With the first Overwatch 2 Beta drawing to a close, Blizzard wasted no time in announcing the second beta. Blizzard announced via Twitter that the reveal for the new beta alongside other new features would be broadcasted on June 16.

People are wondering how to gain access to it, to ensure they don't miss out. Here's all the information we know regarding the next Overwatch 2 Beta.

How to Sign Up for the June 28 Overwatch 2 Beta

Currently there is no set method for registering for the beta, nor are there many details regarding if this will be an open or closed beta. Blizzard seems set on keeping those details in check until the official release on June 16.

However, it's likely that Blizzard will keep registration the same for the second beta, should they choose to opt for a closed beta. For the first beta, all someone had to do was click the link, connect to their Battle.net account and run the game. It seems likely that this method will remain the same, due to its simplicity and ease of use.

It's unknown for certain if the beta will be open or closed, but due to the matchmaking and gameplay issues present in the last issue, opening the floodgates while still working out key issues might not be likely, so prepare for another closed beta.

As more information is announced, be sure to check back.
