Xbox players see an increase in disconnections.
Xbox One players getting stuck into PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds over the weekend are reportedly having issues staying online since the battle royale’s Update 8 went live earlier in the week.
The official Twitter support account for PUBG acknowledged the issue via a brief tweet on Friday, but there’s been no update since then and players across the developer’s social media channels are still reporting difficulties.
“Xbox Players: We are investigating an issue which is causing some players to receive a “Lost Connection to Host” error,” says the latest tweet on the developer’s Twitter account at the time of writing. “We’re actively working towards a hotfix and will provide an update once the details have been finalized.”

The “Lost Connection to Host” error comes just after Xbox’s Update 8 rolled out a number of new features, including a new progression system called Weapon Mastery, Controller Preset Type C, the new auto-equip feature, plus loot rebalancing on the Erangel and Vikendi maps.
PUBG Corp announced earlier this week that it’s branching out into narrative titles with its new studio, Striking Distance. Headed up by former Visceral and Sledgehammer Games’ Glen Schofield, the studio will “create an original narrative experience within the PUBG universe”.
