Call of Duty Warzone and a couple of other huge multiplayer titles that use Battlenet servers are getting targeted in a massive DDoS attack.
Battlenet is an online service that a lot of top multiplayer titles use every day to operate the online portion of their games. Basically, it runs some of the most popular FPS games in the market such as all of the CoD titles, Overwatch, and more.
Right now, this service is facing a DDoS attack. DDoS is a cyber-attack where hackers overwhelm a network with so much unwanted malicious traffic that it cannot operate or communicate in a normal manner.
Is Battle.net down right now?
Unfortunately, due to the cyberattack on the Battle.net servers, a lot of popular games made by Blizzards Entertainment and Activision are facing connection issues. The situation has not been fixed yet, as of writing.
Activision and the people familiar with the matter are claiming that they are apparently working hard to bring things under control. Online games such as CoD Warzone require these servers for players to connect to the online lobby.
Since these servers are currently facing connectivity issues, a lot of players around the world can’t connect to the game servers. According to Activision Blizzard, they are working hard to restore the Battlenet services at the moment.
