Lizard Squad, a group of hackers that have been targeting companies with DDOS attacks, have claimed responsibility for Xbox Live being down for some time today. Speaking out via their official twitter page, the group has said “Xbox Live #offline”.

Frustrating Xbox gamers internationally, Lizard Squad have been taking game services offline for  a while now and have said that their most recent attack was a holiday present for Microsoft and claimed that this is just part of a great scheme that will unfold as we get closer to Holidays.

Having in the past attacked the PSN, Destiny and a number of EA games, Lizard Squad are quickly becoming consistent with their use of the infamous DDOS attack which cripples servers temporarily. Since the attack, the service has started to come back online and some users have reported zero loss in functionality and apparently “Sony had it worse.”

    Xbox live never went down for me. I’d go insane, its how I watch all TV. Cut that cable cord 5 years ago and never looked back not even for a second. They claimed it happened last night but I had one Xbox running media from the internet and the other had someone playing master chief collection multiplayer so if it went down it was only the servers “they” connect to which would primarily be European
