Blizzard DOWN: BattleNet Server Status login issues for Call of Duty, Overwatch
Blizzard Servers appear to be struggling this afternoon with server errors spiking in the last 10 minutes.
That means games played on PC such as Call of Duty, Overwatch and several Warcraft games are experiencing issues.
The website Down Detector – which tracks social mentions around certain topics to detect outages across the globe – has also seen a sharp spike of reports.
On the UK site, it's currently over 1000, but there are likely thousands more who are experiencing issues but not complaining online.
These issues also appear to be impacting users from across the globe. Not only does Down Detectors live outage map show activity in the UK, Europe and the United States, but the same confirmation of problems has also been tweeted by Blizzard North American Support account, too.
The support account has told fans:
"Currently investigating authentication and login issues. Thank you for your patience."
This error is also echoed on the games official support website with a message that reads:
"We are currently investigating reports of login issues. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Please follow @Blizzard CSEU_EN on Twitter for further updates."
