Yesterday afternoon, Xbox Support posted an update to the Xbox Live service status reporting that the service was having issues.Uploaded at 5pm EST, the post read:
Xbox members, are you having trouble connecting to Party Chat, or running into server unavailability issues within Diablo III? We are currently working with our partner to get these issues fixed as quickly as possible. Thanks for being patient during this process. We’ll provide an update to you when we have more information.
The only time I noticed the Xbox Live service go down like this (on the Xbox One) was during the first days of Titanfall. Normally, these service interruptions blow over quickly and are soon forgotten. Xbox Support has earned a great reputation for their work.
