Sorry for the connectivity issues that some players have faced since the game launched.
We have just pushed out a Steam fix which should hopefully resolve the issues Steam players are facing.
You’ll need to update your game to version 22.214.171.124 to receive the stability improvements.
Thanks for your patience with us whilst we dealt with this problem!
However, this update only fixed the issue for Steam players.
What do developers have to say?
The connectivity issues of Surgeon Simulator 2 on Xbox are still lingering and annoying players.
Does this include the gamepass version of the game? if not is there an ETA as to when the gamepass version will have this hotfix?
But here’s an update! The developers have acknowledged the issue players on gamepass are facing and have promised to deploy a fix. Also, they want users to follow their social channels and official Discord for more updates on hotfixes.
^We’re aware of the issues on the Game Pass version and are working on them independently. Obviously as this is the Steam forum we won’t be posting about them here, but keep an eye on our social channels and the official discord for updates on other platforms.
We hope the connectivity issues on the Game Pass version of Surgeon Simulator 2 are addressed soon, and players can play the game in peace!
