A sequel to the 2016 hero shooter Overwatch, Overwatch 2 is a 2022 first-person shooter game directed by Aaron Keller and developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Five days after its launch on October 4, 2022, players face numerous issues, including the LC-208 Error, which means they cannot connect to Overwatch on the console (disconnected from game servers).
It is to be noted that Overwatch 2 experienced some downtime during the October 7 maintenance as Blizzard implemented more game fixes. However, Error LC-208 is still affecting players, according to the Blizzard support website’s latest bug report. This means that the recent updates didn’t fix this issue, as many players are still unable to connect to Overwatch 2 game servers.
Though the Blizzard technical team is aware of the issue and currently working on a new update to fix it;
Unfortunately, Blizzard has no further information to share, and no timeframe is provided for how long the issue will continue. The forum agent assured fans that the development team would hopefully be able to fix up the LC-208 Error soon so that everyone could log in and play. Till then, the players will keep receiving the LC-208 error prompt until the update is finally available.
Although Blizzard is eager to resolve the issue as soon as possible, the situation is a source of frustration for players who were initially excited about the game. Blizzard continuously receives comments from irritated players who cannot play online matches.
Do you think the LC-208 Error creates a bad image of the game that is not even one week old? Or the die-hard fans of Overwatch will continue to play whenever the issue resolves? Do let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
