Sometimes New World will go down for maintenance. These server downtimes are usually scheduled and last a few hours.

As mentioned above, the New World site is the place to visit should you require detailed information on server maintenance and downtime. Online games like MMOs tend to have weekly maintenance windows where the game is taken offline so the team can push out patches, fixes, and other updates to improve the play experience.

We’ll be certain to update this section once Amazon Games notifies users of any New World maintenance downtimes or scheduled server events that will take the game offline. You should also visit the New Worlds Twitter page for updates on server downtime. The developers often provide information on the times servers will be offline, like what you see in the Tweet embedded below.

Hopefully the information provided here is enough to give an insight into the state of New World. The longer the game is out, the more information will become available regarding New World server status, queue times, and even maintenance downtimes and the like.
