Overwatch 2 players on Xbox are furious as an irritating bug kicks them out of games

OVERWATCH 2 players have noticed a number of bugs since launch last week, including one that appears to be specific to players on Xbox.

Even before launch, players were disappointed to hear that the game would require new users to complete a hundred games before all of the game’s heroes would be unlocked.

Developer Blizzard also wanted players to verify their accounts with a phone number before being allowed into the game.

It has since partially reversed that decision by banning players on prepaid cellular plans.

However, none of that compares to the frustration players felt upon launching the game.

Several cyber attacks were carried out on the game’s servers, which meant that the queues reached up to 50,000 players.

While Blizzard has now managed to control the attacks, players still suffer from issues as soon as they enter the game.

In particular, a number of fans playing on Xbox have encountered an annoying bug that throws them out of games.

The bug occurs whenever a player gets an achievement on Xbox, which is an award that players receive for reaching certain milestones in games.

There are hundreds of achievements for Overwatch 2, and each time a player earns one, they are kicked from their game.

Since achievements are often awarded when players do well, this is particularly frustrating.

There’s even an achievement for choosing your first hero, meaning Xbox players are guaranteed to get booted from their first game.

At the moment it seems that the majority of Xbox players choose to play on other platforms or wait for the problem to be solved.

Some have tried disabling notifications for achievements in their console settings, but that doesn’t seem to have helped in most cases.

Other players report that if they leave the game in the middle of a ranked match, their account gets banned for 15 minutes.

Although players have reported the issue on both the Overwatch 2 Reddit page and the official forums, Blizzard has not responded to those threads.

The only comment that can be found regarding this issue is from Overwatch’s official Twitter account.

It states: “Fixes will be rolled out over the next few hours to address many of the remaining LC-208 bugs.”

This is the name of the error related to Xbox achievements.
