Wish I hadn't started this game. Already completed FH2 on XB1. At the time this thread said the servers were up but now they appear to be back down again and not coming back. :(

Just keep bothering support. The servers have gone down before and after a long time they were bothered enough to fix them. They just don't seem to think it's a priority if people don't complain.

Finally sounds like maybe we're making some progress? Definitely make a ticket though if you haven't.

But three days ago I was out of town and got this response:

"Thank you for reporting this issue.

We are currently looking into this and your ticket will be added to our investigation.

I am marking this ticket "On Hold" and we will send out an announcement to the Community when we have a resolution.

Thank you for your patience.


TheSpartacat"


That actually sounds encouraging. Much better than before when they said that everything was running fine, which it definitely was not, given all the people reporting it's been down since May. So I guess they are "working on it" potentially. Thank goodness.

Last time I got a reply like this they shut down the smartglass app forever. roll

Hopefully they don't give up on support for multiplayer on the Xbox 360.
Something bad may be going on, some people reported that they are replying they don't support older titles, the default response for Horizon 2 and older, for Forza 6. And Forza 6 is not end of life yet.
Turn 10 is the worst developer ever.

When did you submit yours? They're very slow at responding.

Uh, so servers are still down. I got a post in my support ticket asking if I was experiencing this issue, and then no reply when I said I was. A few days ago. It still doesn't work but it sounds like they're still monitoring it.

But...now the game has been relisted again? If I pull it up in a different browser it's listed as $29.99. But the xbox one version is still down. Weird.

I noticed someone recently unlocking a few online achievements just yesterday. I tried the servers just now but they're still down. Maybe they were up only long enough for this guy to pop these chievos?

I got a response a couple of days ago from my complaint that was a month old. It was a list of things to check on my network (like open ports, etc)... they are still not realizing/admitting that the problem is on their end. I replied that it wasn't just me that couldn't connect, but that nobody could. Will see what the response is (if I get one at all).

Have you tried different times of the day?

I remember when I was doing the Rival races the game failing often. It was usually working at night for me.

It's good to play for a while on the map and check if the online menu appear after some minutes.
A good indicator is the Radar. If it displays the X button to check leaderboards when you pass on it then the online is also available.

I've been constantly trying to connect at all different times of day but I can't connect. So I have a feeling that person cheated? But in case the servers did open up for them I wouldn't want to report them. I do know that at times when fixed they've still been shaky. That said, I've checked so much, I really don't feel like they have been up. There is absolutely nothing wrong with my connection I know that.

This is what I got. I'm not going to stop bugging them until they actually fix their dumb servers. It's definitely heartening hearing other people are as well. If enough keep it up, at some point they'll have to do something to get rid of all those tickets (I am NOT advocating like, making accounts or making a ton of tickets; that would be stupid and discount everyone else; don't do that. If you have an account, and you can't connect, make your ticket and don't give up asking them to fix it).

It's awfully unprofessional they can't diagnose their own servers being down. Can't they see that their player population is either zero or extremely low since the servers went down? Like come on. They have to know it's on their end. SOMETHING is wrong. It's not us.

Anyway, I simply responded that I have already done all of those things AND I can play any other xbox game just fine. I tested out Forza Horizon and Forza Motorsport 3 and 4 and they all worked just fine. Even rivals. And then I just simply restated the request that they fix the servers.

Now we wait yet again. I don't know why Forza games struggle with server issues so much. Seriously.

I don't know but I'm not taking any chances. Grinding my butt off to do rivals right now. I figure if things break really badly in the future rivals would be a really low priority fix. Boy that's a long grind. I'm only 1/20 of the way there. Although I've definitely wasted a bit too much time trying to grind events to get 5000 credits to farm. Clearly I'm not good enough for can't find races I'm good at.

Someone let me know if they want to get the "Freeroaming buddies" chievo.
