But don’t worry, Microsoft is trying to fix it. Shame, that Xbox One version of the game was supposed to be the main thing, right? The premier platform. Instead, it does’t look too great and reports keep coming in of bugs making it unplayable. Now, Xbox Live is causing issues, making launching or installing the game impossible.
If you head on over to the Xbox Live Status page, you can see that they are aware of the issue:
Are you unable to launch or install The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? We’re working to address this ASAP! Thanks for staying patient. We’ll fill you in as soon as we know more.
No explanation of what’s going on, although at least we know that they’re working to fix it. So, if you’re getting Error Code 0x87de2726, you aren’t alone – Geralt is fighting the good fight to return to Xbox One and will hopefully be available again soon. It seems to be affecting digitally-purchased copies of the game.
Unfortunately, this is the future. Even if you bought the game, you might not be able to play it when you want. It’s frustrating and infuriating and drives me ballistic, but there isn’t much that we can do besides moan. The always online gaming experience is here to stay, complete with all the issues it brings. Now, if you had bought the game through GoG.com, you might not have these issues, but you wouldn’t have the benefits that other platforms and distribution systems give, either.
