Microsoft 'working to fix' Xbox Live connectivity issues [Update]

Xbox Live outage forces users offline temporarily, issues now fixed

Update: Microsoft has updated its Xbox Live status page to confirm that all Xbox Live services are now back up and running following brief outages on Wednesday.

Original report follows:

Microsoft has confirmed it is working on a fix for issues with Xbox Live connectivity today, November 27.

Xbox users are reporting problems with signing into the service, as well as issues browsing Xbox Live music, video, games and other connected "core" services.


Microsoft has issued a statement via the Xbox Live Status page. "Xbox members, are you having a hard time signing in to Xbox Live? As you read this message, we're moving toward a fix," it said.

In a separate notice, the firm said, "It's come to our attention that our members are having trouble using Bing search to browse for movies, television shows, music, games and apps. We'd like to assure you that we're working to fix this issue as soon as possible."

Xbox One users will also, according to the site, be running into problems "creating new accounts on Xbox Live, managing those accounts, or recovering an account on a different device".

We will update as and when the status changes.
