Wondering if Overwatch 2's servers are down? Here's what you can do to check.
While Overwatch 2 has only been live for nearly two months, many players have been reporting technical issues, ranging from problems with merging accounts to problems with the newly implemented SMS protection feature. Luckily, Blizzard has been steadfast in acknowledging any issues that arise. As Season 2 of Overwatch 2 is on its way, knowing what to do when servers are down may be helpful as more updates are launched.
Overwatch 2: How to Check Server Status
First, to check if servers are down due to issues or planned maintenance, head over to the official Twitter account, @PlayOverwatch. Additionally, @BlizzardCS, alongside its other regional support accounts, can also be checked for any scheduled outages.
Alternatively, known issues are sometimes reported on Blizzard's forums. Timely status updates on both bugs and technical issues are often posted on a regular basis.
If nothing has been noted on any of these resources, troubleshooting your internet connection or console may also assist with server issues. Ultimately, regardless of if the issues are addressed, one of the best things to do may be to wait until further notice or until you have a stable internet connection.
