I am having a similar issue where me and my roomate cannot connect to a game together. Either one of us gets an error message or we both do.

We've both gotten the timed out error message, and also a "bad challenge" error message.

We can join the party fine and play with others, but we cannot connect to one another.

Are you both on Xbox One? Xbox Support tweeted some sign in errors about an hour ago.
