I have Windows 10 v1803 (on purpose, to help with the GoW UE fps drop issue)
All my Windows Store games work perfectly online (Forza 7, Horizon 4 etc) but with GoW UE, at the loading screen, I get “Contacting Gears of War services” and it doesn’t proceed.
I have left it on this screen for almost 3 hours now, so I’m confident it’s not even “trying” or it is in a failed loop of some kind.
I can play the game, offline, if I block it from network access or disable my LAN before loading the game, but I’d really like to have a go in Co-Op.
Does anyone else have this problem? Are the servers no longer up or something?
