Last weekend was marked by many connectivity issues on the Xbox Live service, but Microsoft has promised that an update will arrive soon to fix all the bugs that prevent players from enjoying their favorite titles.
It’s been a few days now that Xbox gamers have been dealing with disruptions on Microsoft’s services. A huge Xbox Live outage, for example, prevented players from launch games on the cloud, play games in digital versions or even make purchases on the store.
The official Xbox Support page was providing updates regularly throughout the weekend. Although Microsoft has announced that most issues have been resolved, some players have continue to report issues playing digital and cloud games.

Microsoft Will Fix Xbox Login Bugs Soon
Fortunately, after several days of repeated outages, Microsoft announced on social media that services were mostly restored, and promised an update in the next few days which should fix all the bugs.
” We saw a significant improvement in the issue that prevented some users from buying and launching games “Xbox Support assured users in a recent tweet. ” We expect full mitigation in the next few days with the rollout of a new update “.
These outages mostly helped alleviate a major problem with Xboxes. Indeed, some players wondered whyonline connectivity was necessary to launch video games in digital versionswhereas these are however downloaded on the hard disk.
The Xbox Series S was therefore the most affected by these outages, since it is a 100% digital console that does not have a disc drive. So the owners simply couldn’t play at all. Microsoft also wants to go further than the Xbox Series S with a Chromecast-style key to broadcast games on TV. It is hoped that these concerns will prompt Microsoft to make changes to the way digital games work on Xbox.
