Blizzard has confirmed that the beta for Overwatch 2, which was announced as free-to-play during Xbox + Bethesda’s Showcase, is set to arrive at the end of this month on June 28.
With a live stream event airing overnight, which is expected to detail the game’s new hero Junker Queen, the game’s live service model, and season content plan, it’s expected that sign-ups for the beta will be open by tomorrow morning.
“We can’t wait to roll out the beginning of the Overwatch 2 experience on October 4 and introduce an exciting new competitive vision, featuring amazing new content and a reimagining of the iconic heroes, maps, and gameplay that made the original game so compelling,” Mike Ybarra, Blizzard’s president, said over the weekend.
Overwatch 2, which introduces both cross-play and a 5V5 setup, is set to release on October 4 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
