Yesterday there was a new patch for Overwatch, patch, after updating it today I get stuck on a blank screen when booting up the game.

  1. Tired uninstalling and reinstalling Overwatch
  2. Even uninstalled and reinstalled Blizzard Battle.net just in case.

Neither made a difference, I am still stuck on the blank screen.

  • Has anyone had a similar issue?
  • How did you solve it?
  • A "didn't work" usually does not help, can you please post your system specifications? – Lemon Jul 2 '18 at 16:57

I've had this problem for ~6 months now, PTR and Live.

I have a Windows 10 box, and what I do when I encounter this is

  1. Create a new Desktop (using Windows+D)
  2. Open up Task Manager in the new desktop
  3. End the Overwatch and Battle.net Launcher processes
  4. Open the Launcher and try again

I've had to repeat this process 6-7 times sometimes before it works, but it always eventually works.
