Some players are unable to launch digital titles due to an Xbox outage

This most recent string of issues follows a massive outage spanning several hours on Friday night and into Saturday morning. Some players were unable to start Cloud Gaming sessions, launch digital games, make purchases, or even access streaming apps including Netflix and Disney Plus.

Some Xbox Live members are unable to start cloud games, play digital games, or make purchases from its shop. The outage began about 4 p.m. ET, according to Xbox’s status page, and the firm is presently working on a remedy. “We are aware that some customers are unable to purchase and launch games or begin Cloud Gaming sessions,” said Xbox Support in a tweet. “Our teams are looking into it.” Please check back here and on our status page for any changes.

Highlights

  • Although Xbox seemed to resolve these problems, it looks like issues with its store, digital titles, and Cloud Gaming have started to resurface. As my colleague Tom Warren notes, if you’re affected by the outage, you should still be able to play games offline when you have your Xbox set as your “home” console. Xbox Support also says rebooting your Xbox console might help.
