Players who have merged their PC and console accounts for Overwatch 2 have been hit with an "Unexpected Server Error". Here's what you need to know.

Overwatch's long-awaited, free-to-play sequel Overwatch 2 launched yesterday on Oct. 4. As expected, huge amounts of fans were eager to jump in from day one and experience the changes. Sadly, many players were hit with an array of issues. From huge queues to server disconnects, many were lucky if they even managed to squeeze in a game at all.

Players who had merged their Blizzard PC and console accounts faced a particularly annoying issue, an "Unexpected Server error" message. This hasn't effected every player, but a significant portion. Enough for Blizzard to take notice, at least.
