XDefiant is the latest FPS making a name for itself, but it’s not immune to occasional server problems. Here’s the current XDefiant server status and how you can check for issues.

XDefiant is Ubisoft’s upcoming shooter trying to dethrone Call of Duty as the king of the FPS genre. Players have been hopping into the XDefiant Open Beta for the first time, and getting to grips with the iconic factions and their unique abilities.

While the new title has proved popular so far thanks to its gameplay, as an online multiplayer game XDefiant has been hit by some early connection issues that have disrupted the experience for many players.

Here’s the current XDefiant server status, as well as how you can check for any connectivity problems.

Are the XDefiant servers down?

On June 21, 2023, the developers have confirmed that the XDefiant servers are down, meaning players cannot currently log in.

Many players who have tried to load up XDefiant have been met with the FOXTROT-01 error. With the first day of the Open Beta arriving on June 21, the devs are hard at work trying to fix the issue.

This comes after updates that aimed to solve connection issues and progression bugs.

There is currently no word on how long the servers will be out of action, but the devs are actively working on getting them back online.

Executive Producer at Ubisoft, Mark Rubin, has apologized for the server issues and explained that XDefiant is experiencing a “metric overload.” It seems the vast amount of players who ran to access the Open Beta have left the servers reeling.

The devs ensured players that they will provide updates for the issue as soon as they become available.

How to check XDefiant server status

If you’re running into connection problems, the devs use the official XDefiant Twitter account to post live updates detailing when the servers are down, what the cause is, and how long the game will be offline.

Alternatively, you can check the XDefiant server status by heading over to the Ubisoft Support website. This is where you can find a quick overview of how the servers are holding up at any given time.
