Xbox Series X announces a new important update, after the controversy over the “blackout”
Microsoft understandably wants to leave behind the last disastrous weekend of Xbox Series X , conditioned by continuous blackouts of the servers that have made it very difficult for many users to enjoy their video games.
This not only made it incredibly difficult to access the catalog of free games on Xbox Game Pass ( you can renew your subscription on Amazon ) or online multiplayer, but in many cases it made it impossible to even access previously purchased titles.
Due to the overly aggressive DRM implemented by Microsoft, which came under fire after the latest vicissitudes , many fans have had to give up the possibility of launching their favorite games for the weekend.
The situation turned out to be so serious that Xbox has decided to announce a new update , despite the fact that the patch for the month of May had actually already been unveiled .
As reported by Pure Xbox , although the Redmond house had announced that it had previously fixed the problem related to the servers, several users reported that they continued to experience problems with starting games.
For this reason, Microsoft wanted to officially announce the roll out of a new update on the Xbox Series X and Series S, which should fix these annoying errors once and for all.
It is unclear if the update means that the protection system will be made less effective or if it will simply be a patch that can permanently fix the error for users who still cannot launch their titles.
At the moment, not even an official launch date has been announced, but we know that it should arrive ” in the next few days “: we will of course keep you updated if further news arrives.
We’ve seen significant improvement to the issue that has prevented some users from purchasing and launching games. We expect full mitigation in the coming days with the roll out of a new update.
