Outriders has been one of the biggest launches of the year so far and it has quickly became the next big thing in the gaming industry. Developed by People Can Fly, the game is already being widely acclaimed by fans and critics alike.
We have seen a number of games facing issues with their multiplayer at launch or whenever there is a major update. One of the most recent examples would be none other than Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Outriders is no exception.
The game has been having server issues since its launch, and it has continued till today as well. Players are not able to access the game and play online, as they are getting the can’t connect to Outriders servers error. Here’s what the developers had to say about the issue.
We’re aware of current server instability and are looking into it. We will provide an update here as soon as we can.
When will servers be back?
As of now, we are not aware as to when servers be back. The developers issued another update a few minutes ago and this is what they had to say.
We’re working hard on this matter and hope to have news soon. We will let you know as soon as we can, but we are unlikely to have news in the next 10-20 minutes, so this is likely a good time to grab a drink and a snack & take your dog/hyena-looking-cow-thing for a quick walk.
It seems like it will be a while before the servers are fixed. You can try restarting your router and restarting the game to check if the error is resolved, since that has worked for a few players. However, as things stand, you need to wait a bit to play the game again.
