What is the Disconnected from Game Server (LC-208) error in Overwatch 2?

It all comes down to making sure you have a BattleTag on your Battle.net account, especially when you’re playing on a console. You want to ensure the Battle.net account you’re using on your console is connected to the one you use on your PC. You can do this by jumping over to Blizzard’s website, logging in using your Battle.net account, and seeing what consoles you’ve connected with. Blizzard has a helpful breakdown to assist you with this.

Alternatively, you can do this in your game by launching it, going to the Welcome Screen, and using the QR you see on this screen. If you go beyond this point, go to the Options area and select the Link Accounts tab, click the Link Account option, and it will open up a browser. On this browser, log in with your Battle.net account, accept permission for the Battle.net app, and click Continue to connect the two. Hopefully, your Battle.net account is now available on your console.

If you have already gone through these steps and you’re still encountering problems, make sure your firewall is not preventing you from playing the game, as this is a common problem. You may also need to reset your network device before trying again.

We urge you to reach out to the Overwatch 2 support team on Blizzard’s website if you continue to have problems with the LC-208 error code.
