Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) players cannot log into the popular Battle Royale game. Issues were first reported on Wednesday, December 29th. Developer Krafton has confirmed that some users have encountered a “login failed” error and is working on fixing the issue. However, the problem could only affect a subset of BGMI users and Krafton has yet to uncover the cause of the problem or confirm that the login error has been resolved.
Krafton stated in a post on the game’s website that since 9:00 p.m. Wednesday, some players have been experiencing some login issues. According to reports, users saw an error message that said, “Server authentication failure. Login failed. “Users also commented on the latest post on the BGMI Facebook page with screenshots of the failed game login. The problem appears to affect users at the time of this writing, based on the comments on Facebook post.
However, the problem doesn’t seem to affect all users as Gadgets 360 was able to log into the game and start a game with other users. Krafton’s post was updated later Thursday at 12:05 p.m. to let users know that Krafton is still investigating the login issue. “We’re always trying to find the source of the problem, but we take our time. We will get in touch with you as soon as the cause has been found or remedied, ”said the publisher.
BGMI players weren’t the only ones hit by downtime as the popular battle royale game Fortnite went down Wednesday night. The game was unavailable from around 8:30 p.m. EST and players were unable to open the game due to unresponsive servers. Developer Epic Games finally announced that the game will be back online today at 5:20 am.
