Overwatch servers being shut down after Oct. 2nd, 2022
Your watch has ended...
Overwatch 2 is less than a month away, launching on October 4th, 2022. That means there’s precious little time left to play the original Overwatch, as those servers are being shut down to move things over to Overwatch 2. Just how long do you have left to play? You better get your original Overwatch fun in before Oct. 3rd, 2022.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Blizzard confirmed that the last day for Overwatch servers is October 2nd, 2022. After that, there will be a whopping 27 hours of downtime where Blizzard revamps the servers for Overwatch 2, which again, kicks things off on October 4th, 2022.
Blizzard notes that they’ll give current Overwatch players the ability to download Overwatch 2 a little bit ahead of launch, and they’ll also be asking players to take care of a few things before Overwatch 2 launches. This will be a sort of checklist for players to handle in order to make the jump to Overwatch 2 as smooth as possible.
