An Xbox Live Down outage is affecting users Worldwide. Replies on our tweet suggest an outage from Europe to America and Australia.
Even the Xbox Live Server Status support website is struggling to handle the influx of traffic from users checking when they’ll be back up. It states:
Xbox Live Core Services
3/1/2018, 10:49:50 PM
Signing in; creating, managing, or recovering an account; search
Affected: Xbox One, Xbox 360, Xbox on other devices and Xbox on Windows 10
This is a particularly big problem as many users can’t even sign in. This means digital games won’t launch even to play offline.
When will the Xbox Live servers be back up
They were officially reported down nearly 15 minutes ago. Microsoft are aware there’s an issue and their support team have tweeted:
There’s currently a status alert & the right teams are working to fix. Thanks for your patience!
UPDATE 12:36AM, 2nd March: Servers appear to be back online for most with a few reports of still being down. Try restarting your Xbox console and trying again.
Get notified as soon as they are back up by following us on Twitter here (remember to turn on notifications).
