If you were planning on playing New World today, and perhaps levelling up your stats, you're going to need to know if everything is running well on the developer's side of the game.
Being an online-only MMORPG, you'll need to have an online connection to the relevant server to play any part of the game, and while maintenance isn't uncommon, usually the developer behind the title would explain when downtime is planned and for what reason it would be happening.

Sometimes small portions of New World might be unavailable, such as character transfer or character creation, but you might be able to play and get your daily tasks done.

If the developer delivers an update on why it's down, or when it's coming back, you'll find that here as well.
