Any update on it being fixed ? Or a way to fix it

Okay so the only work around ive found so far is just creating a new account so I guess it has something to do with my account but now I don’t have my dlc

Same problem occurring for me. Any update on when a fix is likely?

I’m afraid i don’t have that information :frowning:

Here is a workaround to resolve the issue. If you delete your saved data the game will start from a fresh state and no longer crashes when entering Ranked. I recommend taking a video of your settings first so that you can look at the video to copy your settings back.

Here are the Steps:

  1. Find the “Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition” on the Xbox Home Screen.
  2. Press the Menu Button for More Options
  3. Select “Manage game and add-ons”
  4. Select “Saved data”
  5. Select “DELETE ALL”
  6. Confirm “DELETE ALL”
  7. Launch “Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition”
  8. Press “CANCEL” and then “STOP SYNCING”
  9. Now the game will start as if you’re playing it for the first time with all default settings and you can launch Ranked again.

This is a duplicate of Can no longer play Multiplayer on Xbox, game crashes when opening Ranked - Age of Empires II: DE / II - Report a Bug - Age of Empires Forum.

I made a new account and it lets me play now ,but it won’t let me use the dlc I bought

I recommend you to contact support:

So Xbox just had an update and now it’s working so thanks to whoever was working on it
