Overwatch servers slammed after release of new character Ana

You might have to wait a little longer before trying out that healing sniper lady.
Many players are having problems logging into Overwatch following the recent release of a new patch that introduced the team-based shooter’s first new hero, Ana. Some players were even disconnected from games. Lots of people are likely trying to enter the shooter at once, which could cause a big strain on the game’s servers.
Blizzard has noted that it is looking into the problem.
Some #Overwatch players may be experiencing latency or disconnections. We are investigating this now.

Overwatch came out in May for PC, PlayStation 4, and PC. It has become another popular game for Blizzard, which also runs World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. The new patch also brought significant changes to many of Overwatch’s current characters, including the tank D.Va and the healer Zenyatta.
