Update #2: Microsoft is now reporting that the problem with the downloadable version of The Witcher 3 has been fixed, and the game is playable on the Xbox One.


Update #1: Some users are reporting that they are able to play their downloaded copies of The Witcher 3 on Xbox One, but Microsoft has not yet sounded the all clear.

Xbox Support's twitter account is talking with customers who are playing the game, but the Live status page still lists game usage as "limited."


Original Story: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has encountered another problem on the Xbox One. Currently, there are reports that the downloadable version of the title isn't starting up.

Reddit posters have reported problems starting up the downloadable version of the game on the system, and Microsoft has issued its own status alert about the lock out.

We've reached out to a representative for the game, and will update the story if we hear back.

Our Take
The Xbox One version of the game has been particularly hard hit, and with fans still waiting for patches to previous problems, we hope things aren't spiraling out of control.
