Sony’s PlayStation Network is currently experiencing a global outage. On the PlayStation Network status page, every service except PlayStation Video is marked as experiencing issues.
Tens of thousands of users are reporting issues with PlayStation Network as shown by DownDetector, where Call of Duty, Apex Legends, and Rocket League and many other games are all seeing spikes in user reports as well. We’re seeing reports in a wide variety of languages on Twitter, and PlayStation Japan has officially confirmed the outage as well.
Multiple publishers, including Bethesda and Fortnite maker Epic Games, have posted tweets alerting players about the outage.
PSA: We are aware that PSN is down and players are unable to connect to Rocket League. Please see the PlayStation Network status page for updates.https://t.co/6fsLVVbDcF
