Overwatch 2 servers down on launch day

Update

Blizzard has been working late into the night trying to respond to the DDoS attack that prevents players from accessing Overwatch 2, but is still trying to fix the situation and make it playable.

Game Director Aaron Keller reported 5 hours ago that Blizzard teams stayed up overnight to fix this, but a second DDoS attack has complicated matters and millions of players are still waiting to play OVerwatch 2.

This was not the desired way to mark the launch of Overwatch 2 and improvements are expected later in the day, but the start of the game is marked by this unfortunate occurrence.
