Hopefully, after these two maintenance periods, the majority of bugs and errors that have made Overwatch 2 unplayable for some will be fixed. Hopefully, you won’t have to switch regions to skip the Overwatch 2 queue after this maintenance.
If you have experienced the LC-208 error code, or any other pesky bug that has kept you from enjoying Overwatch 2, this maintenance period looks to fix many of those errors. This Overwatch 2 maintenance schedule will shut down the Overwatch 2 servers at two different times. So, plan on trying to join Overwatch 2 tomorrow night, as it would be a shame to wait in a queue only to be kicked because the servers are shutting down for a time.
With the thousands of players trying to get into Overwatch 2 mixed with the multiple DDoS server attacks Overwatch 2 has experienced, the launch of Overwatch 2 has been frustrating for everyone. During these two periods of time that the Overwatch 2 servers are down, the issue of players getting stuck in queues that don’t move will be addressed.
Overwatch 2 is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
