Split screen is a feature that allows two players to play on the same console, using the same screen divided into two parts. This feature is handy for those who want to play with their friends or family members without having to buy another console or TV. Split screen was introduced in Fortnite in December 2019 and is available across all console devices.

Why split screen is not working in Fortnite?

In the v27.10 update, Fortnite has temporarily disabled the split screen functionality due to an issue. The issue was related to the 'Ready Up' and 'Keep Playing Together' buttons, which are used to start a new match or continue playing with the same partner. These buttons were not working properly for some players, causing them to get stuck in the lobby or lose their partners.

Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, has acknowledged the issue and said they are investigating it. They have also said that they will provide an update when the split screen functionality has been re-enabled.

As a result, many players are disappointed over the removal of the split screen feature, as they were looking forward to playing with their friends or family members during the holidays.

There is no official confirmation on when the split screen feature will be back in Fortnite. However, it is possible that it might return in the next update, which is expected to be released next week. Until then, you will have to wait patiently or find other ways to enjoy the game with your friends.
