Hybrid Pulled From XBLA Amidst Server Issues [Update: Hybrid back online]

Now, Microsoft has just announced that they are pulling Hybrid from Xbox Live Arcade while they fix the problem.
"We'd like to confirm that we have identified a problem and are in the process of finding a solution," Microsoft wrote. "We will make the game available as soon as we can, and we apologize for the inconvenience! Thank you for your patience in the meantime."
Of course, this couldn't be a worse release for 5th Cells anticipated third-person shooter, their first major game after Scribblenauts, and unfortunately these types of speed-bumps tend to stay in the minds of gamers long after they have been resolved. 5th Cell will have to make a big splash once the game is available again to counteract the negativity.
[Update: Server issues have been fixed and Hybrid is back on XBLA as of this writing. 5th Cell released the following statement. "We have worked with Microsoft to diagnose and resolve the server issue surrounding Hybrid. Our entire team appreciates the overwhelming response of fans logging in on day-1 and for bearing with us during this short downtime. We expect a smooth gameplay experience from here on out."
So get in there and play!
