Despite what naysayers might say, Minecraft is a quality game filled with so much creativity that it spawned a number of copycats, some of which are quality like Dragon Quest Builders, but as it stands, the game is still king thanks to new updates that add new content.

Sadly, because the game is always online, many players have had issues just trying to log in and play, affecting those on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and other systems.

How to Fix Network Error on Minecraft: Resolve Connection Issues on PS4, Xbox One, and PC

While not an issue that always happens, the fact that Minecraft players have asked for help with these connection issues shows that this is, at the least, a recurring issue that will happen once in a blue moon.

That’s not a good thing since, ideally, we would like Minecraft to boot up and play well every time, so here are a few ways to recover from this annoying issue, though, spoiler alert, the biggest solution is probably waiting for the servers to get fixed.

First, make sure that your copy of Minecraft, regardless if it’s on PS4, Xbox One, or PC, has been updated with the latest patch since there have been instances where the game wouldn’t start unless it got the most recent update.

It’s an issue that has affected a number of online-only games so we wouldn’t be surprised if this is one of the reasons why Minecraft hasn’t been able to connect.

Another thing you can do is to check your internet connection, maybe restart the router to see if this will help players reconnect to Minecraft since, one again, this is a game that’s always online.


Now, if that doesn’t work, players are better off just waiting for the Minecraft servers to be up, which is disappointing but is the most realistic option.

Minecraft is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.
