Titanfall Launch Marred By Service Errors And Downtime

titanfall downtimeThe age old epigram, Murphy’s Law, states that “Anything that can go wrong — will go wrong”, which can be used to describe Titanfall’s launch on both the Xbox One as well as PC platforms. Apparently, majority of the time on launch day, Microsoft’s “Xbox Live Core Services” (which happens to be their login servers) have been listed as “Limited”. When translated to plain English, it means that there will be many Titanfall launch day purchasers who would have been unable to access the game. Microsoft claims that this is due to their personal servers running into problems, and is no fault of Respawn Entertainment. Needless to say, Respawn Entertainment and EA have also stepped forward to repeat such sentiment. After all, the PC version has different server issues, but basically the fingers would point back at Microsoft’s direction.

There were deleted Tweets from the official Titanfall Twitter account that mentioned such problems like “longer than usual load times” and that “It may take a few attempts” to enter games, while seemingly stuck on a perpetual “Initializing” message. Other technical problems on the PC platform has happened to those who have multi-core PCs, and Respawn claims that they are working hard on a patch to solve this.

Microsoft has since got their servers up and running, where they recommended affected gamers to do the following :-

While the console is on, press and hold the console’s Xbox button for 5 seconds.
The console will power down.
Wait 30 seconds, and then turn your console back on by again pressing the Xbox button.
Note: If your console is in Instant-On power mode, the above steps will shut the console completely off. Instant-On mode, or the ability to turn on your console by saying “Xbox On,” won’t be enabled until you restart the console.
