From IGN News:

A DDOS attack against Activision Blizzard brought down the company's PC servers for hours, leaving many users unable to play games including Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch. Activision Blizzard first acknowledged the issue in a tweet at 12:15am Pacific on September 14, saying it was investigating an issue affecting its authentication servers that was causing slow or failed login attempts for players. Around 40 minutes later, however, Activision Blizzard confirmed that its PC servers were down as a result of a DDOS attack. "We continue to actively monitor an ongoing DDOS attack which is affecting latency/connections to our games," it said in a follow-up tweet (below).

It's not clear who is respnsible for the attack, or if there was a specific motive. Alongside the previously mentioned games, Hearthstone and Diablo: Immortal were also affected by the server outages. The publisher has a busy few months on the way, as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2, and Overwatch 2 are all due to be released in 2022. A Call of Duty showcase taking place tomorrow, September 15, is expected to shed new light on both upcoming titles. Ryan Dinsdale is an IGN freelancer. He'll talk about The Witcher all day.
