Since the launch of Overwatch 2, the game has been facing some severe server issues owing to DDoS (distributed denial of servce) attacks. Blizzard has confirmed that its team is currently working on fixing these issues, which are causing players to drop connection.

Blizzard president Mike Ybarra has also taken to Twitter to confirm that the game is facing mass DDoS attacks, and that developers at Blizzard are working on fixing the issue.

The studio has confirmed that these DDoS attacks are the cause of players facing the “Unexpected Server Error” error message when trying to play Overwatch 2.

Overwatch 2 has just been released, essentially replacing the original Overwatch, which will become unplayable. The game is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.

At launch, the free-to-play game features three new heroes, the new Push game mode, and six new maps, alongside all of the content from the original Overwatch.
