We break down Overwatch 2’s problematic launch, the next, next Call of Duty leaks, as does the imminent release of yet another Need for Speed game. All this on today’s GameSpot News.

Overwatch 2 servers are now live, but players have been having a very hard time accessing them. Since servers went live on October 4, there have been enormous queues to get in, and oftentimes players still cannot access the game despite having 0 players ahead of them.

Perhaps more notably, Blizzard boss Mike Ybarra announced that Overwatch 2 was suffering from a “mass DDoS” attack shortly after launch, which he says is causing “a lot of drop/connection issues.”

In a subsequent, late-night update from game director Aaron Keller, it was revealed that a second DDoS was underway, but that Blizzard was “steadily making progress on server issues and stability.” He added, “We’re all hands on deck and will continue to work throughout the night. Thank you for your patience – we’ll share more info as it becomes available.”

Blizzard had previously acknowledged an “unexpected server error” that some players are receiving. Additionally, the studio has confirmed issues with players’ unlocks, including skins, not appearing, as well as Watchpoint pack buyers not having access to it. There’s no word on when these issues will be resolved, but the BlizzardCS Twitter account is providing updates as they come in, and a known issues list has been compiled on the Overwatch forums.

At the time of recording, there doesn’t seem to be any concrete answers on how to circumvent the loading screen, or fix account migration issues. Keep an eye on GameSpot dot com, where we’ll be posting updates to this story as they happen.

2025 is not only the year you’ll get to play Overwatch 2, but also the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2 according to a new leak. Reportedly developed by Sledgehammer Games, the Activision studio that led the charge on 2021’s Call of Duty Vanguard, reliable Call of Duty leaker Ralph Valve says that the studio is hoping to abandon the World War II setting of their recent work and return to the sci-fi setting that they left back in the mid-2010’s.

By contrast, 2014’s Advanced Warfare had a more near-future approach to things, with players donning mech-like “exoskeletons” that gave them superhuman abilities, like double-jumps. It featured now-disgraced actor Kevin Spacey, who was considered a major coup for the series at the time. Today, it’s probably best-known as the origin of the infamous “press F to pay respects” meme.

Ralph Valve’s report suggests that Sledgehammer was originally planning a follow-up to the WWII-themed Vanguard, but that entry failed to sell well enough to justify that.

However, another reliable leaker CharlieIntel claims that they have heard “that there is no Advanced Warfare 2 currently in development at Sledgehammer Games, despite the rumors today.” Step into the action-packed world of rolling thunder 2 game - Play it online.

Overwatch 2 – 15 Biggest New Differences From Overwatch 1

After first being announced in November 2019, Overwatch 2 finally launches on October 4th for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. It’s seen several changes from the original plan. Instead of a full retail experience at launch, the game is launching as a free-to-play early access title with the story campaign and Hero Missions rolling out later (the current plan is 2023).

However, even though PvP is the sole focus right now, there are plenty of differences between Overwatch 1 and 2 that you should know, especially since the first game will be unplayable after October 2nd. Let’s go over 15 of them here.

Overwatch 2 Free-to-Play – 10 BIG NEW Details You Need To Know

After its first closed beta for PvP, Overwatch 2 has a release date…for early access. That’s right – your favorite (or most disliked) hero shooter will be going the early access route on October 4th for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

What are all the details you should know, especially with the next closed beta set for June 28th? Let’s take a closer look.

Overwatch 2 | PS5 – Xbox Series S/X – PC | Graphics Comparison | Analista De Bits

Resolution Mode: 2160p/60fps
Balanced Mode: 1440p/60fps
Performance Mode: dynamic 2240x1260p/120fps (common 2048x1260p)

Xbox Series S
Resolution Mode: 1440p/60fps
Balanced Mode: 1080p/60fps
Performance Mode: 720p/120fps

Xbox Series X
Resolution Mode: 2160p/60fps
Balanced Mode: 1440p/60fps
Performance Mode:dynamic 2560x1440p/120fps (common 1920x1440p)

2160p with max. settings

– The visual modes on consoles only affect the resolution. All other visual settings are maintained on all platforms.
– PS5 and Series X use horizontal dynamic resolution for Performance mode. The vertical resolution is higher on Xbox, but the horizontal dynamic averaging is higher on PS5, achieving very similar sharpness results.
– The PC version has some visual advantages in certain reflections, anisotropic filtering, anti-aliasing, ambient occlusion and shadow resolution.
– Xbox Series S removes some decorative scenery elements and SSR reflections.
– Xbox Series S has a problem with visual mode switching. You will have to confirm the setting twice for the change to take effect.
– Balanced mode avoids some occasional stuttering, but in no way justifies the drop in resolution. I do not recommend this mode on any console.
– You will soon have an extensive comparison focused on performance, settings and optimization on the PC version.
– Overwatch 2 is a pretty solid game on all platforms. No matter where you play it, you will enjoy it on any system.
