Numerous Microsoft services are experiencing problems early on Wednesday, with thousands of people complaining about the issues on social media.

According to Downdetector, Xbox Live, Microsoft Store, Outlook.com, Microsoft 365, Azure, Teams, and several popular games, including Minecraft and Destiny, have been experiencing outages in the past 24 hours. (Editor's note: Downdetector is owned by Mashable's parent company, Ziff Davis).

User reports range from intermittent outages to entire systems being completely unavailable. "The whole xbox live system is down," said one user. "Not even the the service status page is working atm."

The Microsoft 365 status page indicates that users may be unable to access multiple Microsoft services, including Teams, Online, Outlook, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Microsoft Graph, Power BI, Microsoft 365 admin portal, Microsoft Intune, and Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps, Identity and Endpoint.

Microsoft 365 Status account on Twitter said it's "investigating issues impacting multiple Microsoft 365 services."

In a subsequent tweet, the account wrote Microsoft has" identified a potential networking issue and are reviewing telemetry to determine the next troubleshooting steps." And just minutes ago at writing time, Microsoft 365 Status' account said it has "rolled back a network change" that may be the culprit behind the outage.

Downdetector's graphs indicate that things are getting better over at Microsoft, though some users are still complaining about the outage.

It's worth mentioning that Microsoft announced a company-wide round of layoffs, in which it plans to fire 10,000 employees. The layoffs have begun last week and will continue throughout March.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
