MLB The Show 20 servers are just like any other video game servers: they can go down from time to time leaving players unable to play the game.
MLB The Show 20 is the latest entry in SIE San Diego’s popular baseball simulator franchise. The latest entry, exclusively released on PlayStation 4 on March 17, features Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez on the cover. New features including Minor League Baseball rosters added for the first time, updated in-game mechanics and more have been well received by the community.
Although, fans can’t enjoy the game fully when servers go down because of an update or issues. Here’s how to check if the MLB The Show 20 servers are down.
First off, head to the MLB The Show and PlayStation Twitter accounts. These accounts will be imperative to follow for updates regarding server issues. Next, sites like DownDetector are a useful tool to see if other players in your area or elsewhere are experiencing server issues.
DownDetector has a heat map showing recently reported cases of server issues. The site won’t necessarily tell you why the servers are down, but it’s a useful tool regardless.
