It looks like Sony Interactive Entertainment has encountered some issues after releasing today’s update on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PS App and PS Remote Play. Hundreds of users have reported online games being unavailable including Destiny 2, FIFA, The Elder Scrolls Online, Street Fighter V, and Grand Theft Auto Online.
On the website, tracking the online status of websites and services DownDetector over 800 users have reported that the PlayStation Network is down. Many people cannot play the games listed above. Overwatch, Call of Duty, Final Fantasy XIV, Battlefield and other network projects are also mentioned. Additionally, some players have found that their console does not recognize an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
Especially on social media, gamers are reporting that they can still access the online menu of some games like FIFA 22. That means the service is still running at this time. However, users cannot play an online match that requires a PlayStation Plus subscription.
At the time of writing the message PlayStation support account Twitter did not comment on the problem with the PlayStation Network.
