Hybrid, 5th Cell's free-floating third-person shooter, has been removed from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Hybrid, 5th Cell's free-floating third-person shooter, has been pulled from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The game launched today, but was taken down after a few hours because of severe server issues, and it turns out that high network traffic wasn't the culprit.

"We have identified a problem and are in the process of finding a solution. We will make the game available as soon as we can and apologize for the inconvenience," wrote 5th Cell on its Facebook page earlier today. Microsoft and 5th Cell are now "in the process of implementing a solution."

Hybrid, as the fourth of five Summer of Arcade titles, is a high-profile Xbox Live Arcade release. We'll update this post with any new information, including when the game is available again.

UPDATE: Hybrid is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Posting on the 5th Cell Facebook page, the developers wrote:


We have worked with Microsoft to diagnose and resolve the server issue surrounding Hybrid. Our entire team appreciates the overwhelming response of fans logging in on day-1 and for bearing with us during this short downtime. We expect a smooth gameplay experience from here on out.

It may take several hours for it to reappear on your Xbox dashboard again.
