Shortly after the release of Overwatch 2, players found it extremely difficult to manage and play the game. Lags, connection issues, and other deficiencies are present but no stranger to the developers who have seemingly pinpointed the issues. As it was presented, all of this is caused by a massive DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack.
This issue was confirmed by Mike Ybarra, president of Blizzard Entertainment on Twitter. According to him, the team behind is working hard to mitigate the attacks, which, again, are the main cause of today’s Overwatch 2 turbulence.
Unfortunately we are experiencing a mass DDoS attack on our servers. Teams are working hard to mitigate/manage. This is causing a lot of drop/connection issues. https://t.co/4GwrfHEiBE

Overwatch 2 is the sequel to Overwatch, deemed to introduce an improved gameplay experience. The game launched today and has suddenly become a victim of the most common yet scariest type of attack. DDoS attacks can be brutal, as it was proven throughout history. All we can do is wait until the developer founds a way to mitigate these attacks, or until the criminals get bored.
