Fortnite Error Esp-buimet-003, Error Occurred While Connecting to Epic Servers

As we’ve said up top, the Fortnite Error esp-buimet-003, aka “Error Occurred While Connecting to Epic Servers,” has been plaguing certain players on PlayStation and Xbox. The first thing we need to make clear is that whatever is going on is not up to you. At least, not as far as we know at the moment. It’s not your console, nor is it your internet connection or anything like that. So, you can stop banging your head against the wall trying to repair it. Therein lies the somewhat bad news – There is nothing that you can do to mitigate the situation. Rather, you’ll just have to wait for the developers to figure out what went wrong and issue a fix.

On the bright side, the esp-buimet-003 Error Occurred While Connecting to Epic Servers kerfuffle in Fortnite has already attracted the attention of the developers. According to this tweet from Fortnite Status, they are investigating the “issue where some players are unable to log-in on Xbox and PlayStation consoles.” They will provide more information when they have a solution. At time of writing, we have no further info. I recommend keeping an eye on that Twitter account while waiting. It’s quite the downer that this is happening now, when the devs have planned a release of some new content later in the day. Hopefully, they’ll be able to remove the error before then.
