Something went wrong during authentication. Please try again later message in the oculus store

Level 2

So I wanted to see if I could buy the game "Drunkn Bar Fight" on the Quest platform. But when I do so, It comes up with an error message along the lines of "Something went wrong during authentication. Please try again later." and I did it on everything. Quest 2, PC, App, Web Browser and it just won't work. Get back ASAP please.


Thanks, Zach (Zachthememeking).
