If this is the case, then you can only be patient until Blizzard solves the issue. Issues with the server typically cause login errors in Overwatch 2. This could be too many players trying to connect at once, or the servers are undergoing maintenance. Avoiding peak times will help you avoid server overflow, but with maintenance, all you can do is wait.

We recommend checking the Overwatch Twitter and Blizzard support page to see if there are any known issues or current maintenance. This will help you determine any login errors and the ongoing failed to connect to game server issues.
