If you’ve been trying to play online Xbox One games today, such as the newly-released Titanfall, you might be having a little trouble. Xbox Live is experiencing widespread difficulties on the Xbox One, and Microsoft issued a service alert saying that it is in a “limited” state.
In this limited state, many users are unable to log in. All other features are listed as “up and running,” but really, if you can’t log in, that doesn’t do you much good.
An obvious culprit would be the sheer number of people who flooded the servers to play Titanfall, but Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb posted a Tweet denying that Titanfall is to blame.
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

He may be right, but this still puts a damper on Titanfall’s launch day. It’s hard to imagine a worse time for Xbox Live to break. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. We can only hope they fix the problem soon.
