Xbox Live is down again. Here’s the latest on the outage

Xbox Live went offline for many users on Friday afternoon, just as gamers were gearing up to play over the Labor Day long weekend.

Xbox users began to complain that they couldn’t log into Xbox Live around 12 p.m. PT on Friday, according to DownDetector.

“We’re aware that some users are unable to sign in currently & our teams are looking into it now,” Xbox’s support account tweeted. “We’ll update when we have more info to share. Thanks for all the reports!”

According to Xbox Live’s status page, core services were affected by the outage and users were having issues signing in, and creating, managing, or recovering their account.

“Our engineers and developers are actively continuing to work to resolve the issue causing some members to have problems signing in to Xbox Live,” Microsoft wrote on the status page. “Stay tuned, and thanks for your patience.”

It’s been a rough week for Xbox Live: the service went down for a few hours on Wednesday. That outage also impacted users trying to log in, keeping people from playing their favorite games or using apps like Plex and Spotify. The service also went down for several hours in June.

We’ve reached out to Microsoft for additional details on the outage and will update this story if we hear back from them.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated with the latest information.
