This method works for both Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X. After you restart the console, try launching the game again.

Log out and log back in

If a hard reboot doesn’t solve the problem, then the problem may be in your credential validation. The easiest way to fix this is to sign out of Xbox Live and sign back in.

  1. Option System.
  1. Option Update.
