Is Xbox Game Pass Down? Forza and CoD Vanguard having issues

Surely not another big internet outage - on today of all days!

Ah, that moment when you get back from work and start to install Forza Horizon 5 only to be greeted with an error code before installation even begins.


It appears as though there are issues ahoy at Game Pass at the moment and while they are admitting (see below) to problems with Forza and Vanguard, we also can’t get out Minecraft Launcher to update so it seems as though, for some of us at least, the issue could be pretty far-reaching at this stage.

Can’t install Forza Horizon 5

Try as we might we cannot get Forza to even begin to install on a fresh PC and clicking on the tile graphic on the Gamepass app just brings us the image you can see at the top of this page.


On the day when Microsoft’s biggest game of the year so far releases this is bad news. It could just be the weight of internet traffic trying to grab the 100GB file, of course, time will tell, but we will update this page more as we get information. Until then, hang n there kids!
