As the live event is happening, PSN, Xbox Live, and Epic Games Store are having issues. Epic has issued the following statement regarding the outage that their store is facing right now.

We are aware that some folks are unable to login to the Epic Games launcher and are working on getting the service back to normal. As a work around, you can elect to skip login to access games that don’t require you to be online.
