Outriders internet connection error: Why you can’t sign in on Xbox and PC servers
Many Outriders fans are unable to play the game tonight, and it looks like issues are set to continue over the coming hours.
If you’re experiencing error messages referencing “Outriders internet connection error”, this is down to technical problems and not connected to a platform outage.
It probably has nothing to do with your own connection, or PC, Xbox, or PlayStation console setup.
The latest news from Square Enix is that they are currently investigating an issue that is affecting the availability of Core Game Components.
The good news is that the Outriders team are working to fix this as soon as possible, but that doesn’t mean things will be returning to normal just yet.
Over on Twitter, Square Enix confirmed that they were having to turn off Outriders servers to try and fix the current issues, telling gamers:
“Server issues are still being investigated! We deeply apologize that coming back online is taking longer than expected – we are trying our best to ensure that we can safeguard against such issues in future and are therefore looking into root causes, not just symptoms.
This was followed by another message, revealing: “We are about to do the mother of all turn-it-off-and-on-again.
“This will take all servers offline for a short duration. The complete downage will allow us to rebuild and recover server infrastructure in order to bring it back into a healthy and stable state.”
And following this drastic action, there still seems to be problems with gamers connecting to the Outriders servers.
The latest update from the team within the last hour reads: “We are running checks on the restored infrastructure now to ensure it is operating as intended.
“While we don’t yet have a guaranteed fix or an ETA we are working on getting you back online asap. Please stay tuned!”
