Is Warzone 2 down?
As of this writing, warzone 2 is down. However, since it is being released to the entire world (i.e., hundreds of thousands of players), it may seem a bit unstable at the moment – and it may take a while to get into a match.

Fortunately, there is a website that makes it easy to find out if Warzone 2’s servers are down. Here is all the information you need to know about whether Warzone 2’s servers are down and how to check for yourself.

If your server is online but has connection problems with Warzone 2, try these fixes.
Restart your router
Turn off the Internet router, wait 30 seconds, and then turn it back on. When you come back online, you may notice that your overall connection has improved.
Restart the game console or PC
After much trial and error, the turn-off and turn-on-again methods work better than you might think! Completely reset your console or PC to reset any potential problems preventing you from having the most stable online connection.
