Why is The Finals down?

If it is down, there might be some server issues due to demand or perhaps some server maintenance you need to take into account if you want to play. Due to the always-online nature of The Finals, sometimes the servers may go offline. Whether this is for maintenance, an update, or hotfixes will depend on the issue. Generally, updates don’t require the game to be offline at all.
