Reports have been steadily rising of issues with Minecraft servers being down today across platforms.
While the overall number of reports remains relatively low, there are still hundreds of players finding it difficult to access Minecraft Realms tonight.
A message from Mojang support confirms that there are problems with Minecraft online features shutting down.
The most recent report from the support team reads: “Minecraft Realms on Bedrock: Some players may not be able to log in to their Realm or a friend’s Realm.
“We are investigating the issue. Thank you for your patience.”
It’s unclear what has caused tonight’s temporary outage, or how long it might last across platforms.
The good news is that there hasn’t been a huge spike in players having problems, meaning this might be a localised issue.
According to an outage map, most players facing issues tonight are from the United States and the UK.
No ETA has been provided for when Minecraft Realms servers will return to normal.
