Microsoft clearing its own Horde mode.
Following such games like Diablo III and World of Warcraft Classic, Gears 5 is facing server issues aplenty during its launch week.
Players who got Early Access privileges since Friday GMT+8 time have been facing these problems be it in the US or in Southeast Asia. The Coalition did release an update recently and would be monitoring the situation. Xbox Live itself is still working on amending this.
“Our engineers and developers are actively continuing to work to resolve the issue causing some members to have problems signing in to Xbox Live. Stay tuned, and thanks for your patience.”
Our teams are aware & currently investigating errors when attempting to sign in. We'll update here & on our status page: https://t.co/PzAdjUFMJj when we have more info to share.

If you want to find out if Xbox Live is stable or still in a limited capacity, check out the official status page here. Hopefully this gets fixed in the next few days, because having to drop out mid-Horde mode and Escape mode would totally suck.
