WHAT: Server Maintenance (Multiplayer Servers)
EST. DOWNTIME: 1-2 HOURS
GAMES & PLATFORMS:
- Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (Steam / Microsoft Store)
- Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition (Steam / Microsoft Store)
- Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition (Steam / Microsoft Store)
- Routine server maintenance; no player-facing changes.
This coming Tuesday, January 12th, the platform team will be taking the multiplayer servers down for maintenance. This will unfortunately disrupt any matches in progress and prevent the creation of new matches during the downtime, so we recommend wrapping up any games at least 10 minutes before the maintenance window.
During this time, you will still be able to launch the game, but will not be able to access any online features.
The downtime is expected to last anywhere from 1 and 2 hours. We will update this thread with any changes to the schedule as they arise, as well as the all-clear when the maintenance is complete.
Keep the time and date in mind, and thank you for your patience!
