Xbox Live service alert affects Grand Theft Auto V and CoD: Ghosts [update: all clear]

Posted on March 25, 2014 AT 04:36am

Update: The service alert has now been cleared and everything should be working as normal in both Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Original Story: Microsoft has issued an Xbox Live service alert that affects Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty: Ghosts on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The issues are affecting players who are trying to join online games and are “posting game performance or viewing the performance of other Xbox Live members.”

“Hey there, gamers! Are you experiencing issues while playing Grand Theft Auto V, or Call of Duty: Ghosts? This is due to a scheduled maintenance taking place at this time,” Microsoft wrote on the service page. “Thanks for being patient while we work. We’ll let you know as soon as the maintenance is complete!”

We will update this page once the alert has been cleared.
