It has been revealed by Blizzard that the Overwatch 2 servers will be taken offline for maintenance today, which takes place on October 6th, 2022. During the maintenance of Overwatch 2, an attempt will be made to solve many problems, an attempt will be made to address the absurdly lengthy queue times, and several user experiences will be updated. The following times will result in the Overwatch 2 servers being unavailable due to maintenance.
When is the Overwatch 2 server going to be taken offline?
Maintenance will be performed on the Overwatch 2 servers today, October 6, 2022, at three o’clock pm and six o’clock pm Pacific Time. The servers will be out for approximately one hour beginning at 3:00 pm Pacific Time (PT), and they will remain offline for approximately three hours beginning at 6:00 pm PT.
It is hoped that the vast majority of the faults and flaws that have rendered Overwatch 2 unplayable for certain users will be repaired after these two maintenance periods have concluded. After this maintenance, it is hoped that you will not be required to transfer regions in order to bypass the Overwatch 2 queue.
If you have encountered the LC-208 error code or any other annoying problem that has prevented you from enjoying Overwatch 2, this maintenance period aims to solve many of those errors. If you have any questions or concerns about this maintenance period, please contact us.
Because of the maintenance plan for Overwatch 2, the servers for Overwatch 2 will be taken offline at two distinct times. It would be a waste of time to wait in line just to get booted out of the game because the servers are going to be shutting down for some time, so make it a point to attempt to join Overwatch 2 tomorrow night.
The launch of Overwatch 2 has been a source of frustration for everyone involved due to the hundreds of players who are attempting to get into the game at the same time as the various DDoS server assaults that Overwatch 2 has been subjected to. The issue of players getting caught in lines that don’t move will be addressed during these two periods of time when the Overwatch 2 servers will be unavailable.

Overwatch 2 may now be played on the PC, the PlayStation 5, the PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. It can also be played on the Nintendo Switch.
