If you a fix for the Fortnite “An Unexpected Error Has Occurred” Xbox issue that happens while signing into your account, we’ve got you covered. This problem crops up every so often, because Microsoft just can’t seem to repair it completely. Fortunately, there are a few things you can try to work around the error, and we’ll be covering them in this guide. So, without further ado, let’s dive straight in.
An Unexpected Error has Occurred While Signing in to Your Account for Xbox Live Fortnite Fix
There are several different fixes for the Fortnite “An Unexpected Error has Occurred While Signing in to Your Account for Xbox Live” issue. One solution that seems to work really well and often is to load the game up until you get to the “press A to start” part. Press A, and then you should run into the error. Do not leave this loading screen. Instead, press and hold the Home button (aka the Xbox logo in the top center). Select the option to restart the console, and when the process is done, you should be able to load into Fortnite normally. We owe this system to Reddit user Limitless6989, so all props to them.
That should be enough to fix the “An Unexpected Error has Occurred While Signing in to Your Account for Xbox Live” Fortnite issue. Other than that, you can try and do some of the usual things that any support desk employee is going to ask you to do. You can restart the game and/or the console, and you should probably check whether your internet connection is up and running. If everything else fails, you can power-cycle both your router and your console. However, I strongly recommend that you try the method Limitless6989 lays out before anything else. It’s really the least hassle, and as we’ve already said, it seems to work for most people that try it.
