Overwatch 2 Players Getting Disconnected for Earning Xbox Achievements


Xbox Overwatch 2 players are facing a particularly annoying bug that's causing them to get disconnected from the game after earning an achievement.

As reported by GamesRadar, players have taken to Reddit to share their frustrations of not only waiting in lengthy queues for a game, but then getting kicked out of said game after earning an achievement, sending them straight back to the login screen. User ph03n1x_F0x_ said, "Anyone else dc after getting an achievement?"

"I'm seriously getting tired of waiting 30 minutes to log in, playing 3 matches, then getting another random Xbox achievement and the game telling me I'm already logged in before sending me back to the login screen. I've been enjoying the game, but the fact I'm spending more time doing other stuff waiting to get in then actually playing, and then getting kicked out because of a bug is becoming incredibly annoying."

Other players soon shared similar experiences: "Yes. Happened to me twice yesterday," one user said.

Blizzard's recent launch of Overwatch 2 has been plagued with a number of issues, from server instability to long queue times. While some issues have been fixed, others are still persisting, with Blizzard slowly rolling out additional fixes to help improve the experience.

At the time of writing, Blizzard has yet to acknowledge the achievement issue specifically but released a few more fixes yesterday to deal with some persisting bugs. A more detailed update is set to come later today.
