Mass DDoS Attack Unplugs Overwatch 2's PS5, PS4 Servers at Launch

A load of D.Vas.

Hoping to hop on Overwatch 2? Good luck with that! The game’s been riddled with disconnects and sever timeouts all evening, due to what Blizzard boss Mike Ybarra is describing as a “mass DDoS attack”. He wrote: “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.”

Considering the clear scale of the situation, there’s currently no word on when the problems will be resolved. An official page for the game acknowledges “server disconnects” as a Known Issue, but clearly the problem has multiplied as the evening has worn on. Assuming we can eventually get connected, we’re hoping to bring you our verdict on the free-to-play sequel in the coming days.
