Steam, PlayStation, Fortnite, and Warframe Experiencing Network Outages

Steam, PlayStation, Fortnite, and Warframe are all experiencing network outages, thanks to issues with network services providers.

As reported by IGN and others, many gaming websites are currently down. This includes Steam, PlayStation Network, Fortnite servers, and WarframeDowndetector, a website for reporting website outages, notes that “Reports indicate there may be a widespread outage at Akamai, which may be impacting your service.” Akamai is a content delivery (CDN) and cloud services provider.

CloudFlare is another network services provider that is experiencing outage reports, and at this time of writing Downdetector is reporting outages for AirBnB, Amazon, AT&T, the McDonalds app, US Bank, and more. Due to the mass nature of the websites being affected, it is likely the network services providers will resolve the matter soon.
