A lot of people trying to sign in to Xbox Live, Microsoft’s paid online gaming service, to play new game release “Titanfall” are not able to access the game.
Gamers trying to sign in to their accounts are being met with the following error screen:
We first noticed the error a little after 5 p.m. EST when we tried to log on and play “Titanfall.”
Attempts to log back in hours later have prompted the same screen.
Today marks the launch of “Titanfall,” single-person shooter online game from Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment that’s exclusively on the Xbox One.
The game is the first real anticipated title for the new Xbox console. “Titanfall” is being looked at as a major make or break to help the Xbox One make up some ground in the next-gen console war against Sony’s dominating PlayStation 4.
Xbox Live’s Director of Programming Larry Hryb (known better as Major Nelson by gamers for his Xbox Live gamertag) has said the Xbox Live issues are not related to Titanfall.
If you are having issues signing into Xbox Live, we are aware of it and actively working on the issue. This is not a #Titanfall issue
