Blizzard is providing freebies to ‘Overwatch 2’ players as an apology for the game’s rocky launch
Blizzard previously admitted that the launch of Overwatch 2, which was marred by a slew of bugs, DDoS attacks, and other issues, did not live up to the company’s expectations. While the company has made significant progress toward making the game playable — many players were unable to log in at first — its work is far from finished. Now, the developer is attempting to make amends with fans by providing freebies and hosting events. It will host several Double Match XP weekends to allow players to accumulate points and rank up. Blizzard will announce specific dates for the events in the near future.
