A little over four hours after initial issues shut down the servers, People Can Fly managed to get most regions back up and running, with the exception of the US.
Of course, shortly thereafter, the team managed to the US server back up and running again as well. They also stated they will “continue to monitor the overall situation.” Hopefully, the game won’t have any major problems after this. You can see the original story below.
If you’ve been experiencing issues connecting to or staying connected to an Outriders game, you’re not alone. This is a major problem, requiring a major outage in order to fix. Developer People Can Fly has acknowledged Outriders is having servers issues, and since the game requires an online connection in all modes, solo players can’t join right now. The studio has asked players to bear with it and not judge the game because of these “teething troubles.”
In the above tweet, People Can Fly stated that some players would be able to get online, but it wasn’t “guaranteed” yet. As of now, the issues are still being addressed. The game’s official status page lists a “major outage” affecting the game’s core components. Later on, the studio said it was intentionally shutting all servers off for a short period to try a resolve the problems properly.
In the most recent tweet, People Can Fly studio head Sebastian Wojciechowski apologized for the ongoing issues, saying they were “trying to fix it ASAP” in conjunction with Square Enix. He went on to add, “As developers who’ve been working super hard for the last 5 years to make this game awesome, we really hope that you will judge the game rather than those teething troubles related to server issues. It is frustrating for you and it is frustrating for us. We really appreciate your massive interest in Outriders and we hope to see you all on Enoch shortly.”
This comes a day after the game’s initial launch, and several hours after the initial reports of players getting stuck at the login screen and broken cross-play.
