We are less than four months away from the release of Overwatch 2. The highly anticipated sequel will be here before you know it as it is scheduled launch on October 4, 2022. However, you won’t have to wait until October 4 to get your hands on the game.

Announced in a Tweet by Blizzard, sign-ups for the Beta will begin on June 16. On June 28, gamers who have signed up for the Beta will have access to start playing Overwatch 2.

It is also said in their official Tweet that you will be able to play as the all-new Junker Queen character, along with trying out one of Overwatch 2’s new map. Sign ups for the beta are for Xbox, PlayStation and PC, suggesting this will be the first time console players get to jump in. The previous beta was exclusive to PC.

June 16 also marks the date that the Overwatch 2 reveal event will be taking place. Not only will we be able to see some footage from the reveal, but I am sure that we will also have many more of our questions answered. You can watch this event right on the official PlayOverwatch YouTube channel and on their Twitch channel. The event kicks off at 10:00 a.m. PST, 12:00 p.m. CST, and 1:00 p.m. EST.

Summarizing what Blizzard Entertainment already hinted, they will be working with the community from what they see and learn from the Overwatch 2 Beta in order to make sure that they can deliver the best possible game for their fans. This Beta will help out Blizzard Entertainment a ton as they can get community feedback and fix know problems that gamers are facing.
