Same happened to me. Unlocked 2 Epic Mickey 2 achievements on 8/9/19 and they show up as unlocking 7 hours later on the 8/10/19. Hope this will be corrected as it broke my streak. 😞😞😞

I tweeted @trueachievements but I rarely get an answer from that account.

It’s an issue on Microsoft’s end. Just keep earning your achievements daily and when the devs correct the incorrect timestamps on the site your streak will return to normal. A fix can’t be put in place until the issue stops happening on Microsoft’s end though.

Personally I don't care about the timestamps and my streaks that may get broken but I thought the problem was solved so I just wanted to inform the TA-people.

I thought this was supposedly fixed, looks like the problem is back. Unlocked an achievement tomorrow at 5am.

I don't know how TA scanners/servers works, but this time it's probably their fault.

Timestamps are absolutely fine on xbox (console/app)

I unlocked an achievement yesterday around 7 PM. I was online, connected to Live, and on my Xbox 360.

I just had TA scan my account at about 12:30 (half past midnight), and it says I earned the achievement today at 1:51 AM... that time has not arrived yet, and won't for a little over another hour.

My streak is broken unless this gets fixed. (Yes, I know I should have scanned earlier, but I was busy. Busy happens.)

Looking at my achievements on my console, it shows yesterday's date on it. I've also checked the Xbox Live website and it says I got it 6 hours ago. so this would seem to be a problem with TA, not Xbox Live.

so how do we fix the incorrect times? and get our streaks fixed to "ongoing"?

I really don't want to have to use the "rebuild my streaks" button... I always worry about it breaking more than it fixes... like if I earn one close to midnight, but the scanner forgets that it was earned during (or not during) daylight savings, and throws it into the next (or previous) day.

You don't. The only thing you can do is keep unlocking an achievement every day and wait for Microsoft and TA to fix it, like last time.

Whenever this does get fixed, the glitched achievement should end up back on the correct day. As long as you have continued the streak from that point, the two streaks should end up merged into one larger streak. That's how it worked for me at least.
