What you need to know
- Xbox Achievements weren't unlocking for many gamers yesterday.
- The situation now appears to have been resolved.
- Xbox's Brad Rossetti confirmed that it had been fixed.
- The issue apparently lasted around 30 hours.
Yesterday, and a few hours before that, many Xbox gamers contacted Xbox Support about achievements not unlocking. The team acknowledged the error a while back, but it seems like the solution took a while to implement. The problem started when Xbox Live went down over the weekend.
If you were one of the people affected, you'll be happy to know that your achievements should pop up the next time you launch your console or the game. Hopefully, there won't be any other problems going forward because a lot of people are staying home due to the coronavirus outbreak.

I just booted up the Batman: Enemy Within (finished playing all 5 episodes last night). But only Achievements from Episode 1 unlocked.... the other 4 episodes still show as locked.
The only issue I had was Ori didn't give me the game completion after the credits, but this was on the game and not the service.
