Zwift Announces Planned Server Outage April 5

Zwift Announces Planned Server Outage April 5

Zwift has announced that a planned outage will take place on Monday, April 5th at 7pm Pacific Daylight Time (2am Tuesday April 6 UTC). Since there’s almost nothing worse than planning a Zwift session only to have the game unavailable, we thought we’d share the news here!

The outage is planned for 2 hours and will affect all key Zwift services:

  • Zwift game launcher
  • Zwift game app
  • Zwift Companion app
  • website and sub-pages including the forum and user dashboard

Status updates will be provided on Zwift’s Status Page (

ZHQ says the outage is necessary in order to allow them to “upgrade our system performance and stability, ensuring even greater service and reliability for you and the entire Zwift community.”

Well hopefully this will stop all the folks on the Forum moaning about how crap zwift is as they can’t log on because of this and or that or the BT or Ant+ don’t work or my gosh, the light bulb in my garage has blown, how do I fix that.
Well done zwift – keep up the good work, some of us appreciate your hard effort and work. 😁

No High Availability?
Complete outage, in 2021? Think you would be able to plan this better.

Completely standard procedure… Be glad it’s not weekly like most other online game servers.

I am actually surprised there isn’t any downtime with each update.
