Just yesterday, the global launch of Overwatch 2 took place, the long-awaited sequel to the famous hero shooter that hit the market in 2016 and managed to win the Game of the Year award. However, what for many was one of the most anticipated moments of the year was marred by a series of users who carried out the Overwatch DDoS attack 2 that the president of Blizzard himself was in charge of confirming.
However, many users will wonder exactly what that Overwatch 2 DDoS attack was like. To answer the question, the essential thing is to know what this type of action means. Specifically, a DDoS attack is when a group of people attack a server from many computers at the same time, with the intention that it crash and stop working.
This has been the Overwatch 2 DDoS attack that has affected many players
Considering this, the Overwatch 2 DDoS attack was as we have just explained. A large number of users decided to attack the game servers in a coordinated manner, with the intention that the server would shut down or stop responding to more access requests, which caused some users to find themselves with queues of up to 40,000 users to be able to enter the game.

For now, it is unknown who carried out this Overwatch 2 DDoS attack, or the motives behind it. However, it is most likely that it is a group of users dissatisfied with the work of Activision Blizzard, since it must be remembered that at the same time that Overwatch 2 was released, the servers of the first title ceased to be operational, so that the only way to play the franchise was through this sequel.
Until now, the problems that this attack has caused to the game have not been solved, especially since a second attack was subsequently carried out, which has also caused some skins and objects did not appear correctly. It only remains to hope that the Activison Blizzard team is able to find a solution as quickly as possible.
