Microsoft’s Xbox Support Twitter account has not mentioned anything in regards to the outage though the account has retweeted recent posts from another Twitter account ‘Outriders’ in regards to the server issues. However, the Xbox status page says there is an outage related to Outriders and posted this message:
“You may not be able to sign-in to your Xbox profile, maybe disconnected while signed in, or have other related problems. Features that require sign-in like most games, apps, and social activity won’t be available.”
Though this is not the first time Microsoft faced such issues as outages have occurred before in previous months.
