Overwatch 2 Under DDOS Attack on Launch Day

If you’re struggling to find a match in Overwatch 2, Blizzard shared that it is currently under a mass distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, preventing successful matchmaking.

Blizzard president Mike Ybarra shared that the Overwatch 2 servers are under a mass DDoS attack and that the teams are working to mitigate the damage.

It’s unclear how long it will take for the servers to be fully functioning, but it is marring the launch of Overwatch 2 which Blizzard has been planning for months.

Social media is full of players sharing their failed matchmaking attempts and extended queues, which are partially related to the DDoS attack.

According to the Overwatch 2 official issues page, players on both PC and consoles are encountering “Unexpected Server Errors,” along with issues like certain cosmetics and items not showing up in their collection.

Players are also being disconnected from servers.

The official Overwatch Twitter page will likely be the best source for updated information. In the meantime, you can check out IGN’s full review of Overwatch 2 to find out our thoughts on Blizzard’s long-awaited sequel.
