[Update: Xbox Live Down] Titanfall Xbox Live Connection Issues Hurt Launch Day
Posted on Tuesday, March 11 @ 18:26:55 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
[Original]: Reports from the Titanfall front are landing and many players are having issues connecting and playing the game, ranging from frozen connection screens to a dreaded "Initializing" window that forces users to retry the connection.
If you run into a window that says "Attempting Connection", try changing which Xbox Live data center you connect to. Switching your server can give you a clearer path to the battlefield, depending where you and the server farms are located. Just experiment and see if it helps.
When you're stuck on the "Initializing" screen in Titanfall, no data is actually transferred from your console or computer to the servers, so back up and try again. Don't waste time waiting at this screen.
For everyone else, there's the great outdoors, TV through your new Xbox One, and... I don't know, trying to play tomorrow? Sometimes I wonder if these launch day woes are half-manufactured in order to inflate the sense that millions of players are jumping online to play.
Not that millions of people aren't jumping online to play today, just that a hotly anticipated multiplayer-only game on just two platforms at launch shouldn't struggle this badly. Look for our Titanfall review this week.
