Just confirmed on the Overwatch 2 stream, this will be free to play. Can't wait

Overwatch 2, launching on October 4, will be free-to-play on Windows® PC and Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and Nintendo Switch™ consoles. Anyone can join, and anyone can play and take part in our always-on, always-evolving live service. This is the most significant release in Overwatch history since its debut, and it will begin with early access to a new PvP experience, heroes, maps, and more with a new, free-to-play model. At its core, we believe the game is a social experience that should be shared with everyone. This shift to free-to-play will open up and make the world of Overwatch available to more people than ever before, removing the barrier of entry and making it easier than ever to quickly jump into a match with friends. Inclusion is a strong driving force for this decision; when we stick together and work as a team, there's nothing that can stand in our way.

Note: The October 4th Date is 'early access' wherein some content may not yet be in game (PVE)

    This is overwatch 2, sometimes games get sequals

    Thought this should probably be un-expired as it releases tomorrow, can pre-download now on PC and console from 5pm tomorrow UK time, Overwatch 2 launches at 8pm. Also a good time to make sure your battlenet accounts are linked correctly to ensure you carry over all your items from OW1 and you now need a phone number attached to your account to play.

    After reading about it, Blizzard have really stretched the meaning of "Free to Play" to new heights with this game.

    DDoS attack, my behind . Desperate excuses because they once again didn't want to spend out on making sure they could handle the load.
