I can sign into the account on the XBOX app, store, and XBOX Console companion. Its in the AOE 2 game itself that multiplayer sign-in is not working :confused:

ok… well, I found 2 firmware updates pending for my Surface Studio2 … post install, all good.

I am facing same issue however I do not have any updates pending
