When Will New World Servers be Back Up

The servers are expected to be back up after around 2 hours of downtime. Of course, if the developers encounter any issues, this can be prolonged, but it shouldn’t take too much time. So, all you can do is to be patient and wait a couple of hours until the game is back up again.
