      If neither point applies to you, please ensure that, if you are using a Gamepass subscription that the subscription is up-to-date and that you are using the correct Microsoft Account on your device, please also ensure the correct account is used if you are not playing the game via Gamepass.

      Please, as always, keep the comments productive - only leave a comment if you think you have information that could help to solve the issue.

      I'm starting the game via Gamepass and as soon as the titlescreen comes, I must press a button and then a window pops up and tells me the game can't verify if I do own the game on my Xbox account or not, and that I must connect to internet, which I am.

      I linked a screencapture that's written in french, because my account's on a french computer.
