Overwatch 2 Release Faced by Bugs & DDOS Attacks

Overwatch 2 Launch Problems Player Queue Ddos Attacks

It’s been nearly five years since the first hints and public announcement of Overwatch 2, and fans have been patiently waiting for the sequel while experiencing a complete drought of meaningful new content for the first game.

While recent public betas and open weekends have allowed the greater public to see or get a first look at Overwatch 2 being played, the official launch so far has been nothing short of disaster.

Players everywhere are experiencing crashes, long queue times, and even worse — patiently waiting for their position in line only to get booted back to the very start.

Blizzard has finally acknowledged that they are experiencing DDOS attacks — a rather low level form of cyber attack where servers are sent a high-volume of requests — and that is the reason why players are unable to login.

Players are already busy at work trying to find workarounds or tricks to get past the long queue times, with various videos popping up with unconfirmed methods of getting a better chance to enter the game.
