Xbox Live has gone down for hundreds of players around the world in a mysterious outage.
Users began reporting issues on Thursday, claiming that they were unable to play online.
Xbox Live not working – what has happened?
Hundreds of gamers began reporting issues with Xbox Live at around 3.30pm UK time (10.30am NYC time).
The issue appears to affect games globally, including in the UK and USA.
Around 60% of gamers who have complained via online tool Down Detector said they had issues with “online gaming”.
And just over a third reported having problems with logging in to Xbox Live.
Xbox Live offline – is there an official response?
Microsoft hasn’t released a formal statement about the matter.
The official Xbox Live Status page says all services are working correctly, except for “Messages” on Xbox One.
We’ve asked Xbox for comment and will update this story with any response.
Xbox Live broken – what are users saying?
Angry Xbox owners have taken to Twitter to complain about the outage.
One wrote: “Why do I keep getting signed out and it’s not letting me connect to Xbox Live???”
Another asked: “Is Xbox Live down on East Coat? (Upstate NY). My connection is good, wired, restarted 3 times. Not me.”
And one gamer wrote: “Yo why can’t I play with my brother on Xbox Live, fails to join every time.”
