Microsoft is providing the most up-to-date information on the Xbox console outage today, with Xbox Live being momentarily unavailable. Microsoft has confirmed a major Xbox Live outage that will affect gamers in the United Kingdom on June 13.

Xbox Live Down – Unable to Purchase or Launch Games

It’s aggravating when your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One system has issues playing games. A game may, for example, freeze, quit unexpectedly, or have difficulty starting. Before you start solving any of these problems, check to see if there are any known issues that are affecting your gameplay.


  • Issues with connecting to the Xbox Network began around 8:30 pm BST, according to users, and the same problems persist.
  • The good news is that Microsoft has been informed of the issues and is working to resolve them as quickly as possible.

Microsoft’s most recent Xbox Live Server Status updates can be found below:

  • Microsoft has acknowledged that numerous key online services for Xbox One and Xbox Series X customers are currently unavailable. This includes issues with accessing games purchased through the Xbox Store as well as Cloud Gaming issues.
  • It is unknown what triggered today’s Xbox Live server outage or how long it will remain across all affected systems. Because Microsoft is aware of the issues, it is likely that they will be resolved before the end of the day.

“You may have problems playing your digital games right now.” – Core Online Xbox Services Message on the Support Page

“You may have trouble starting cloud games or be unexpectedly disconnected from a game after it begins. We Are Working On A Fix.” – Cloud Gaming Services Message on the Support Page

“We’re aware that some users may not be able to sign in or launch games at the moment. Please stay tuned for updates here, or check our status page.” – 8:45 pm BST: Microsoft Support Page Message.

Microsoft is Working on a Solution Now

The good news is that Microsoft has been made aware of the problem and is working on a solution. Microsoft is usually able to handle Xbox Live service outages quickly, so hopefully, fans won’t have to wait long.

However, there have been times in the past when Xbox Live issues have been prolonged, such as the problems in May, so hopefully, this won’t happen again and the issues are repaired quickly.

It is doubtful that this issue will take longer than planned, so sit back and wait for a Microsoft update. We’ll keep this thread refreshed, and if issues persist, we’ll find solutions and share them here as well.
