+ ping regularly.
On August 5, there was a new leak published which gives more proof that Middle Eastern Fortnite fans will soon be receiving their own server.
Potential new servers coming to Fortnite
According to a post by fnbrInsider, there will be 15 new servers added for Fortnite.
- Iowa, USA
- Oregon, USA
- South Carolina, USA
PC players can now run ping tests in Fortnite to see if their server region will change with the rumored server additions. Console players can not run a manual ping test, so they will have to hang tight for the time being.

While this leak is promising, it isn’t confirmed that the Middle East and other regions will be officially implemented.
Epic Games does not comment on rumors or leaks, so the only way to keep up-to-date with official information is by checking Fortnite’s in-game news tracker or Fortnite’s social media pages.
We hope the Middle East region will get the relief they have been asking for!
