What is the Mike-01 error in XDefiant?

The Mike-01 error in XDefiant simply means that your Console or PC cannot connect to the Ubisoft servers. However, this does not always mean that it’s an issue with your Console or PC, instead, this may be due to the Ubisoft servers being down.

The Ubisoft servers could be down for a number of reasons, for example an update, maintenance, or an issue on their end. In addition, the Mike-01 error may also occur shortly after an XDefiant update, meaning you should check to see if your client needs to be updated.
