The lights are on
Update: The server issues have been resolved and the game is now available for purchase on Xbox Live Arcade. 5th Cell creative director Jeremiah Slaczka issued the following statement:
We have worked with Microsoft to diagnose and resolve the server issue surrounding Hybrid. Our entire team appreciates the overwhelming response of fans logging in on day-1 and for bearing with us during this short downtime. We expect a smooth gameplay experience from here on out.
Original Story: Hybrid, the new cover-based online shooter from developer 5th Cell, ran into server issues today during the game's launch. The issues have caused Microsoft to remove the game temporarily from the Xbox Live Arcade store.
"We have identified a problem and are in the process of finding a solution," a studio representative said in a statement to Game Informer. "We will make the game available as soon as we can and apologize for the inconvenience.”
Hybrid is one of five titles that are part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion.
I feel bad for the people that actually bought it.
Now that's just unfortunate.
No surprise, every game with an interesting multiplayer or onlne will have server issues when games get launched. Maybe some multiplayer or online games didn't have launch server issues.
I was wondering why I couldn't download a trial.
Played 1 game before servers went down. Shame cause its really good. Hoping they resolve it soon.
I need to pick this game up when it gets back on the marketplace. Been wanting to try it and I've got some extra points lying around.
Unfortunate to hear, game looks promising. Hopefully they will have it up and running again soon! I'd like to play the trial for it
Hey Jim are you guys doing a review of hybrid?
speaking of which, is there a review for this out? Or is that not happening?
Now I'm not so certain that I will actually buy this game... Yeah. I'm holding off on this one. Persona 4 Arena just came out, and I've got Last Story and Transformers:FoC to pick-up before the end of the month; I don't need to take my chances on a horse that injured itself getting out of the gate.
Well, hopefully that will be completely fixed soon...
This looks like it could be good. Too bad I don't have a 360...
interesting game see maybe game kind ps3 or xobx 360
well, that sucks. but it's good that it's fixed now! let the blasting of faces COMMENCE!
They resolved that pretty fast. Isn't 5th Cell the people that make Scribblenauts?
