Update (August 24): Maintenance for patch 1.6.0 for The Cycle: Frontier is due to take place today at 1 AM PT/10 AM CEST/4 AM ET for roughly 2 hours. This fairly major update fixes a few issues while preparing the game for its second season next month. Like all maintenance periods, this one could go on longer than intended if issues occur while implementing the changes. Use the methods outlined in this guide to keep track of whether The Cycle: Frontier’s servers are live or not.
Like any other online multiplayer game, The Cycle: Frontier experiences the occasional downtime during which players cannot access the game’s servers. Often these periods are scheduled and announced in advance, though sometimes there can also be unforeseen outages. If you are having difficulty accessing The Cycle: Frontier, you might want to check the game’s server status to determine if the issue is on your side or The Cycle’s. Luckily, this is as easy as clicking a single link.
Where to check the server status of The Cycle: Frontier
To check if The Cycle: Frontier is currently offline, simply head to the official Server Status page which has up-to-date information on the game’s server status. However, while the page is your best bet to find out if there is a service outage, the reason and expected duration of the outage are not mentioned there. To get a better idea of why The Cycle: Frontier is currently down and when it might be accessible again, you should head to the official Discord. Updates are posted there regularly.
During the closed beta period, The Cycle: Frontier experienced occasional downtime for server upgrades and maintenance. When the game officially launches, these pauses should be far less frequent. Still, if you are having issues connecting to The Cycle: Frontier at any point, the server status page should be your first stop.
