Xbox Live has gone down again, for some at least. The Xbox Live Support page notes that “Purchase and Content Usage” is affected right now. This is a big deal, because in some cases, these new Xbox Live issues are preventing people from launching their games to begin with.
The support pages notes that the game Smite, in particular, is affected by these latest Xbox Live issues, but the problems seem to extend beyond that game alone.
Just minutes ago, GameSpot’s repeated attempts to boot Call of Duty: Modern Warfare all failed. We were also unable to load the Xbox Store due to the network issues. As always, your mileage may vary, as Xbox Live is a global network that relies on server infrastructure that exists around the world and depends on a number of different factors for smooth operation.
We are aware that some users are experiencing issues making purchases and redeeming codes. Our teams are currently investigating the issue. You can find updates here or on our status page at https://t.co/dG2dbISiH7.
