Update: After Being Down, Xbox Live Is Back Up And Running

Update 1:30pm:  Everything should be back to normal. Xbox Support has confirmed that things are back up and running. Hopefully, this continues.


Original Story: Xbox Live is having some trouble this morning, and by that we mean it's having sign-in issues and letting people access previously purchased content. This comes after recent issues with users experiencing a black screen a few days ago.

Microsoft has confirmed via Twitter it's aware of the issues and is working on a fix.

Its service status is also listed as limited on Xbox's official website

We'll let you know when it's back and running, but this isn't great timing considering the Anthem open demo just went live.

Having issues every now and then is unavoidable, but Xbox Live has had its share of struggles. Editor Brian Shea even wrote an opinion on its functionality and game errors back in 2017.
