    Some Blizzard Entertainment games are experiencing connection issues today, August 23, as a result of a DDoS attack against the video game company's network providers.

    Blizzard made the announcement through its support channels today. The tweets came from the US and EU regions, suggesting the DDoS attack is not limited to one part of the world alone.


    We are currently monitoring a DDOS attack against network providers which is affecting latency/connections to our games.

    It's not immediately clear which games are affected, though Blizzard said multiple titles are impacted. Additionally, another tweet says Blizzard's sites and forums are "experiencing issues" right now.

    This is just the latest DDoS attack against Blizzard. Earlier this month, a similar attack affected all games accessed through Battle.net, including Overwatch, World of Warcraft, and Hearthstone. As of yet, it remains to be seen if any hacking group is claiming responsibility for this latest attack.

    Blizzard has also faced a major DDoS attack in April of this year, with Lizard Squad claiming responsibility at the time. Today's service interruption comes on the final day of Overwatch's Summer Games series, which wraps up today at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET.

    GameSpot is monitoring this story as it develops, so check back for updates.
