Ghost Recon Breakpoint is an always-online game across all platforms. Indeed, single-player activities require a persistent internet connection even if you don’t want to play co-op or PvP multiplayer. Likewise, if something happens on Ubisoft’s side of things, you won’t be able to play. So, are Ghost Recon Breakpoint servers down? Here’s how to check the game’s server status.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint: Are the Servers Down? How to Check Server Status

If you can’t play Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the first thing you’ll want to do is check the game’s current server status. You can do so in a few different ways:

I’ve found that Down Detector is the best and quickest way to find out if the Breakpoint servers are experiencing issues. You can see if there are any spikes when you’re trying to play. If there are, that means issues have been reported. The Ubisoft Support webpage is another good source, though I’ve found that it doesn’t always update in real-time. Neither the official Breakpoint Twitter or Ghost Recon Twitter are helpful for checking server status since it appears neither has been updated in some time.

Other Troubleshooting Options to Try (Just in Case)

Since you can’t do anything about the Breakpoint servers being down, the best advice is to simply wait things out. However, it’s always possible you aren’t affected by maintenance or other downtime. Try these general troubleshooting tactics while you wait to make sure the issues are on your end.

  • Check your internet connection.
  • Restart your router.
  • Restart the game.
  • Restart your device.
  • Make sure your Firewall and anti-virus settings aren’t causing conflicts.
  • Use a wired, ethernet connection instead of Wi-Fi.

That’s how to know whether the Ghost Recon Breakpoint servers are down and how to check server status. This issue can happen on any platform, whether you’re playing on PC, PS5, or Xbox. Typically, these issues clear up relatively quickly and only impact a small group of players. Regardless, if you’re affected, it’s no fun. While there’s usually no way to get past this problem, at least it’s only temporary. Check out our other GRB guides here.
