Blizzard Entertainment has launched the online shooter Overwatch 2. Players can already go into five-player team battles, which take place in different parts of the world, choosing one of three dozen unique heroes.
Even though early access to the game opened an hour earlier than the announced time, thousands of people lined up to enter. However, as reported by the players, they quickly disperse, and everyone can get into the game. However, this doesn’t guarantee that the game won’t crash: the stability of the servers is still questionable.
Blizzard President Mike Ybarra, in his Twitter, wrote that the problem with the connection to the servers Overwatch 2 isn’t only caused by the vast number of people who want to play but also the fact that the company was DDoS-attacked.
According to project game director Aaron Keller, the team is dealing with the problem and is “steadily making progress” in establishing server stability. Currently, the developers are dealing with the second DDoS attack and plan to work through the night. “Thank you for your patience – we’ll share more info as it becomes available,” Keller said.
The game was released on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series. It is still unknown when those who didn’t buy the first part will be able to get acquainted with the conditionally free shooter.
