Several people expressed their frustrations regarding the overly long queue times for Overwatch 2. When players try to log on to the game, they are greeted with a prompt that tells them how many people are queueing up with them.
These long queue times are due to the influx of players coming in to try the new game. Overwatch 2 is free-to-play, a change made by Activision-Blizzard to attract more players. This change in direction proved effective, as more than 40,000 players queued up, waiting to play the game.
Activision-Blizzard is yet to release a comment regarding the server issues as continue to experience long queue times.
