Xbox Live services are currently “limited” on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, causing issues for those trying to connect to Titanfall and Forza 5 servers.
According to Xbox Live’s status page, affected services include:
- Accessing all game features
- Accessing or retrieving data stored using cloud storage
- Capturing game videos
- Joining other Xbox Live members in online games
- Posting game performance or viewing the performance of other Xbox Live members
- Purchasing content bundles
The Xbox support wrote this update with regards to the outage:
“Are you finding it difficult to connect to Titanfall or Forza 5 on Xbox One? Have you been unable to purchase in-game content bundles for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Fable Trilogy, Twisted Pixel and Halo 4 on Xbox 360? We are aware of the issues and we have our team pushing to get them fixed as quickly as possible. Thanks for staying patient while we work. We’ll have another update in half an hour.”
Our hunch is that the interruption may also be responsible for the delay of the Xbox One’s latest Battlefield 4 update which is, in turn, delaying the launch of Naval Strike on that platform, though it may be a separate issue all together.
It appears that all DICE has had to say on the issue so far is that “Updates are currently rolling out in preparation for Naval Strike.”
Stay tuned for updates.
Titanfall developer Respawn has noted that “PC users should able to connect now. Still waiting on an update for XboxOne users.”
According to another update, “XboxOne players should be able to connect as well. Thank you for your patience!”
