Overwatch 2 will be free to play and will be available in early access
Activision Blizzard announced Sunday that Overwatch 2 will be released “in early access” on October 4th. At least the PVP aspects will be. It will also be free to play, which is a significant change from the original Overwatch, which was a paid title. It will be available for the PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
“We can’t wait to launch 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,” said Mike Ybarra, Blizzard’s president, in a press release. “This is the start of the franchise’s always-on, always-evolving era, and a recommitment to serving players with frequent and substantial updates planned well into the future to keep Overwatch 2 fresh and fun for many years to come.”
